Maria Loizidou’s series of hand-knitted sculptural works are made of stainless steel and metallic thread that negotiate the strength of fragility by focusing on hand crafted works. The dynamic presence of the works, which are inspired by traditional crochet patterns of the Mediterranean, addresses the viewer’s sensory perception rather than any cognitive experience. The technique of the hand-knitted construction and the hammered forms reflect the ethereal quality of the artworks, while projecting a timeless inner strength.
