Welcome to Artist Professor, Textile Artist Merja Keskinen´s New Website

The completely revamped website showcases the artist’s textile artwork extensively. The works, made with the weaving technique developed by the artist herself, glow in vibrant colors. Artwork images and pictures of details give the viewer access to the world of threads.

Merja Keskinen’s works consist of parts of different colors and sizes, where the threads criss-cross like a plain weave. The parts are made without looms around different frames. The works are based on considerations of color theory and a systematic way of working. In the works, an abundance of shades of color arises from combinations of several yarns in variety of colors and the optical mixing of colors. The artist executes her work with an incredibly fine color eye, a single work can have hundreds of different shades of color.
