Naturrutan – A visualization of nature with nature
In my exam project have I created weaves which I’ve painted on with natural colors. My intention in this project is to present the colors of nature. Both natures tonality and the pigments that could be created from plants. Nature and its colors works as a visually library for me. In color and form investigations am I using natural materials and being inspired of natures forms, structures and color combinations. The forest and the seaside are the inspiration for this work.
I have picked and collected plants that I’ve boiled into color concentrates and later on painted on the warp before I weaved it. I’ve painted my inner pictures I have from nature, after I’ve made color maps and studied the visual expressions of nature.
The weaves are made from wool and linen. I’ve made pigments from heather, cones from al tree, red cabbage, red onion and blueberry bush.
