GERDA VAN HAMOND
Inner and Outer Searching 1994. Woven tapestry; wool cotton 179 x 158 cm
To anyone who knows me very well it is no secret the the work of Gerda van Hamond is high on my list of favorite contemporary artist working in the field of tapestry weaving.
Gerda’s tapestries are often large scale and incredibly detailed, showing a long commitment to the discipline that it takes to produce large studio woven tapestries. A process which is often so painstakingly slow.
Gerda has begun writing a blog, you can visit here. I am so pleased that Gerda has decided to share her fabulous work with a larger audience. I will certainly be looking forward with anticipation to her progress. ENJOY!
