'The War on Rugs' by Thomas Renwart

About 12 years ago, I received a package from an art collector from New York. It was a hand-woven Afghan rug. While being a symbol of domesticity and coziness, the rug was depicting tanks, helicopters, kalashnikovs and mortar grenades. War literally has become a motive in Afghanistan, where generation after generation has been growing up with war.

The rugs of Thomas Renwart are also revealing a paradox. The Victorian embroidering looks idyllic and charming. But when reading the quotes more closely, we start feeling uneasy, because we cannot avoid reflecting on our own lives.

As a contemporary Mozart, Thomas is serving a plate full of heaviness, topped with a sauce of lightness and humour. He does not care about trends and fashion. This old soul in a young body has created a unique language in textile. In a cryptic way, he speaks about his complex and troubled universe, where beauty will always prevail.

But then again, a neon sign is saying ‘Whatever’.

Enjoy your meal.
