Calligraphy & Textiles

“…we are surfaces and surfaces are us. (Joseph A. Amato)
The surfaces represent points of connection and interaction between the body, things and the world. The surfaces are where the action is. They transmit sounds, and smells provide touch and feel, form perceptions: they attract attention, excite expectations and stimulate urges. It arouse our curiosity and even our state of concentration, reveal and see things….”

“My main interest in textiles lies in the personal stories that they can reveal, in the search for that reciprocity between the texturality of the written signs and materiality, at the intersection between text and texture …” (Cristina Mocan, text artist & founder Arcasha)

“..rhythm, regular strokes, austere punctuation of in-significant and repeated engravings all intervened in the origins of art and writing. Signs, spaces, were the rythms, not shapes. The abstract lies at the origin of graphism, writing at the origins of art.” (Roland Barthes, Variations on writing.)

“calligraphy is the art of artistic writing. It is much more than the craft of setting the letters in the right way. To me it means to create artwork from language. The meaning of lyrics and words transforms in the pictures and objects that I create, becoming a composition of color, shape, material and written marks.” (Brigit Nass)

“The world is no more than a harmony of tensions” (Heraclitus)

“You need to become friend with the writing tool, whether it is a conventional or a craft one. They can be more daring, more friendly, more enjoyable or more challenging. It’s a dance, a dance on paper with your pen and ink … On a classical dance scene only the energetic expression of the two on the floor remains, here is the touch that stay… The fascination of the black cough … giving thin, interrupted, unobtrusive or on the contrary continuous, coarse, greedy of substance … It is in fact the one that allows the final phase of materialization of the neuronal expression of the gesture. Without that I practically scrap the paper … The dynamics of the movement would remain invisible …”(Ana Sănduța – Orthodontist & Personal Development Coach, participant at some of our calligraphic workshops)
