Natasja van Wyk - Textile Art
Natasja van Wyk is a textile artist residing in the Dandenong ranges. She is influenced and inspired by contemporary art with a strong affinity for colour blocking and portraying the abstract forms of nature in her quilting. Her art aims to evoke feelings of comfort and warmth together with a strong social justice theme and often portrays her personal emergence from trauma.
Through the use of textile I aim to explore its relationship with the human body as a symbol of protection and expression. I leave a part of myself stitched into the pattern design and thus stitched in time as well. The process of quilting, including the stitching, is cathartic and healing – promoting well-being and self-appraisal.
Parking Instructions: Plenty of parking.
