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 threads of a dozen of the most delicate colors and shades from pearl gray, periwinkle, light ocher, fawn, ivory, lettuce, mint, pistachio, olive are framed by dark marsh, brown young shoots make their way through the frozen ground.
The Spring is upon us.
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.
