2022 – femmeBRUT
I am creating large size works (2x2m) for a solo show in Feb/March 2022 in the Bagagehal in Loods 6.
The series for the exhibition in Loods 6 will be a monumental series of works with paint, patches and threads.
They are partly made with the longarm machine, which I use in a quilt shop in Schagen with the assistance of a professional in this field. I pluck elements from this traditional world by freely interacting with it.
This already creates an abrasive contrast during the making process, when there are quilt women visitors in the shop in Schagen. With a longarm machine of 3 meters wide, you pull the sewing machine over the fabric instead of the fabric under the sewing machine. So you can stitch material in the middle large areas and draw with the sewing machine.
I want the exhibition in February to be a big surprize, so I am only showing details from this new series.
