“Passage” tapestry by Anna Kocherovsky
“Floating” tapestry by Anna Kocherovsky
Educated at Moscow’s School of Visual Art, I turned to hand-woven tapestries in the search of a fresh visual language and a distinct process I could call my own.
Resident of Michigan from 1989, I am working as a studio artist, designing and weaving tapestries. From that time, I exhibited my work in the numerous shows in Michigan and as well nationally. I also participated in the special projects, such as “Inaugural Lady Liberty Project” for ACLU of Michigan (2006) Detroit, Memorial Tapestry (2003), Purim Flag for the JCC in Manhattan, NY (2002) and completed several commissions.
My work is soft, quiet and reflective. I am very much interested in mythology, especially Jewish mythology and traditions; because it is very vivid and reflects who I am. I love to read and often it gives a starting impulse for the new work.
Artist's Statement: When exploring the theme for my new tapestry, I produce numerous drawings to experiment and clarify the idea for the new work. I enjoy the energy and spontaneity of process of drawing and want to carry the same element of excitement in my tapestries.
