Inspired by the vintage artwork of the Kuba people in what is today the Democratic Republic of the Congo. I wanted to present the central figure as hovering over an abstract desert landscape. It interested me to shift this motif into a unexpected environment.
About the Artist:
I started hooking rugs about 20 years ago but in the last 6 years I’ve done almost all the body of my work. Using smaller cuts I can get the sort of crisp lines that show smaller detail.
