I think this is pattern kind of fresh.

A couple of danish artists - Tal R and Peter Callesen. And in the even younger class Sophie Dupont and Tanja K. Jensen

The cliff and the church








This church in Maarup (DK) is placed 10 m from the cliff - in a few years it won't be here anymore, as the sea is "eating" the cliff every day. In 1787 the church was build 2 km from the cliff.

Walking

video

Maybe he is hearing this when taking a walk with a little pitstop? My first very short and simple movie.

Triple colour patterns






Here is two of my patterns in triple colours.

I am sure looking forward to a call from this place (in danish). I'm on their waiting list for new users in their screenprinting workshop - hopefully in april.



Ceramic tiles

Maybe this pattern could be good on tiles.

See some arabian tiles here

This one is made by two different folded patterns - one with lines and one with harlekin pattern.

Folded pattern #2

Another of my repeated folded pattern designs. This one is sixties-inspired.

For more traditional patterns - tribal textile primarily from southwest China and southeast Asia here

Folded pattern

My first try with folded pattern and repeat technique...more is sure to come!

The Textile Museum of Canada show a lot of textile patterns from all over the world and offers good information about the patterns.

Overtones


This little guy is my newest print - maybe you saw it printed on the clothes in the previous post.

I am pretty amazed by overtone singing at the moment. So here comes some links. Maybe you also can you hear the overtones?

David Hykes sings overtones here and here - awesome!

And heres is some Tuvan throat singing and the trio Chirgilchin - special but very interesting if you ask me.

Working with print







Printing some of my works on clothes - these are my first two tries. I can only dream of how they would look when screen printed...hope for an opportunity to try that out some time.
