Artist Information for Regula Affolter

My works are made of textile materials.

Different color concepts, the dyeing of cotton and silk fabrics by hand, various printing techniques and the processing of thread and material by stitching on the sewing machine build the basic of my work.

Geometric shapes, personal impressions or simply facts captured in a stylistic way and interpreted in the drawing game with the sewing machine, give the work statement and personel structure.

​Elementary principles such as design and realization connect with the components during the workflow.
