As an visual artist Jan Koen Lomans is working on textile art forms at the Dutch Textile Museum. New techniques and machinery inspire him to find new ways to use old crafts in art.
In one of his researches on using fabric, it resulted in a melted work. This process starts from a drawing or etch and is translated on polyester fabric by using a laser Graphixscan 50 watt. Through lasering the entire surrounding of the drawing the polyester gets a new organic structure.
The melting works are a form of art and could be interesting for architects and art related projects. At this moment the sizes of the artworks at the gallery are 23 x 29 cm. The maximum size at the moment is 50 x 50 cm.
