Tjitske Storm, Autumn Forest, NL, 2022
Renowned contemporary fiber artist Tjitske Storm is celebrated for her captivating tapestries that delve into the natural world while seamlessly merging age-old craftsmanship with modern technology. Storm’s art embodies the convergence of contrasting realms, where the fluid elegance of organic forms intersects with meticulously crafted geometric compositions. Her creative journey commences with high-resolution photography and culminates in vivid digital collages that achieve a graceful equilibrium between recognizable components and intricate abstract structures. By integrating digital techniques into her work, Storm revitalizes the ancient art of tactile craftsmanship, firmly situating it within the contemporary landscape. Her pieces illuminate the interplay between diverse species, juxtaposing the digital and the tactile, abstract and detailed elements, and geometric and organic aspects. Through her exploration and harmonization of these contradictions and perspectives, both conceptually and visually, Storm aspires to “rewild the world,” essentially aiming to re-establish humanity’s connection with the natural world.
In her collection “The Seasons,” which features limited-edition woven tapestries, Storm pays a vibrant tribute to the beauty and diversity of the natural world. She creates photographic digital assemblages, painstakingly crafted from hundreds of high-resolution images, which are then translated into intricately detailed jacquard tapestries. Her process represents a unique marriage between modern technology, in the form of digital rendering, and one of the earliest forms of textile production: weaving.
Abundant flowers, plants, birds, insects, and butterflies come together to form a harmonious image that oscillates between the organic and the graphic.
