Inga Blix
15 BOKSTAVER / 15 LETTERS

15 January - 15 February 2009

Welcome to exhibition opening on Thursday 15 January at 7PM

Inga Blix works with textile materials and techniques. She makes her own colour palette by dyeing fabric into a variation of colours, and from that palette she composes tapestries using appliqué technique sewn by hand.
Inga Blix uses letters and words as pictorial elements in her works. She is influenced by the way grafitti uses text as image, but also by the use of text as image in traditional textile art and tapestries.

Inga Blix is interested in the concept “Synestesi”: how different impressions connects with each other in our brain, like the way many people connects words with colours. The connection between colour, words and letters has been apparent to the artist since her childhood. This is a phenomenon with big individual variations that makes it interesting to work with, and she uses her thoughts and ideas around this concept as elements in her art.
Blix wishes to say something about the way textile materials plays an important part of our lives; for everyday use in clothes and blankets and as an important product in the global economy.

Inga Blix, born 1956, lives and works in Hamar. She graduated from The National College of Art in Bergen, diploma in textiles in 1983, and from California College of Arts in 1982. She has showed her works in Norway and abroad, and participated in several exhibitions in Japan with textiles in shibori technique. She has made several commissioned works and her art has been purchased by Arts Council Norway among others.
