About this artwork

Here is an Italian girl of the early 20th century, says artists Ani and Andrew Abakumov. By combining countless lines of different colors, the details are blurred and it loses its physicality. Now we can admire not an ordinary thoughtful young girl from the forgotten past, but a pure hypnotic spirit that becomes an essence of her.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.
