Internationally acclaimed Dutch artist Claudy Jongstra creates visceral landscapes of texture and color. These site specific and often monumental murals and sculptural installations have a strong connection with their physical space. Using a surprising range of natural materials and techniques,Jongstra’s distinctive approach involves a breathtaking inquiry into the mysteries of dye crops and natural pigments from which her intense nuances of colors are crafted. With deep connections with her surroundings as vital elements for the production of her work and sustainability at the center of her philosophy and working process, Jongstra is committed to the preservation and activation ofnatural and cultural heritage.

Claudy Jongstra focuses on the process of Jongstra’s work as well as the tactile and sensitive aspects of her work. Visual artist Louwrien Wijers crafts a ‘mentalsculpture’ of Jongstra, art historian Laura M. Richard writes a probing informative essay and Claudy Jongstra reflects about the latest developments and her vision for the future. With many lavish visual references and a stunning design by Irma Boom, this beautiful book highlights an exceptional and ongoing career.
