Shaping the Inner Light
Romanian symbolism associates wool with prosperity, wealth, and fecundity; wool is the symbol of sun and gold, it is more about spirituality than materiality.Working with craftsman, connecting to our ancestors and rediscovering their crafts, in order to acknowledge, understand and pass on to future generations is the motivation behind my work for over a decade. The aim of this exploration is to highlight the interconnectivity between the maker, the craft, and fabric of the place, which is inevitable to hold on to the ideal harmony, a constant scope for all creatives. As such, I have chosen wool as the focus material because it signifies purity and truth. The twisted rope created is perceived as infinite since ancestral times, raising up to the sky, becoming the Axis Mundi, sacred and protective, a process outlined through the toned-down light.
