Ase Ljones

Thread Suns, 1999

Ase Ljones is from Norway. She uses hand stitching to make very contemplative surfaces relating to nature. I read about her work in Embroidery magazine Sept-Oct 2008 in an article by Jessica Hemmings.

Wandering Towards the South, 1999, 288 x 255 cm, cut rubber

The things she makes have a material beauty that she is able to combine with an ethical stance. She often uses recycled materials such as old inner tube rubber. Her work shows an extraordinary committment of time that is directly related to labour.
Intention is prioritised over speed.
