Trapdoor Films proudly introduce Ayse Simsek who specializes in woven textile design. A rare treat to witness one of the few hand weavers in reality that use a hand loom.
Having recently graduated from the Royal College of Art with an MA in Textiles she creates handwoven one-off textile pieces for interior spaces; either as wall-hangings or for windows, and complex multi-directional yarn windings.
Ayse Simek explores ways of combining high contrasts together within a single piece of cloth. Using mostly linen and silk, she experiments with weaving techniques - both traditional and modern, that can allow these contrasts to work together in either subtle or more surprising ways; using gradating colours and textures, varying weight, opacity, and pattern.
The yarn windings are both a way for Ayse to express ideas for woven cloth, and to create intricate layered patterns that would not be possible to weave, as textile art pieces.
