Evelyne M. Fricker
From Textile Art to Geomancy
Geomancy is a holistic approach to the subtle, invisible dimensions of the Earth. The Earth consists of a multi-dimensional landscape that requires guidance and attention. A multi-dimensional reality consists of vital energetic, emotional, mental-spiritual and material elements. Through special exercises, the consciousness is trained or sensitized to direct the perception to different levels, and thus also to recognize the subtle realities and to transfer them to the material level. Evelyne M. Fricker sees these elemental beings as tree-like, with healing powers in their roots. Their contemplation can awaken a memory in us, perhaps create tolerance and reverence for the secrets of life. We humans bear responsibility toward the Earth and the preservation of nature, because it is our future. The textile work of the designer and artist Evelyn M. Fricker consists of materials that the industry declares as waste products, including misprinted fabrics, patterns of new developments, materials from bankrupt estates, and homemade fabrics from the remnants of embroidery.
