Soft Squares

My collection is located in the gray area between structured images and chaotic dreams. Inspired by the kaleidoscope I transferred forms like the square, triangle and the circle to prints and textiles, with the goal to confuse the viewer. As an example I work with materials that are mirroring and reflecting, so depth is suggested that in reality isn’t there. Or I pleat and fold flat fabrics so that the illusion of a 3-dimensional image is created based on  2-dimensional materials. In my prints I look for similar three-dimensional illusions by using perspective effects. I am trying to generate confusion through layering and transparency of prints and textiles. As a result, the viewer does not know where a print of garment begins or ends. In this way I try to create a world where feeling and ratios are balanced.
