WOVEN WATERS

230 x 230 cm
In contrast to large parts of the world, in Europe there is still a huge amount of clean water, but the resources are endangered: In the South of Spain, every third river contents more salt than seawater - so southern Spain is threatened by desertification. Compared with that Austria is full of water sanctuaries.
I created the work “Woven Waters” with the intention to practice gratitude and to raise the awareness of this gift. The materials and techniques I used are symbolizing a holy river landscape: Indigo-dyed wool with its blue color represents clean water and willow sticks collected in riparian forests in Austria symbolize the natural environment of waters.
For generations, caring hands have woven and knitted warming and protective clothes. Nature needs the same kind of thoughtfulness. Thus I employed the time-consuming techniques crocheting and weaving to express my gratitude and care for the sanctuary.
Medium: wool, willow sticks
Technique: indigo dyeing, crochet, weaving
