Complex Simplicity
2014—2017

Materials + Technique

Silks, Cottons, Linens
Hand-stitched fabric construction

Complex Simplicity is a double-sided wall of hundreds of white blocks hand-stitched together in a regular geometric order. Made from a variety of woven fabrics, the white and translucent subtle hues enhance the work’s complexity, whilst creating a delicate and sensitive surface of light, shadow and reflection.

Complex Simplicity is part of a series of mathematically inspired works handmade by Deepa Panchamia. Started in 2014, new blocks have regularly been added to the structure, to create an elongated wall.
