Recollection is my second fabric collection for Art Gallery fabrics. With this line, Iâ€™ve tried to somehow evoke the old, fundamental textile techniques from rug weaving, tapestry, knitting, crocheting, embroidery, ikat.....something that through the centuries was passed from generation to the generation, recollected - becoming a legacy or heritage that made our history and a history of the modern craftwork. I must say that what helped with the textile techniques inspiration, were my classes during the first year of my PhD. I had the pleasure to be introduced to some of these techniques by my professor and hers assistant at the Faculty of Applied Arts in Belgrade and to learn a bit about the process of loom weaving. I have always been attracted to doilies, laces and other vintage lovelies. I enjoy using them in artwork and like to contrast them with modern elements and materials in order to create something that embodies both fresh and vintage. Also, doilies hold a special place in Serbian tradition and culture, such as in traditional costumes which utilize various kinds of lace embellishments. I was also inspired by kilims, which are the gorgeous shapes and patterns of Pirot, the southern part of Serbia. Kilims are very geometric in form and in combination with floral lacy motifs and shapes create the perfect harmony for my â€œRecollectionâ€? line. Culturally and historically, kilims are also used in very intricate needlepoint tapestries with beautiful roses. These have also inspired me to design some of the prints.
