Corrie Wortel (1932-2010)

White on White by Corrie Wortle

(Wool tapestry)

Corrie Wortel was Dutch. She created paintings, drawings and wall hangings, living and working initially in Krommenie, and later in Haarlem. She had several successful exhibitions. She based her pen drawings on a specific series of numbers, which she set out as measuring points and then connected them. By assuming the same series and varying the connection system, endless variations of refined and sensitive geometric structures arose.

This work was purchased from the Exhibition of Contemporary Ditch Weaving at the Edinburgh Festival in 1973.
