Plan for a Rug #artistimpression, 2015
Ink, pencil and watercolour, 36.5 x 32.6 cm.
Plan for a Rug #ArtistImpression reflects on stereotypes of art making, and features motifs of pens, pencils and perspectival lines. The drawing is also a proposal for an art work in the form of a rug. Eldret has recently spent time in a Zapotec community in Mexico, where she has designed and commissioned a series of woollen rugs that combine her own observations and research interests with the makers’ life stories and anecdotes.
