Hernan Bas’ tapestry intricately weaves his subject of desire into an object of luxurious decadence. Drawing reference from the narrative regalia of medieval wall hangings, his carpet transfers the expressionist elegance of his paintings to stylised stitch work. Woven in bright colours, Bas’ mythological scene presents both a contemporary and timeless apotheosis. The acid hues and pixellated texture replicate the virtuality of television or digital imaging, while his antique process echoes the intimacy of heartfelt endeavour. In creating a functional object rather than a painterly illusion, Bas incorporates a more complex dimension to his opulent fantasies. His tapestry facilitates lifestyle embellishment and role-play fetishism.
