Raija Jokinen

Raija Jokinen is a textile artist from Finland. Alot of her work uses fibre and is based on and references the body and ‘the borderlines of physical and immaterial feelings’.

I discovered her work through various searches within Pinterest and was really interested in a body of work where she uses paper and paper yarn in intriguing ways. Seemingly unstructured wrapping and weaving painted in a nieve way.

I really like the rawness of these pieces and the simple unstructured nature of them. They seem to be simply woven in on themselves rather than using a particular formal technique. The use of paper yarn has similarities to some of my pieces in my major project but also I feel some of the essence of them can be carried through to my work.
