Catalogue Note

"The thread spiraling into form, in unison with blood and stars, the great wind of earth, the loom of orbit, the wrangle of root and branch. As the eye's music, it was more than consonance of rhythms and the poetry of analogies. Because it embodies ideas and sentiments rather than simply represent or reflect on them, weaving became a wholeness that in turn was a model for the possible wholeness, or continuity, of world and mind."  Ricardo Pau-Llosa, "The Eye's Music of the Emergence of the Thaumaturgical Object," in Olga de Amaral: The Mantle of Memory, Paris 2013, p. 115
