This is a companion piece to “Zero”, the embroidery inspired by the work of Anni Albers that I finished last summer.

Anni’s husband Josef did not work with fiber, but he admired the same Pre-Columbian textiles as his wife, and used them in his classes as examples of good design.  As with the first embroidery, I chose quotes to stitch as the background for the rest of the composition.

Josef was widely known and admired for his teaching as much as for his art.  Beginning at the Bauhaus, where he took over the basic design course, and continuing in the open and experimental atmosphere of Black Mountain College, Albers constantly refined an approach that emphasized “learning to see” as the basis for not only creating art, but all learning.  Most of his students at Black Mountain…

The beauty you see in me is a reflection of you & Benim içimde gördüğün güzellik senin güzelliğinin bir yansımasıdır.~ Rumi

Beautiful words from a beautiful person. Nice post post Semra.



I was born inside a never ending darkness
I saw the light, i got scared, I cried.
In time i learned to live with the light.
I saw the dark, i got scared,
Somedays I send off my friends to infinite darkness. I cried.

لقد ولدت في داخل ظلام غير متناهي
وعندما رايت النور ، أصابني الخوف وبكيتُ
ومع مرور الوقت تعلمت ان أعيش في النور
وعندما رايت الظلام مرة اخرى ، أرتعبت
وفي يوم ما، أرسلت أصدقائي الى ظلام بلا نهاية وعندها بكيت
مولانا جلال الدين الرومي

Sonsuz bir karanlığın içinden doğdum.
Işığı gördüm, korktum.Ağladım.
Zamanla ışıkta yaşamayı öğrendim.
Karanlığı gördüm, korktum.
Gün geldi sonsuz karanlığa uğurladım sevdiklerimi.Ağladım.
