Mirka Knaster


 I am drawn to the clean simplicity of stitched or calligraphic lines. There is a spacious elegance in the minimalism of black and white, to which I always add a touch of red. I even wear clothing and jewelry that combine red, black, and white. While I am not a literalist and do not create representational work, the lines and shapes in these pieces offer a launching point from which any viewer's imagination can take flight. Whether stitching faster by machine or slower by hand, I find that the repetitive and rhythmic process of making marks and creating texture becomes a kind of meditation.
