Jardin à la Française KF-Hein-Fund Utrecht 2020
Commissioned flag design for 20th anniversary art committee.
The K.F. Hein Fund's art committee decided because of their 20th anniversary, to celebrate this by asking 6 artists/ designers they cooperated with in the past 20 years, to nominate an artist of designer of their preference to design a flag. Utrecht based artist Frank Halmans asked me to participate.
I decided to create an original design on textile by using the ancient Indonesian technique of batik. The design is based on the K.F. Hein Funds hidden garden; a 17th century Jardin à la Française.
