Miniaturi textile 2013


Saptamana trecuta s-a deschis in Bucuresti, la Galeria Orizont, expozitia "Miniaturi Textile 2013". Va putea fi vizitata pana la 23 martie. Nu puteam lipsi de la un astfel de eveniment care este o reala incantare pentru mine. Ideea miniaturilor textile imi place tare mult, pentru ca pe o suprafata mica poate fi inglobata o cantitate mare de creativitate. Am fost incantata sa vad creatii minunate ale unor artiste a caror arta am ajuns s-o cunosc din expozitii si sa le admir mult: Angela Semenescu, Maria Negreanu, Ana Maria Rugescu, Hermina Csata, Adriana Dobra, Adriana Popa Canija, Marijeana Bitulescu, Natalia Udrea, Claudia Musat, Cela Neamtu, Claudia Tudoran, Felicia Cenan, Zoe Vida Porumb si altele. O multitudine de tehnici, un festival al culorilor si texturilor, totul facut sa incante ochii si sa bucure sufletul....
Iata cateva imagini.

Last week, it was opened in Bucharest, Horizon Gallery, the exhibition "Textile Miniatures 2013". Can be visited till March 23. I could not miss, such an event is a real delight for me. I like the idea of ​​textile miniatures very much, because in a small area can be incorporated a large amounts of creativity. I was delighted to see the wonderful creations of artists that I ended up to know them from exhibitions and admire for their art: Angela Semenescu, Maria Negreanu, Ana Maria Rugescu, Hermina Csata, Adriana Dobra, Adriana Popa Canija, Marijeana Bitulescu, Natalia Udrea, Claudia Musat, Cela Neamtu, Claudia Tudoran, Felicia Cenan, Zoe Vida Porumb and others. A multitude of techniques, a festival of colors and textures, all made ​​to delight your eyes and enjoy soul ....

Patchwork Exhibition in Bucharest

 

In spatiul generos oferit de Muzeul Costumului (sectie a Muzeului Satului "Dimitrie Gusti") din Palatul Parlamentului - Camera deputatilor, s-a deschis, de 8 Martie, expozitia de quilturi "Arta din peticele".  
Expozitia este deschisa pana la sfarsitul lunii martie 2013 si merita sa fie vizitata. Este un eveniment unic, pentru ca sunt putine persoane in Romania care se ocupa cu aceasta arta.
In expozitie pot fi vazute lucrari de patchwork traditional si contemporan create de doamne din Asociatia Romana de Patchwork. Particip si eu printr-o lucrare colectiva. A fost o bucurie sa intalnesc din nou  persoane cu care impartasesc aceeasi pasiune, arta textila, si pe care le pretuiesc pentru talentul lor.
Iata cateva fotografii din expozitie.

On March 8, was opened in Bucharest, an exhibition of patchwork, traditional and modern. It is housed in the Museum of Costume, generous exhibition space at the Parliament Palace in Bucharest. The works in the exhibition are made by artists from the Romanian Association of Patchwork in recent years. I participate in a collective work. It was a joy to meet again people who share the same passion, textile art, and that I appreciate for their talent.
Here are some photos from the exhibition.














Vizionare placuta!

In Romania, March 8 is a special day. It is Women's Day. In this day is celebrated woman, mother, wife, or  lover. Men have the opportunity to give a gift to the ladies of their life and certainly it will be a Martzisor and flowers. It is a homage to women. This day is a day of flowers, you can see many women that carries flowers gift. Moreover, in recent years there is a new habit, cops stop driver ladies not to give a fine but to give them a flower. Is not that sweet? Also, women celebrate their own in private parties.  



 Have a Happy day! A good thought from me...

1 Martie....Martzisor


In sfarsit...a venit primavara!
1 Martie este o speranta, de renastere a naturii si a noastra.
Tuturor cititorilor blogului meu, va daruiesc cu drag un martisor si o floare de frezia.


Finally ...spring is coming!
March 1 is the hope, the rebirth of nature and ours.
All my blog readers I will gladly dedicate one Martzisor and delicate freesia flower.
For followers of other countries I want to tell you what is Martzisor. Martzisor word comes from March. In Romania, Martzisor is a symbol of the coming spring. It is a gift for March 1 we give to friends or loved ones to the joy of the coming spring. Martzisor is made from two threads of silk, white and red, twisted, with red and white tassels ends. He is embellished with a small ornament or brooch.
Enjoy yourself.

Painting experiments


Eu sunt autodidacta. Tot ce am invatat in materie de arta textila a fost din studiul pe internet si colaborarea cu alte artiste. Urmaresc bloguri, tutoriale, m-am abonat la reviste online sau mi-am cumparat carti de pe internet. Si bineinteles.... experimentez.
Acum am incercat sa pictez, asa cum am simtit s-o fac, fara sa cunosc prea multe lucruri, fara sa urmez niste cursuri. Odata am vrut sa ma inscriu la niste cursuri de grafica, dar o pictorita, care mi-a vazut niste lucrari textile, mi-a spus sa-mi urmez drumul meu.
Nu am mai facut asta pana acum, dar imi place. M-am jucat cu o foaie mototolita de hartie printata, adica am reciclat-o, am pus niste culori acrilice, apoi niste creioane colorate Faber Castell si creioane uleioase. Am vrut doar sa realizez o textura care sa-mi aminteasca de texturile cristalelor lichide pe care le vedeam la microscop cand ma ocupam de fizica.... si mi-a iesit. Texturile optice ale cristalelor lichid sunt fascinante, dar bineinteles ca nu pot fi redate intocmai, pot fi doar o sursa de inspiratie.
Iata cateva detalii din ceea ce am facut...

I am self-taught. Everything I learned in the field of textile art was by studying online and working with other artists. Follow blogs, tutorials, I subscribed to magazines or books I bought on the internet.  

And of course .... experiment.

Now I tried to paint as I felt to do it, without knowing too much, not to follow some courses. Once I wanted to enroll in some courses in graphics, but a painter who saw some of my textile work, told me to follow my path.
I've never done this before, but I like it. I played with a crumpled sheet of printed paper (that I recycled it), I applied some acrylic colors and then some oil crayons and pencils.

I just wanted to achieve a texture that reminded me of liquid crystal textures that I have seen under the microscope when I deal with physics .... and went out. Optical textures of liquid crystals are fascinating, but of course can not be played exactly, can only be a source of inspiration.

Here are some
some details of what I did.

Scraps...

 

Imi place sa lucrez cu resturile textile ramase in urma finisarii marginilor unor lucrari sau pur si simplu diferite resturi textile. Ele ma inspira. Pot sa fac lucrari mai mici, ATC sau carduri textile.

I love working with textile waste left after finishing the edges of works, or simply different textile scrap. They inspire me. I can do smaller works, ATC or textile cards.

A little twinchie

Aseara m-am jucat un pic si am facut un mic twinchie, o miniatura textila de 5cmx5cm.
Pe masa de lucru aveam niste resturi pe care voiam sa le arunc, dar m-am razgandit. Le-am lipit pe o bucatica de textil si am aplicat niste cusaturi de sustinere.
Si a iesit acest obiect micut care imi place tare mult.

Last night I played a bit and I made a small twinchie, a textile miniature of 5cmx5cm.
On the worktable I had some leftovers that I wanted to throw, but I changed my mind. I glued them on a piece of fabric and I applied some stitching.
And as result this little item that I like very much.

Coaching...


Ce este coaching-ul, mai ales pentru arta textila? Coaching...in romaneste ar insemna indrumare, antrenare, conducerea cuiva spre ceva concret. Din site-urile americane am aflat ca, atunci cand pe o lucrare textila cosi un fir decorativ sau un snur pentru a realiza din asta o anume figura sau un desen, se zice ca faci coaching. Dar asta am aflat-o mult mai tarziu, dupa ce am folosit deja aceasta tehnica...fara sa stiu!! De cele mai multe ori intuitia sau inspiratia ne invata sa ne gasim tehnicile sau metodele cele mai adecvate pentru a face ceea ce vrem sau ne imaginam.
Prima data am folosit coaching-ul la realizarea unor carduri textile. La expozitia de patchwork si arta textila organizata la Craiova in 2010 de grupul Peticelul Romanesc, am cunoscut-o pe Petra. Petra ne-a daruit tuturor participantelor niste panglici minunate. Folosind astfel de panglici, am facut pentru inceput un card textil, care a ajuns la Petra si careia ii multumesc tare mult pentru ele. Am creat apoi si alte carduri la care am folosit pentru background aceste panglici. Insa mai voiam sa aplic ceva...si am aplicat niste fire prin coasere manuala ca sa realizez un anume desen...adica coaching. Dar la astfel de lucrare nu utilizezi numai o singura tehnica, desigur...am mai facut niste cusaturi free motion cu masina de cusut, am adaugat niste margele, putina pictura, applique si altele...

What is coaching, especially for textile art? Coaching ... in Romanian it means guidance, training, lead someone to something concrete.
First time I used coaching to achieve some textile cards. At Patchwork and Textile Art exhibition organized in Craiova in 2010, by the Romanian Patch group , I met Petra. Petra gave all the participants some wonderful ribbons. Using these ribbons, I made ​​a fabric card that went to Petra.Thank you very much Petra  for these ribbons. I created the other cards using ribbons. But I also wanted to apply something ... and I applied some threads by hand stitching to achieve a certain design ... that is coaching. But such work does not use only one technique, of course ... I did some free motion stitching with sewing machine, I added some beads, some painting, applique and more ...







Toate aceste carduri le-am daruit....

Apoi am aplicat aceeasi tehnica si la niste ATC-uri. In centrul acestor ATC-uri este aplicat un patratel textil, vopsit de mine cu o tehnica despre care voi vorbi altadata. Pe patratel am aplicat niste cusaturi free motion ca sa evidentiez patternul. La urma am adaugat firele si niste margelute. Imi place tare mult ce a iesit.

Avalon, soluvlies sau solufleece...


Avalon, Soluvlies sau Solufleece sunt denumiri comerciale pentru un material hidrosolubil foarte versatil. El se prezinta sub forma unei folii semitransparente, de consistenta destul de flexibila. Poate fi folosit in tehnicile textile ca stabilizator sau suport atunci cand se cos materiale mai speciale si dificil de cusut (dantela, tricot, matase, fire, catifea, etc.). In arta textila este utilizat si pentru a realiza compozitii sau texturi imbogatite cu diferite elemente decorative. Dupa coasere, folia hidrosolubila se dizolva in apa si dispare.
Eu am experimentat avalonul in ideea de a crea niste suprafete texturate pentru carduri textile. Am asezat intre doua folii de avalon diferite bucati de textil, fire etc., am facut apoi niste cusaturi normale la masina de cusut, dupa care prin spalare am indepartat avalonul.

Avalon, Soluvlies or Solufleece are names for a very versatile water-soluble material. He presents himself as a semi-transparent film with a very flexible consistency. In textile techniques are used as a stabilizer or support for special materials more difficult sewing (lace, knit, silk, yarn, velvet, and so on). It is used to make compositions and textures enriched with different decorative elements. After sewing, water-soluble film is dissolved in water and disappears.

I experienced Avalon in the idea of ​​creating some textured surfaces for textile cards. I sat between two sheets of Avalon various pieces of fabric, yarn and so on, then I did some sewing normal stitching, then I removed Avalon by washing.





 Aici am creat o "dantela", cusuta cu free motion intr-un spatiu decupat, de forma unei inimioare. M-a inspirat  Linda Matthew, o artista textila din SUA pe care o admir mult.  Este nevoie de multa atentie pentru ca sa se suprapuna cat mai multe "ochiuri". In caz contrar, toata munca se poate...desira.
