Grethe Wittrock is one of Denmark's most talented and internationally renowned fiber artist. Grethe: "In my works I aim to combine rawness with poetry. My approach is to show respect to the raw material's energy by distilling it to reveal its essence. Paradoxically, it is very time consuming to make the works appear simplistically beautiful. However, by using ancient techniques to create contemporary works, I practice a meditative process of repetition that allows me to create simple, strong, poetic works of art. For instance, I have hand weaved, knotted and braided thousands of strings of silk, gold, nylon and paper yarn for my wall-hangings."
