Gudrun Pagter has been weaving since graduating from the Design School Kolding, Denmark in 1975. Gudrun’s minimal tapestries explore, and play with, perspective and three-dimensional space.
'Throughout the years my compositions have become simpler and simpler. I do not look for a specific pictorial motif; my compositions are abstract not specific. The image is what you see and experience. With few lines or a single line, it is possible to transform a two-dimensional plane into a three-dimensional space, and it's interesting... I use lines and shapes to achieve a tension and a spatial effect, with inspiration drawn from architecture.' - Gudrun Pagter
