One of a Kind item
Universe I | denim, cotton | machine pieced and quilted | 1,88 x 1,45 m | 2016

This series was created in the period 2016 -2019.
The idea for it are pictures that appear in my mind, then I cut out countless squares and then I puzzled as long as it corresponded to the picture in my head.

Despite the formally same structure and the same material, all variations are very different in their colourfulness and expression.

The quilting of the three layers in these works is done exactly in the seam, so that you can only see the seams from the backside.

Contemporary Quilts

After I had learned a lot of clothing industry during my apprenticeship, subsequent studies and various work placement I noted that I have much more pleasure cutting all imaginable textile materials and putting them in a new unexpected context.

For me, the patchwork quilt is the ideal medium for merging colour, material and pattern into a complex visual mesh, thereby emphasising and preserving the beauty of this material. In order to preserve the current zeitgeist, I mainly use old clothes for my work. My attention is drawn at the visible traces of use such as patches, scrapes and holes, because they tell stories from the past life of the textiles and their wearers.

Knowing how much energy and work has to be used for the production of clothing, sustainable resource-saving use of textiles is particularly important to me.
