Wool Rug Artworks Simulate Rolling Pastures and Mossy Textures

Using pieces leftover thread from her family’s carpet factory in Buenos Aires, artist Alexandra Kehayoglou embarks on a difficult hand-tufting process to fabricate wool carpets and rugs that simulate natural textures like moss, water, trees, and pastures. The carpets scale form and function and can actually transform a whole room into a lush meadow dotted with pools of water and clumps of grass. Many of her rugs even perform as part tapestry and flow from walls to a floor, or work as covers for chairs or stools.
