"The First Layer"
‘Lab O’ is a laboratory where recreations of canvases from paintings of
the Great Masters from the XVI th and XVII th century are woven on hand
Looking at an oil painting on canvas in a museum, our focus is on the image, the colours, the size and the frame around it.
Rarely we notice that the ‘First Layer’ is a woven cloth that can have its own texture.
In this exhibition you find recreations of the canvases that El Greco and Diego Velazquez used for their paintings. Included are contemporaneous experiences by Marta Pokojowczyk on these canvases: ‘INTERFERENCES’.
