Fiber art vol. 2 - kuituja ja käsitteitä

Julia Elsas
grey group 2012

Her name is Julia Elsas.  Her work differs from Joetta's a lot. Her color palette is narrower and much more minimalistic. Now with her own words and pictures.

"I am particularly interested in fabrics that are traditionally used in and associated with women’s intimate apparel, because I see them as suggestive of the tension between the revealed and the concealed in acts of courtship, flirtation, and sensuality."

"I am interested in the universal human mating dance, which I see as a suspenseful and ambiguity-filled game. I explore the subtleties and tensions of desire and voyeurism."

"In my work, I use my own body as the medium through which I investigate longing, self-reflection, relationships, and sexual and emotional tension."
