This season, Monsieur Lacenaire pays tribute to the square.
And to the artist Josef Albers.
This German gentleman, from the Bauhaus design school, was the pioneer of optical art, in the 1920’s.
The designs, non-representational geometric shapes, create various types of optical illusion and may cause the eye to detect a sense of movement (eg. swelling, warping, flashing, vibration ...).
In painting, the artist use both positive and negative spaces to create the sens of mouvement, an illusion of depth and perspective.
Monsieur Lacenaire will use different stitch technics to reach this same effect.
This season focuses on geometric shapes and abstracts stories alive on many kind of quality yarns sourced in Italy and Peru.
Hope you like the squares!
