Inspired by the ropes that wash ashore along the British Columbia coastline, and the way their fibres unravel with weather and time, Kaija Rautiainen wove “Distant Passage”, a cropped and magnified view of an abstracted rope shape. The dramatic scale of this tapestry enhances the weightiness of this elegant rope.
