The Contrapposto tapestry shows a classical figure, with his weight shifted and body with a slight twist, it represents the first time in ancient Greek art that the body is meant to represent a phycological disposition. In this work the figure is distorted through the use of slide scanning a process of image making when a photograph is moved on a scanner bed, this created an abstraction which untethers the image from our reality. The resulting images gives the viewer the idea steady movement, while remaining perfectly still.
All of our fine art works are created in our studio and we work with an independent weaver to create our fine art textile. This 50" x 60" tapestry is woven in the U.S. with 100% cotton. The Contrapposto is ideal on a wall as a centerpiece tapestry, or as an impressive throw.
