My name is Rajasi Patil and I’m a textile artist. My interests lie in experimenting with unconventional materials and processes on the loom to achieve striking surface effects and textures. I gravitate towards textiles because it, conceptually and practically, allows me to meditate on their fragility as a form. I approach my work with an attitude towards making, that is very process led, learning by doing. I intend to continue my practise by pushing/ exploring the boundaries of the traditional craft, studying its historical and cultural significance. Textiles are a huge part of our daily lives, and I believe understanding the various processes and learning about the rich history of textiles in our country, is crucial for every maker and consumer, especially in todays world, helping us contemplate and regain sensitivity towards our surroundings.
