Zetta Kanta’s fibre art brings an instant feeling of warmth to a space. High Country Sunrise is no exception, which has a sense of luxe thanks to its grand size and tactile appeal. The image is beautiful and serene but for me it’s the unusual media that stands out. This artwork showcases various textures, layers and earthen tones, making it an interior dream piece! Fibre art is extremely popular as it brings warmth and old-world charm to contemporary spaces which, without the right artwork, can feel cold and bare. High Country Sunrise features beautiful earthen colours, deluxe textures and soothing fibres that are naturally alluring. I’d feature this work as both the key soft furnishing and artwork to highlight its soft yet complex textures. I imagine it on a white or warm grey-toned wall, contrasted with hard and polished surfaces.

FAIR DIRECTOR, The Other Art Fair

I am instantly drawn to this work by fibre artist Zetta Kanta. It’s unique in contrast – bold in size and colour yet portrays a landscape that I find quite soothing. The rolling hills mirror the rolling edges of the material – a lovely detail that lends to the calm, tranquil feeling. There is also a sense of something bigger within the work; something out of our control, which I find very intriguing. This is a strong piece that needs a space to do it justice – a large, contemporary boardroom perhaps.
