Textile Art with waste Materials
Judith Mundwiler searches her textile way to express herself in small-sized, detailed and grid-like objects. Powerful, moving and personally important issues and themes she expresses in large formats. For that she chooses fabrics, which she prints on, labels, laminates, melts or frays before she combines them to multilayered and translucent tapes by machine or hand embroidery. A multitude of such tapes she then layers on top or next to each other. By that she manages to imply an effect of depth without losing the lightness or transparency. This is of particular importance because she also included soul-stirring and sad themes in her latest works.
