CELIA HADELER | ART RUGS
My work consists of contradictions and contrast. Being of both Peruvian and German descent, I am a product of contrasting cultures myself: from a Peruvian grandmother littering me with hugs and stuffed animals, to a reserved German grandfather teaching me the merits of discipline.
My fascination with contrast developed further when I started suffering heavy migraine seizures, forcing me to deal with contrasting extremities. As a coping mechanism, looking for ways to give me peace and quiet, I started making collages, cutting out and focusing on the folds, structures and shapes in the fashion magazines. During my art studies at the Willem de Kooning Academie in Rotterdam
and the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague, I have further developed this taste for combining old & new techniques. For my first design series ‘Folds’ I have made use of the classic ‘trompe l’oeil’ technique, using realistic imagery to create an optical illusion, resulting in a series combining design, art and functionality. My series ‘Folds’ has recently been presented for the first time at the design fair ‘Object’ in Rotterdam.
WRINKLES AND FOLDS... they are everywhere: a napkin on the table, the clothing you wear, or a bag floating in the wind. It draws my attention, it makes me curious and I get lost in them: the unexpected compositions and the simple beauty of random folds. I isolate these pure forms and translate them into my rugs. My new series of Rugs & Wall Hangings are inspired by folds and wrinkles. They are colourful and work as a trompe l’oeil, they are an absolute eye-catcher. I see people walking around them looking at them from different angles, they are surprised and hesitate to step on the rug. But eventually they will. My rugs are special with irregular edges. I play with their multifunctional use: you either hang them on your wall or use them as floor covering. Whatever your choice, this piece of art will enrich your interior.
