The Ancestors Of The Birth Of An Idea Series

Ida Ivanka Kubler has used silk cocoons on and off throughout her life. However in 2004 she created her first artwork of silk cocoons. In this artwork she developed techniques for manipulating the cocoons that features so prominently in The Birth of an Idea series that started in 2009. In this early, experimental artwork, all the cocoons are a singular colour: silver. The artwork is a complete quadrat and is on heavy paper board. Ida started using a canvas background later. This piece was shown at a fair in Paris and is currently in an art collection in Australia.

In 2007 Ida created a second experimental cocoon artwork here cocoons are placed in an uneven spread out circle, they are painted unevenly in bright water based paint in diverse colours and are attached to a paper board. The artwork is a smaller size than later works.
