Based on the ikat weaving technique, Ikat III by Astrid Krogh is a treat for the eyes. This tapestry of light and colors is made of plain paper yarn to create the illusion of a falling cascade of tonalities and light. Born in Denmark, Krogh creates an art that is visually entertaining and calming.
Ikat III is part of a trilogy of tapestries that complement each other as a single work. According to the artist, Ikat "is characterized by detailed coloring and immense precision in weaving, making it possible to create smooth transitions between patterns." Krogh recreated this technique by using optic fibers illuminated by lights of different colors. The lights and fibers form mesmerizing patterns and stunning transitions of hues, making this series magical.
Ikat III by Astrid Krogh feels like an endless river of beauty.
