About this artwork

From the threads, as if from the rays of light, we can see the face of the modest and calm Japanese woman, share artists Ani and Andrew Abakumov. And yet, in comparison with the harsh chiaroscuro and the contours of a black-and-white photo, the image softens, erases, it falls into a cloud of timelessness, losing concreteness and turning into a mysterious vision.Ani and Andrew work together to create their signature series of fiber artworks. Andrew, a mathematician and programmer, developed an algorithm that creates a blueprint for each new piece. He also prepares each canvas by driving nails into the perimeter of the surface. Ani then strings different colored and sized thread layer upon layer, from hours to months until the image appears. She uses anywhere from 4 km to 20 km of the material for a single piece.
