“absolutetapestry” is an internet gallery presenting Norwegian tapestry art. The gallery contains some short texts that throw light on Norwegian tapestry art from a number of angles. In order to show the long line of unbroken tradition, there is an article on history. The website’s emphasis is nevertheless on modern tapestry work.
The authors have been given free rein to approach the subject as they see fit. Rather than present just a few artists we have preferred to give a cross-section of what is happening in this art form today.
It is our hope that this collection will stimulate interest for tapestry art in ways that might lead to exhibitions, commissions and increased recruitment to this form of expression. Tapestry art is a very time-consuming medium. “absolutetapestry” gives the public a unique opportunity to view the work of many very different artists.
All in all, this website represents several hundred years of contemporary art.
