    About The Work

    In collaborating with contemporary artists and estates, Henzel Studio has continuously strived to challenge the artisan media of handmade rugs, and to highlight unexpected and/or unexplored facets of the artists’ works to create art rugs with utmost integrity in their own right - as opposed to rugs that simply feature artwork. For the Henzel Studio Heritage: Andy Warhol collection, Henzel Studio curator Joakim Andreasson identified and used as the basis for the collection a maquette that Warhol created for an unrealized artist's book.  The handmade model consists of thirty-eight octagonal pages, each a die-cut detail from Warhol’s print edition set of Marilyn Monroe dated 1967 that includes ten variations of the iconic star. The maquette was discovered in Warhol’s Time Capsule 55 in 1994, one of 610 cardboard boxes he filled and dated from 1974 until his death in 1987. Referred to then as “Andy’s stuff”, they are filled with objects he accumulated from his daily life: gifts, collectibles, photographs, invitations, letters, magazines, newspapers, junk mail, business records and artwork. Today Warhol’s Time Capsules are known to be a diary of his everyday personal and professional life including Warhol’s artistic practice. To fully encapsulate this obscure maquette, and bring light to these practically unseen works by the artist, Henzel Studio seamlessly translated its 38 pages into remarkable hand knotted silk rugs and pillows. The resulting designs and abstractions provide an unforeseen and detailed view of Warhol’s portrait of Monroe, where each rug serves as magnified close-ups through an octagon shaped lens.
