[Hand-woven wool and cotton tapestry, wood artist's frames]

Ongoing series interpreting analog travel photographs into semi-abstract woven tapestries. Seeking pattern, form, composition, and colour-blocking in cities around the world, Borowska continues to amass an archive of 35mm photographs with characteristic cropping, and urban architectural subject-matter. Simplified into areass of colour and pattern, they are then re-complicated into another form and thickness through tapestry-weave. This ancient technique is intimate to the maker, whose fingers grasp each centimetre of yarn, and pick up each weft thread hundreds of times, creating a flexible matrix of imagery and texture.

Photographs by Kyle Berger.
