May Meeting - Bauhaus (5)


Helga: Die Arbeiten von Anni Albers, die mit ihrem Mann Josef Albers am Bauhaus in Dessau gewirkt hat, haben mich zu diesen Quilts inspiriert. Während er hauptsächlich in der Architektur und Malerei tätig war, hat sich Anni Albers mit Textilien, Webereien und Wandbehängen beschäftigt. Mir gefallen an ihren Werken besonders die einfachen Formen und dezente Farben.

Helga: The inspiration for these quilts came from the works of Anni Albers, who was an active member of the Bauhaus School of Design in Dessau together with her husband Josef. While his specialities were architecture and art, Anni's focus was textile design, weaving and wallhangings. What appeals to me most about her work is the simple shapes and subdued colours.
