"This tapestry presents a dreamscape inspired by 19th Century French scenic wallpapers; papers that wrapped a room with exotic landscapes, transporting the viewer on a fantastic journey from the comfort of their own home." Fiona Curran
Fantastic Journey measures 5' x 3'7" (1.52 x 1.10m) and is supplied stretched on a wooden frame.
Through abstract collages, English artist Fiona Curran explores how colour, composition and space affect us.
Accustomed to working with paint and cut paper, for the first time Curran makes use of the exceptional quality of handmade rugs and tapestry with her collection for The Rug Company. Her designs invite us to experience bright and plentiful colour through something soft and tactile, rather than from looking at a computer screen.
The slit-tapestry or Aubusson technique of weaving is one of the finest and most challenging ways of making a rug. The minute size of each stitch allows the weaver to produce designs of great intricacy, and requires much skill, experience and time.
Mounted on a wooden stretcher for hanging.
