the TEXTILE ART and DESIGN by RANDI SAMSONSEN

I am a textile artist and designer. I graduated from Designskolen Kolding in 2012. In the beginning of this blog you can follow my master project.
Newer work shown are more recent explanations of my present work and the process around this.
In my master project I started out looking at the wonderful paintings by Kathrine Ærtebjerg. I became inspired to create a collection of knitwear. The collection is called "Den konstante duft af sucker…" meaning "The constant scent of sugar…"

The work is a soft tactile comment to the political leader on the Faroe Islands. The text “og eg havi aldrin” meaning “and I have never”. “Hetta er bara piparnøtur” is the same expression as “It’s just peanuts”. These are quotes from his rhetoric when talking about economics and responsibility.

Ready to display. Detail of work that will be showed at the annual ÓLAVSØKUFRAMSÝNINGINA 2014 late this month. The embroidery is reading the text “and I have never” repeatedly . A comment to the comment the local prime minister made in a matter where he indeed had done it wrongly.
