COLOR ME OBSESSED.

I stumbled upon Sigrid Calon's work on Pinterest and instantly fell in love. The colors, the patterns, everything about it spoke to me.

A little back story about the artist via Juxtapoz:

Dutch visual artist Sigrid Calon's beautiful designs are inspired by the stitched patterns of embroidery and based on the horizontals and diagonals of a piece of aida cloth. She uses a simple set of rules that allow lines to be repeated or combine, outlined or not, etc. She then introduces eight colors and complex gradients that are available in Risography to add depth and volume to the grids.

This piece was woven at The TextielMuseum in The Netherlands.

Elaborated more on her website:

Sigrid Calon’s work is formed through the desire and the curiosity to investigate, discover and create. Making new connections and to look differently at what we take for granted. This investigative mentality is separate from a set working method or usage of a certain type of material: what does the space demand? The assignment? Or the moment? Research into identity is very important in her work: what is the essence? Is there a new truth? Through these questions, Calon imagines the chaos of possibilities in a clear and pure manner. Aspects such as intuition, rationality and playfulness are of importance here. Calon searches for wonderment and is inspired by the things around her, preferably things that are meant for something different: materials, but also objects, situations or spaces. To what extent can you explore the autonomy of applied data?
