Textile art by French artist Elsa Noyons.
140 x 110 cm
A curation of beautiful locally sourced (sometimes century-old) unique fabrics that are often gifted to her. Elsa uses a stunning mix of linen, silk, and cotton materials.
“Each piece is constructed as a sort of memory postcard or talisman. I first choose a background format that I cut out of old white linen sheets, then I choose colors and materials. I cut shapes directly into the fabric without any prior drawing, and then I compose and assemble them while looking for the image that emerges. Pieces of architecture come to structure the composition. Sometimes I think of a place, a person, an event, a movie, or a dream. But most of the time, I am directly inspired by what surrounds me. The figures and symbols help me tell a story and infuse an intention.”
