Pink, Pop, Polykrom 2015
And later the project went viral on pinterest
“We salute the sketch and that which is unfinished. The incomplete that arouses curiosity and opens for opportunities. Raw edges, the presence of humans and time. We nurture the experimental. A process for the unknown, a manifestation of rapid thinking and the spontaneous quest for the sublime. We love colour and texture. Out with all the rules and the opinions of others and in with spots of colour. Bring on the distortion. Our textile training has taught us a love of pattern. Anni Albers and Gunta Stolzl. Our history, our passion. Vertical, horizontal, organic, geometric, contextual and contrasting.”
We salute the sketch is a joint project between Helle Gråbæk and Maria Høgh-Mikkelsen, both textile designers and both senior lecturers at Kolding School of Design. In 2018 they met up for two days in Maria’s studio and did nothing but play. They painted beautiful colours on paper, cut the paper in strips and finally wove samples inspired by classical weaving patterns.
