    About The Artwork

    Made from hand knotted jute, wool and metallic thread, this limited edition Enrico David rug is produced to-order by artisanal rug-maker Christopher Farr. The design is based on an original drawing, which David saw as the representation of a volcanic range as seen from above. David wanted the rug to reflect the original hand-drawn qualities as much as possible - the textural and chromatic elements of the design, the irregular nature of the lines, and its positioning on ‘the page’. David works in painting, drawing, sculpture and installation, often employing traditional craft techniques. In the 1990s he garnered acclaim for creating monumental embroidered portraits using sewn canvases, which often began as drawings and collages from fashion magazines. Over the past several years Enrico has focused on sculpture in a variety of media and has also returned to more traditional methods of painting. Each rug comes with an individually numbered label on the reverse. This edition has been made especially on the occasion of Studio Voltaire's 30th Anniversary. Throughout the anniversary year, a series of limited editions by leading international artists will be released to raise important funds for Studio Voltaire's artistic and community programmes.
