Renée Koldewijn | installation | mixed media | 2017
Sabine Bolk, artist:
‘After the article got published by ModeMuze, I got a friend request on Facebook. I normally don’t accept so fast, but her pictures made me happy at once.
It turned out I wrote my article about artist Renée Koldewijn favourite fabric. A fabric that inspires her and of which she made many artworks. I was happy I could use two of her pictures in this post. The first picture shows a painting, shirt and rabbits sculpture made from a Hitarget copy from the classic Vlisco ‘Good Living’ design. After discovering this Hitarget fabric was a “fake”, she found the original from Vlisco and got even more inspired by it. I love the image of the Java Print wall, with the artist dressed in the Java print (Chinese copy) holding up her painting of Obama with a ‘Good Living’ shirt on!’
