The teacher

The dyeing of fabrics is an initial and fundamental part of Cecilia Koppmann's creative process. It is the moment to unfold scales, ranges, shades.
Then she cuts, discards, arranges, gathers, opposes, separates, sews in an improvised and almost frantic way. She looks for the exact tone, so that the scraps are like the brushstrokes of a canvas.
From there the process slows down: she arranges, relocates, rotates, turns the pieces until she finds the result.
The themes of her works are related to moments in her life: interests and emerging situations. Many were inspired by mathematical or geometric logics: successions, movement, gradings, geometric modules and repetitions.
Others are related to the healing dimension of the work she does: diseases and pandemics set in motion powerful and inspiring processes for her and for others. It is a great joy to gather and share different paths and approaches to textile work.
