Mending the Future for private client

By: Claudy: 22-05-2023

Studio Claudy Jongstra installed the 3.65 X 2.40-metre artwork entiteled: Mending the Future. The harmonious, earthy colours of the natural landscape fit seamlessly with the interior. "It was as if the empty white wall had been waiting for this work," says the private client with satisfaction. Claudy Jongstra embroidered subtle stitches on the wool felted art work that is coloured with natural dye plants. The artisanal hand stitch used to repair clothes gives the relief landscape aesthetic layering and movement. At the same time, it refers to the habit of throwing away clothes when they have a hole or tear instead of 'patching' them up with a few stitches, giving the garment a valuable new life.
