Love & Hate

Written by Valentina on . Posted in art

Love & Hate’ by Nifer Fahrion of NifNaks is a triptych of three full scale weapons rendered in wool felt:

“I spent hours upon hours stabbing the wool, watching as it compacted and distorted. Then I added more wool, continuing to stab and watch it form in unpredictable ways, and continued again… With such an intense focus with the intention of recreating these weapons realistically, I became intimately familiar with the objects. I was fully present in the experience of observing the subject of my gaze. Thus, these sculptures become only the documentation of my mindful meditation on them.”
