Tinc · tus /tinc-tūs/ (tincta, neuter tinctum); first/second declension. 1. color/dye. | 2. treated, tinge and tint | 3. moisten/soak and absorb
Tinctus investigates the various ways in which a selection of artists reinterprets traditions of natural dyeing in their contemporary art practices. The experiences of material gatherings, pigment absorption, color associations and object manifestation, within natural dyeing are revisited and re-ritualized in creation of new significance to one self, the maker. These translations includes ikat weavings morphed into glitched imagery, to explorations of rust imprints as object remnants. Through this shared space Tinctus allows a re-dying of the coming from.
“The life so short, the crafts so long to learn”
— Geoffrey Chaucer
