Bianca Pratorius explores pattern, sculpture, and repetition through simple yet labor-intensive processes. Her work arises out of the desire to organize and secure her reality. She continuously investigates different materials for their structural and tactile potential. The wool felt material themselves are essentially simple even unremarkable when viewed in their raw state, but lend themselves beautifully to repetition and expansion, thus becoming the perfect counterbalance to the structures she creates with them.
