Art mask: Windows Over False Bay
Windows Over False Bay
This digital art mask is made to order and can take up-to three weeks to print, stitch and pack. True art takes time, and it’s worth it.
I like to treat others in the way I like to be treated… and kindness is a tonic for everyone. I joined this collab because I like embroidery and if I can help in a small way, then I’m glad.
Masks matter because if they can help prevent catching this virus, then they’re worth wearing as a sign of respecting the people I come in contact with, not wanting to potentially pass the virus onto others. It’s a solidarity thing.
Gina is originally from Austria and now lives in Cape Town. Her work tries to make sense of what it means to live between two worlds, stitching her life together.
She has a textile studio-collective in Muizenberg, where she shows the work of local fibre artists and holds classes.
The short film Sew Many Days by Green Renaissance Movies tells the story of Gina’s stitched postcards. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EITLA0fvx0I
