16 Dec Indigo Textile Sculptures by Norwegian Artist Hanne Friis

The world of indigo textile art is rich and versatile. We’ve reported earlier about Japanese Artists working with indigo like Hiroyuki Shindo. This time we want to take a look at a European modern artist that impresses with her breath taking textile sculptures!

Oslo, Norway based artist Hanne Friis creates large textile installations in which she manipulates fabric through stitching, smocking, and other types of layering methods. Frii’s hand built three-dimensional organic landscapes are crafted from various textiles, creating a tempting deepness.

Besides other textiles she uses denim as a main material in her large layered installations, each unique and representative of the human experience, as every minute detail in the work is created by hand.

Have a look at her sculptures reflecting the great beauty of indigo textiles!
