Indigo was once precious and valued above all other assets. Blue Gold is comprised of two monumental textile collages that immerse the viewer in indigo, a pigment that was so revered as to be compared to gold.
One of two pieces belonging to the permanent collection at Triodos Bank, Human Gold communicates the value of community. Single yarns of silk represent the individual, a precious comodity in its own right. But when woven together, these yarns make up an endlessly strong and powerful network.
Commissioned to hang in the new foyer of the Rechtbank Amsterdam, 'Human Pulsations' depicts rhythmic, engrossing lines that represent the collective beat of the human pulse. In an environment of constant activity and high emotion, this piece provides a moment of mental rest.
