Today I visited the Graduation Show of Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam. Two buildings, together 10 floors of the the final work from all departments. A lot of video, installation and performances. Very little painting. The design lab’s exhibition was excellent. The work of the architecture department was very impressive. The fashion design was particularly good. All together great pleasure.
Last Friday I had a textile workshop at the Atelier-Oosterbosch. It was a wonderful gathering of very creative women. The atmosphere was great and the work which was created was very divers and full of imagination. I had a wonderful time!
I’m very excited to have a workshop inspired by my art-work at Atelier Oosterbosch. The idea and initiation was all in the hands of the amazing Anita Oosterbosch. We are going to make a collage and then translate it to a beautiful textile-art-work. looking forward…:-) Two last things: Check this great “the art cake“ art site runs by very lovely Christi! and this amazing summer days here make me so damn happy… Some pictures I’ve took at the last workshop
A smile and behind the smile.. Thread on paper This week challenge is hosted by talented and happy Leena.
The works of Nalogina Lubov are nothing less than stunning. Her imagination and the detailed work is an invitation to dive into her fabulous world. +Sorry my dear friends for not participating in the last “drawing challenge.” As you probably noticed I had some technical problems on my blog (as well on my computer) flexed only this morning. Thank you for bringing this to my attention ..:-)
Well, looking at this should give a good idea how (and with whom…) I’m spending my days…;-)
