ABSTRACT
The article looks on the tapestries made by textile artist Marika Szaraz. The tapestries made by Szaraz are simple. She uses only black or white viscose in a weft-faced surface to create a variety of ingenious variations on the wedge weave. She is able to create shapes that break away from the rectilinear constraints of the loom by leaving some areas unwoven and pulling the warp ends. This irreverence for precepts has been the basis for Szaraz's work since the late 1970s. She often works with miniature prototypes and computer graphics to explore many more ideas and to imagine large commissions.
