Cos Ahmet

Artist / Maker

Southport, Lancashire


woven tapestry, sculpture/object, mixed media


£425 — £2500


Cos Ahmet’s practice is made up of a range of disciplines that include: woven tapestry, works on paper, and sculpture/object making. Shaped by his use of metaphor, body & self become symbolised through various interlinks where body & material respond with each other.

"My interest in the textile medium as a form of exploration into self & body, uses traditional methods to discern a metaphor, representing these as: thread as thought, warp as skeleton, weft as flesh or skin, & weave as body."
