Flagmented is a series of works that integrates traditional fabrics from two diverse cultures, the European and the Chinese, blending them to form a single textile. Flagmented represents a possible future able to surpass normal cultural borders and expressions. Classical European embroidery and Toile de Jouy are coupled with traditional Chinese fabrics forming unique pieces that stitch together the two diverse realities. The unexpected results mark a new era of globalisation becoming the flags of a new hybrid culture.
All pieces are unique and made to the dimensions of 90 cm x 190 cm.

Painting surfaces are constantly multi-layered and renewed. This process-orientated method of constant re- defining allows a subject’s essence to reveal itself in its own time.
