Knit Design + Contemporary Wall Hangings

3 Oct


Wall hanging by Kyung-Yeun Chung

This week I was in the library researching contemporary wall hangings as inspiration for a current project in which my design idea is for a 3 dimensional wall hanging that will depict an abstract seascape. Hints of brightly coloured ribbon will be interwoven with knitted tubes to represent boat masts. I will add some drawn designs and samples of my knitting at a later date. I have been inspired by the work of Shin-Ja Lee and Kyung-Yeun Chung, which I came across in a book entitled ‘Art Textiles of the World-Korea’. Unfortunately I cannot find the particular piece of work by Shin-Ja Lee online, however I will perhaps upload a photograph of the piece ‘ Conversation of Autumn’ at a later date. In the meantime follow this link to have a look at some work by Shin-Ja Lee http://www.monthlyart.com/cybergallery/great_artist/eng/art_11/gallery.html
