BlackStar 1-180

By danish textile artist Vibeke Rohland

Rohland takes an intuitive and emphatically low-tech, hands-on approach that may be seen as a reconciliation of the practices of artisanry and art. In 2000, she embarked on the BlackStar project which riffs on her signature plus sign in offset layers that are rendered in multiple overlapping colors to form a blunt star. How many colors and displacements can Rohland execute before the paper dissolves under the pigment or a black star emerges? Through this prolonged color study, she tests the limits of her materials and her media, and uses repetition, abstraction and variation to reveal the emotional power inherent in color combinations and in seemingly slight degrees of difference. BlackStar is an ongoing project, and like all of Rohland’s work, a meditation on some of the most basic elements that make up our material world.
