Compelling Interlace Colours
This is an era of rapidly evolving technologies often driven by the digital along with advances in material science and processes. The digital technology adopted in weaving industry has greatly enhanced production efficiency. However, we have compromised many artistic and colour values in weaving as the application of yarn colours is restricted by the performance characteristics of existing electronic Jacquard machinery.
We have been exploring the physiological optical illusion of juxtaposed primary-coloured yarns to overcome the current limitations in woven textile coloration. Over the last 10 years extensive weaving experiments have been conducted to examine various colour theories to introduce woven colour effects we have never seen before. Novel weaving methods have been developed through applying varied colour theories and digital image processing.
Through this exhibition, we introduce the first kind woven Jacquard textile designs that encompass colour, material, and texture initiation to make a valuable contribution to change and improve current woven textile coloration and design methods.
