Ximena Perez Grobet - Entrelíneas - Calligraphy and textures

Barcelona-based artist, Ximena Perez Grobet has focused her work in the art of calligraphy. After living in Japan for a year, Grobet has continued her development and interest in this ancient form and its application to art books. In Diario personal, one of her books, she developed a series of prints that focus on introspective topics that delve into the aspect of plasticity of letters and written forms. This being more focused on the meaning of the letter symbols, rather than what they abstractly represent. One of these designs is the theme in this hand knotted rug. The result at the rug’s scale, the calligraphy bursts out as a dominant force that is art onto itself.
