“Kustaa designs surreal wool tapestries for his Hypnopompic exhibition. The designs take inspiration from the state of sensory confusion that exists between sleep and wakefulness, using the visual delusions experienced during this strange period of consciousness to inspire a set of intricate psychedelic tapestries, busy with distorted flora and fauna and ominous looking creatures.” From Hugo and Marie

The following images are taken from http://www.hugoandmarie.com. It was interesting to see the tapestries in full colour, as the presentation of the work in the exhibition at the Tilberg Textiel Museum was very different. The works were hung in a dimly lit space, enhancing the dream-like nature of the inspiration. The exhibition presentation developed the works atmospheric and mysterious aura.
