A distortion is a change, twist, or exaggeration that makes something appear different from the way it really is. You can distort an image, a thought, or even an idea. The heat from the highway creates a distortion in the way objects in the distance appear; they wiggle and dance. The ‘Distorted’ Range by Insigne Carpets was created with an intention of being able to find comfort and accept distortion as part of life.
Distortion is all around us, creating art out of daily lives. A tea spill on our cushion creating a new design from the existing one or shadows in the dark taking shape in the middle of the night. Walls often witness distortion during the monsoons in the form of seelan while borders of the world have been distorted on numerous occasions by world leaders overtime. However, when it comes to art, no amount of distortion can change its title. The range by Insigne subtly hints on the fact that certain imperfections double as artforms and we can simply choose to look at such distortions as added character.
