The synthesis of structure/skin/ornament explore the interface between nature and culture, or that of a cultural artefact. While reconstructing a famous Romantic painting, the work represents in a visual striking way the shape of an iceberg, as if one would have, by circumstances due to the global warming, ended up in the fjord in front of the opera house
I just came across this amazing rug by Timothy Liles on a hunt to dress up my living room a bit warmer for the colder season.
Timothy brings a fresh approach to using a traditional technique whilst using imagery of modern pop icons. The rug is part of a series of design products influenced by traditional American craft; nostalgia & pride. All pieces in the collection are hand made by craftsmen, the double side rug is made of hand-laced wool by County Braid House
