Description

For years, I have collected wood material from nations that have been colonized by European powers. The motive for this tapestry comes from a painted Pau brazil tree.

After being first discovered in 1500 by Portuguese explorers, the trees and their wood became highly coveted and traded throughout Europe for the red dye they produced. Considered a valuable commodity, it was the preferred red dye of luxury textile manufacturers. The species has been exploited by collectors, known as brasileiros. It also provides an immensely valuable, and almost indestructible, timber used to manufacture bows for stringed instruments, for construction, and to make traditional hunting tools. The extensive collection and export of the dyewood from Pau brazil trees has resulted in the loss of large areas of forest and the enslavement of local people.

The tapestry is woven by a digital jacquard technique that gives me the possibility to experiment with yarns, colours, and texture.
