Gisèle Acker : ” When I started with traditional patchwork, I discovered that anything can be recycled. Used material, worthless objects, as long as somebody is interested in, can become a piece of art.This is why everyday objects become my main source of inspiration. I work only by instinct without following any rules in particular. I need to be close to the subject, enhance it and give it life. I like to play with colours, textures, as well as with volumes, without neglecting the importance of empty spaces and transparencies, giving so an impression of freedom to the materials I use.
Nothing pleases me more than to see the public interpreting my work according to its own criteria and imagination. This is my way of sharing my passion with people. I have recently published a book – l’Art Textile, Créations Contemporaines – Editions de Saxe – where you can discover my new creations as well as a lot of instructions to help you realize some of them. http://sites.estvideo.net/artstextiles68
