‘Tachism’, ‘abstract expressionism’, or the like, are by no means a Western modernist invention. The ‘feminine’ art of weaving explored these principles prominently — and much earlier than Western artists. Let us turn to North Africa and to Iran. We refer primarily to textiles created for domestic use, rather than commercialized fabrics. Here the unpredictable and ‘chaotic’ configurations are presented without any reference to the visually discernible world.
