Inspired by the latent language of rugs from Anatolia – especially the “Hands on Hips” motif charged with motherhood, fertility and abundance – Re-pose utilizes the non-verbal language of Anatolian patterns as a means to unburden one’s self through active introspection…
language without words,
voice without sound,
touch without presence.
Slow, soft, painful – however comforting, therapeutic and regenerating.
The motif provides the structure in which one rests both physically and emotionally. What seems simple on the surface hides a great truth: The care, intention, and labor of a mother. She weaves together the fundamentals of family.
Re-pose offers sanctuary for everyone to reflect and recharge by emphasizing the unifying strength of mothers and women.
