Jan Gailans – woven pictures

Jan creates her artworks by weaving paper. It’s an unusual art form, so how did it all start?

For many years, Jan was a freelance photographer with a passion for creating abstract images. One day, she found some discarded test prints and had the idea of slicing them up to create something new. Her love of colour and texture led her to explore the possibilities of combining different images by weaving the sliced strips together. The result was these distinctive, intriguing paper weavings.
