Endless “mossy glades” became a source of inspiration for the 2015 amazing modern art piece “Tundra” by famous Petersburg artists Elena Tkachenko and Galina Domakha.
The previously dominated shades of green, grass, laurel, yellow and ocher are replaced by terracotta and scarlet flashes. Another second – and the Tundra will be transformed into a hymn to the crimson.
Abstract color patches are woven from woolen, cotton metal threads, as well as viscose, acrylic, polyamide and micro polyester. When creating a tapestry different types of weaving are used: carpet pile, tapestry and author's technique that resembles bulk embroidery. Thanks to the use of not only finished, but also unique, manually twisted threads of different textures a play of the relief is born.
The Tundra" of Elena Tkachenko and Galina Domakha " is able to fill in all the space without losing artistic qualities. Squares can lie on a horizontal floor surface, either hang from the ceiling or on the wall creating a completely abstract piece.
