kaleidoscope

Designed , felted and hooked by Gun-Marie Nalsen 2021

Mix media: rug hooking and needle felting

Hand dyed wool roving on wool fabric, and wool strips, wool yarn on linen

Framed

14″ x 14″

This is a mix media piece. I started making 4″x4″ squares, some felted and some hooked, putting them on thick 4″x4″canvas, suddenly inspiration came and I put the together, I like the effect. It is like when you see in a kaleidoscope, colors in different shapes. My son Miguel made the frame, so now it is a piece to enter maybe in an exhibition, who knows. I enjoyed a lot working with the different textures.

The sea, the shore, always in my work, I really miss the sea! This came out like an unruly ocean, the water is of different tones, the wind blows…. I never know where they are going. Loved to make it!

One afternoon the sunset was so beautiful in the woods in our home, that I went directly to my studio and reproduced it. I think it is very accurate, but we cannot do better that nature! I found a cool metal frame, so that was it!

pueblo

Designed and woven by Gun-Marie Nalsen 2021

Tapestry

Wool yarn on cotton warp

8″ x 16″

Mounted on a stick

When I started weaving it I had no fixed idea of any design, only I had a bunch of yarn in different beautiful colors. So I started without any idea, and when it was finished, I realised that it looked like a small town, in the middle of nowhere, with small houses and streets in the middle. It is like a miracle in a way! That is why it is called Pueblo! It was so much fun to move my hands weaving, it is like a meditation.

neighborhood – vecindario

Rug hooking and needle felting

Hand dyed wool roving, hand dyed wool fabric , yarns and watercolors.

Framed

10″ x 10″

I saw a picture in a Swedish magazine of a neighborhood with yellow houses with shadows and the normal red house in the front, so I tried to make them up. I am quite happy with the result, it was fun to figure it out! Love the straight lines of the houses and the roofs, and I painted with watercolors the sky, just to make it more interesting!
