Possibly my favourite work from the whole fascinating Anni Albers exhibition just opened at Tate Modern - the subtle play of colours of this ‘Development in Rose II’ from 1952 is utterly compelling.
Anni Albers fused the ancient craft of weaving with modern art. Inspired by the unprejudiced attitude towards materials and their inherent properties she found at the radical Bauhaus art school in Weimar where she studied, she explored the possibilities of weaving as a medium for modernist art.
The fabulous play of light on ‘Epitaph’ 1964;
From Aztec to Celtic, human minds and eyes continually drawn to intertwined shapes - Study for a Nylon Rug’, 1959;
The haptic textures created by innovative technique - ‘Under Way’ 1964;
Unlocking the phenomenal potential power of textiles - ‘Wall Covering for an Auditorium’, Albers’ Bauhaus Diploma piece 1930 - the black and white threads on the front were interwoven with transparent cellophane, creating a metallic appearance which reflects the light in the windowless auditorium; on the back chenille creates a velvet-like surface that muffles sound;
‘Knot Drawing’ date unknown;
Bravo Tate - half the pleasure of textiles is touch;
Never a dull day at Tate.
