Torunn P. Dagsland is Associate Professor, (fil.dr.), at the University of Stavanger, Faculty of Arts and Education, Norway. In her own creative arts she works with weaving, embroidery, fabric printing, photo and mixed media (plastics, paper, metal, acrylic paint, patina and textile). She works with pictures, sculpture and various interior fabrics. In her Artist’s Statement she describes how the tapestry can be put into a decorative textile handcraft tradition as well as into a narrative contemporary context. Using the materials, techniques, lines, ancient Sami symbols and colours, the tapestry tells stories.
