Artist Of The Week: Erez Solo Rimon

img_0275

Erez Solo Rimon, ‘Piled 1′, 40 x 40 cm, hand knitted black mohair and silk threads, 2013

For Erez Solo Rimon knitting is a daily activity. It has been his form of expression since he was 15 years old. In his work, he examines the tensions between artistry and art, between the designer who produces knit products and the artist creating knit art. Rimon follows the relationship between the idea and the material – examining which one preceded the other – and how they influence the work of art itself. His works are mostly three dimensional and made from knit surfaces placed upon each other. Their size oscillates from small works hanging on a wall to outdoor massive installations knit with needles made of pipes. Rimon examines the relation of veiling and unveiling between the layers, the changing visibility, and the image of the work in its entirety.

Erez Solo Rimon was born in Tel Aviv, Israel, in 1984. He is a graduate of the Departmant of Textile Design at Shenkar College of Engineering and Design, Ramat Gan, Israel.
