Visual Designer and Artist Colette Vermeulen studied Fashion Design in the Netherlands prior to completing a master degree at the Royal College of Art in London. After working for the fashion house Roksanda in London for three and a half years, Colette decided to moved to Berlin to focus on her autonomous work, and is now experimenting with collage, furniture, illustration and textile design. One of her recent ventures is a series of paper wall-hangings which she started making during an artist residency at Taliesin West – Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture in Arizona USA.
The images represent landscapes with sunsets and sunrises. They started out of an urge to recreate her experience of witnessing Arizonian change of light, bringing on the most bright and intense colours. The images draw the viewer in the landscapes, and they become dissolved in them, bringing the viewer a sense of serenity. By dissecting the elements of the landscape and organising and framing them into a new image she creates a translation of the real world into her interior experience. With these wall hangings Colette brings texture and colour inside the otherwise white and geometric spaces we live in.
I'd love to hear from you!
