Amazing book, which has res “veins”
The feel of a physical book is crucial for many people. Rima Day, a fibre artist, has created a beautiful collection of fabric creations that mixes her passion for reading and environment. The silky, transparent pages of these hand-bound pieces of art are decorated with creative red tendrils that sprawl across the covers and flow out from beneath the black covers.
„I have always enjoyed reading books and turning the pages with my hands. I decided to include a „book“ form in my work because of this, Day informs My Modern Met. „With regard to the forms I create in those books, I was fascinated by how alike environment and the physical figure are. I came to the conclusion that blood vessels mimic root networks and tree limbs as I was roaming through environment. She adds, „I wished to produce the form.
Another key element of the series that connects to Day’s Japanese culture is the selection of red thread. She explains that red thread is frequently used in Japanese best of luck bracelets and serves as a sign of social touch. Senninbari, which translates literally to „1000 people stitching,“ is the name for these bracelets. Before offering a piece of cloth to a warrior as security, Japanese ladies would customarily embroider it 1,000 times. Day says, „The action of sewing becomes meditation.“ „This idea struck a chord with me.“
The Tennessee State Gallery is where you can see Day’s artwork in person, and her Etsy site is where you can buy new artwork. Additionally, by joining the artist on Insta, you may stay up to speed with her most recent works.
Extraordinary fabric books are made by Tennessee-born artist Rima Day and adorned with red string strands that resemble veins.
Day was established in Japanese culture, where the red thread represents a connection to others.
