The rug “Reflecting Blue” from the series “Coloured Wooden Rugs” brings together the subtle texture of thin wood veneer on textile backing with the rippling, shifting colours of individual triangular paillettes. By introducing colour to her “Wooden Textiles”, Elisa Strozyk has created a stunningly unusual effect which serves to enhance the abstraction of wood as a material, while referencing the colourful patterns of classic carpets. Over 5,000 tiny wooden triangles were laser-cut from wood veneer and finished in different colours before being bonded to the textile underlay by hand. These tiny triangles allow the rug to be draped in sculptural shapes, lending the work a powerfully tactile quality.
