Beside her activity as a classic graphic designer the Zurich based Trix Barmettler also realises graphics and illustrations within architectural context under her label Raumgrafik. Her complex interventions in the form of unique wall decorations or textile designs reflect the increasing demand of individual living. This beautiful and highly symbolic figure ‘Piece of Mind’ is her most recent project.
Here is what Trix Barmettler explains:
‘Piece of Mind’ or ‘Peace of Mind’?
This art project features both. A monotone graphic sequence forms a circle, similar to a yantra (an Indian ritualistic diagram, which is based on a sacred geometric form and is used for meditation).
Attempting to stay with this kind of loose treatment, a shape emerges from lots of small, round black stickers. The image, through the concentration and configuration of the black dots, has a three-dimensional aspect to it in places, visible on both micro and macro levels.
