Sigrid Calon (1969) is a Dutch visual artist, who lives and works in Tilburg. She studied textiles at the Academy of Fine Arts in the same city. Her work balances between the thin line of applied and fine arts. She is interested in the language and autonomous value of textiles. In the identity of ‘things’.
This work, which is the form of a book, is a research to the graphic possibilities of a (embroidery) grid. To equal the intensity and craft of embroidery she is using the stencilling technique.
The RISO machine provides the quality of the screen printing process and is as practical in application as a photocopier. As a consequence, this gave her the opportunity to go further than the standard CMYK-printing. Hidden in the grid, there is magic and with 8 colours and 8 lines (stiches) she visualises a new world out of it.
