Tammy Kanat's "A Woven Metaphor" represents a distinct association of Tammy's thoughts and experiences expressed in her woven works. Focussing on energy and movement, each abstract piece contrasts high piles and flat weaves comprise of thousands of knots that Tammy Kanat composes without a preconceived plan. "I often think of my weavings as a novel, as I work on a piece one chapter at a time until I finish it. Not knowing what the end will be keeps me driven and engaged. I have been creating more intricate woven shapes, inspired by surroundings and nature, I have become more engaged and curious about the slow detail process of weaving, experimenting with one knot at a time."
In her most recent body of work, Kanat utilises more angled frames with vibrant gradients radiating outward. A dark centre which evolves gradually to a lightness on the outside providing relief, she shares. "The works are a juxtaposition of complexity and simplicity".
Tammy Kanat's work is collected globally including the National Gallery of Victoria.
