Looking at Constance Tenvik and the way she is portraying the people she meets – or these days – doesn’t meet - you immediately get a connection, just as if you were there yourself.
With Opera Goers, she paints a motif resembling colorful squiggles from afar, but it depicts rows of faces gazing in concentration. The faces are part of an audience witnessing a Gesamtkunstwerk.
“The individuals with their extended eyes, noses and hair could be continuing upwards like a never-ending beanstalk or a spiral staircase. The motif doesn’t necessarily end at the edges of the rug, but implies a larger universe.”
With this collaborative collection, the function is at the core, the rug will by its design create warmth and softness. But it also has another dimension – inviting art and the appreciation of art – into your home.
