Textile Echoes

by Kerstin Jakobsson

These oil paintings show multiple layers of echoes from the past.

It shows the shadows of those who created master pieces of crafts, and fragments of textiles. The paintings also shows echoes from my own background.

For my whole life I have been collecting "know how" in textile techniques, a quest that ultimately also gave me the women behind. Today I see how my knowledge forming a track into the darkness of history, where all those who created are gone, but their textiles still glows of color and life. They are living examples of the power of creativity. An inspiration.

All paintings below 55x65 cm.
