“Water (Flåm)”, was created while Neufeld was studying at the University of Bergen in Norway. During the rainy winter, she visited the small village at the end of the Aurlandsfjord, Flåm. Neufeld was captivated by the surrounding natural beauty and incredible patterns being formed in the ocean’s water. Using a photographic background with abstracted forms representing rain and wind, created in bold stylized colours. Each binding was designed specifically for each colour of the weaving. The weaving is made out of Norwegian wool, made at the Innvik A/S Factory in Innvik, Norway.
