Twisting long strips of paper into thin string-like rolls, artist Gunjan Aylawadi (previously) begins a long process of weaving and layering to create designs inspired in part by the geometry, architecture and arabesque patterns found in her native India. Now based in Sydney, the computer science engineer turned self-taught artist has produced a new body of work titled Place for Prayer inspired by her own search for incorporating “personal meditative contemplation” into her life. The pieces will be on view at the Koskela gallery space starting June 24th, 2017. You can follow more of her work with paper on Instagram. (via Hi-Fructose)
