My last day in Switzerland was stitching in the famous St. Gallen Textile Museum. I gave a talk about my work and then proceeded to stitch stitch stitch portraits! Sadly I was working too hard to see the exhibitions! Embroidered textiles have long been a speciality of St. Gallen, their expert craftsmanship was exported all around the world since the 1800’s! It’s a delicate white embroidered fabric looking similar to lace and worn by royalty of the ages right up to Michelle Obama! Thank you St. Gallen textile museum for making me feel so welcome! #lovetextiles#textilemuseum#stgallen#embroidery#portraiture#stitch#people
Die letzten Tage haben wir in Lima mit Kunst und Museen (hier im wirklich guten Textilmuseum) verbracht und jetzt sitz ich in Paris am Flughafen und kann nur eins denken: Ich wollte doch noch gar nicht gehen. 💔
Throwback to the time I learn to batik with a canting. This was at the Textile Museum in Jakarta. I fell in love with the process straight away that I bought the canting and ask Os to take some batik wax with him the last time he went to Indonesia. Some people use a mix of just paraffin and beeswax but it’s not the same (although it works perfectly!). The traditional ingredients creates this golden tinge and a scent that reminds me of my childhood. Batik is the heart of every Indonesian home. I’m Javanese from my father’s side; they use batik for every stage of their lives. Birth. Wedding. Death. My mother has a wardrobe full of batik that she wore for parties and I remember admiring her as she dresses up in her traditional garb and that faint smell of batik wafted from her closet.
Coincidentally, my mother was the one who took this photo. She was always the one who tolerates all my creative interests and the weird shit that comes a long with it. We rode a ‘bajaj’, a three wheel vehicle that’s so small, loud, and can vibrate your whole body even after you get off of it 😂 It was a lovely day out with her ☺️ 🖤
