Introduction of the artists by Landhuis Bloemhof:
Sandra Golbert-de Aldrey is a self-taught fiber artist. Sandra’s artistic journey has been exceptional, from designing dolls’ clothes to being featured in Vogue and Architectural Digest.
Born in Puerto Rico, she has a special connection to Curacao. She lived on the island in the 70’s, where she would spend her days creating for commissions, shows and exhibitions.
Sandra has participated in solo and group exhibitions for years, including ‘9x9x3’ at the American Craft Museum (now the Museum of Art and Design) in New York City. Her work has been displayed in the Zimmerli Museum at Rutgers University and is part of the permanent collection of the National Association of Women Artists. Her art can be found in residences, corporate offices, and hotels in various countries, including the USA, the Caribbean, South America, and Puerto Rico.
Ailsa Anastatia attended the Fontys School of Fine and Performing Arts before finalizing her formal education at the Amsterdam University of the Arts in the Netherlands.
Ailsa has many solo and group exhibitions under her belt, and her artwork is displayed in collections in the USA, South America, the Caribbean, and the Netherlands. Ailsa is a versatile artist who explores diverse themes, from spirituality and memories to cultural heritage and ecological issues impacting Curaçao.
Ailsa, in a recent series titled ‘Resilient Horizons’, made possible by Prins Bernhard Cultuur Fonds, invites viewers to pass through her artistic journey that interweaves untouched landscapes with human-altered ones. Her works thoughtfully narrate Curaçao’s evolving landscapes and emphasize the importance of acknowledging historical imprints while fostering optimism for the future.
