London-based artist Ethan Caflisch has established a certain level of comfort in continuing his well known textile series. However, with that comfort of knowing what mistakes to avoid, comes the urge to expand - to start a new piece and intentionally creating chaos in order to fix it. To find it's subtle and carefully thought-out alchemy. No matter how comfortable you are with a process, a composition or a skill, the discovery of something new is always the most fulfilling.

The series can be described in the artists own words: ‘a revisitation to a place i know and have shaped but isn’t how i left it. the punctures from top to bottom bond and hide. the initial carelessness from sprinting is what now requires surgery. there is still a view through the glass, or maybe it’s open, who knows anymore. the horizontal rarely changes at a distance, it’s the vertical that disrupts; although the force applied to ‘make it work’ messes with that line a bit.
the things that keep me going now are the importance of the material, and saving it, preserving it, presenting it’

“...still constantly remind myself of H.D. Thoreau’s quote “rather than love, than money, than fame; give me truth.” I think this is a crucial mentality to have as an artist, and any other profession; that success, by any definition, will be found in making honest work.”

EVA CHEN ON ETHAN CAFLISCH

“...WE WERE REALLY LOOKING FOR PIECES THAT SPOKE TO US AND MADE US PAUSE FOR A MOMENT TO ABSORB, APPRECIATE, AND REFLECT. CAFLISCH'S ART ABSOLUTELY HAD THAT EFFECT ON US.”
