New Design for the Classic Kerman Rug
Martí Guixé has breathed new life into the classic Kerman rug, recreating the mythical pictorial motifs of birds, flowers, horses and deer that appear and disappear…like ghosts. Ghost is a rug that plays with shadows in black and white, a mysterious and brilliant blend of past and present that remains faithful to the strange simplicity and seriousness of the artist’s work. The noise and saturation of the design put a modern spin on the traditional rug, drawing us into the exuberance of the scene, so timeless and yet so fresh.
“I worked on a small part each day, sometimes painting during the day and sometimes at night… the graphic arrhythmias reflect my different moods over a period of three months of work and give Ghost a touch of mysticism.” Martí Guixé.
