Finally the WTA 6th Biennial of Contemporary Textile Art ended and here is the work I've exhibited - one full image and a detail.
Name of the work: "The Colours of the Air" - "Los Colores del Aire". In Spanish because this year it took place in Mexico.
Here also the concept of the work, in Spanish and English:
Para tejer esta obra me inspiré en el tema de la contaminacion. El aire lleno de gases nocivos toma colores diferentes, brilla y se vuelve amarronado y amarillento en algunas partes. El choque de las particulas gaseosas que flotan sin control provoca una explosion que desgarra la capa creada por la polucion y deja ver el cielo puro que estaba detras. Los colores del aire surgen y se imponen sobre todo lo demas. Los azules se mezclan con los restos de la explosion que los invvaden sin control. La luz se abre paso filtrandose a traves del caos. Finalmente todo tiende a acomodarse antes que venga la noche. Otra vez los colores del aire vuelven a aparecer en todo su esplendor.
My inspiration for this work came from the issue of contamination. The air full of noxious fumes takes many different colours, it shines and turns tones of brown and yellow. Gas particles floating uncontrollably crash and blow tearing the layer created by the pollution and expose the clean sky behind. All the colours of the air emerge and dominate everything. Wildly, the remains of the explosion invade the blue shades.The light makes its way and filters through the chaos. finally, everything seems to accomodate before the night. The colours of the air appear again and show in full splendor.
