Alphabet rug


Dialogue between sources of inspiration and practitioner

The Alphabet Rug installation has been inspired by Auguste Herbin and Akseli Gallen–Kallela, and hand–tufted with mohair yarns. Brushed mohair resembles a soft expressionist painting. For Korolainen, sources of inspiration participate in the creative process – she is not really the one "making the artwork", but rather the work materializes through her.
