Inspired by a mixture of cult movies and personal memories, Rommelaere’s
work is full of images, symbols, and autobiographical stories that point to real and imagined social connections. Each piece takes time and love to produce, highlighting the importance of human connection in both the creation and consumption of art. To produce his work, Rommelaere works closely with a tight-knit, group of veteran craftswomen who go by the madams to produce his pieces. For the last seven years, he has depended on the madams to bring his sketches and creative visions to life. The exhibition will showcase some of Rommelaere’s latest work and some previously unseen pieces. From tapestries to pillars and life-sized dolls, Klaas’s likens his embroidery process to a diary entry come to life. Finely deconstructing the parallels of memory and social bonds. His newest exhibition Dark Uncles
at Madé van Krimpen Gallery in Amsterdam is on show now until July 30th.
