Georgian artist and art critic Nino Kipshidze has showcased her art pieces at National Carpet Museum.

The exhibition "Fragments of Being" displays 45 panels in textile applique technique.

Nino Kipshidze’s artworks of different shapes and colors constitute complex textile mosaics where the fabric fragments of various shades and textures create an amazing surface that visually breaks the limits of the two-dimensional plane and presents a completely new, special, unique, and multidimensional world.

Her artworks are on the fine and astonishing verge of painting and textile. The artist designed many landscapes and still lifes, as well as figurative compositions.

Nino Kipshidze's creativity is replete with still lifes depicting different colored bouquets of flowers arranged literally petal by petal.

She is also the author of the mystical landscapes often resembling the Eastern engravings or even the architecture elements due to the laconic colorful expression.

The Carpet Museum director Shirin Malikova addressed the opening ceremony of the exhibition.

"I am very glad that the exhibition representing artworks by the talented artist Nino Kipshidze today is on display in Baku. Her artworks of different shapes and colors are absolutely amazing.
