‘Shade’ by Ana Popescu x Dare to Rug is a collection of 4 colourful graphic rugs hand-tufted with New Zealand wool and bamboo silk. All rug designs are created by visual artist Ana Popescu and produced by Dare to Rug.
The rug models derive from 4 acrylic drawings part of Ana Popescu’s ‘Shade’ series, which explores the connection between light and space. The works stemmed from the interest in how light and shade can transform different scenes into something new.
To better translate the shades in the rug designs, the models are crafted with bamboo silk insertions that create depth and movement.
Ana Popescu is a visual artist based in Vienna, Austria who mainly draws and paints with colours and deals with the theme of space in her artwork.
