Claudy Jongstra

Please allow me to introduce,  Claudy Jongstra. I recently learned of her when searching through exhibits at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art online. I find it arresting how much I get from this piece, and all of her installments. Her work feels like the pulse of the earth coming through the walls and floorboards to calm us, heal us. Then, I went to her website and read about her process, and I cried. She literally surrounds enormous spaces with felt made by hand, from wool she raises, and dyed with plants she grows. I admire her work and her story to no end, and hope you will enjoy it as well.
