Rita Berghuis
Textile Art

Nederlands / Deutsch

I am fascinated by light and colour.
I love to explore textiles and textilelike materials. In my work I use the endless possibilities of changing the texture by stitching, dyeing, cutting, tearing, rearranging, embellishing to tell my stories.
I find inspiration in culture and nature, but also in everyday life.
I work spontaneously, intuitively, striving for a perfect colour balance, for subtle contrasts in colour.

Antependium green, violet and white

antependium antependium antependium white

The green antependium is the first of a series of four. Green is the colour of life, growing, hope and streams into the future. The violet antependium is the second of the series. Violet has a special liturgical meaning. It is as much the colour of sorrow as it is the colour of expectation, the advent-period. The third piece is white and will be employed on Christmas day.
