Since the 1990s Ella Koopman has been working with textiles as an artist, the flexibility and tactility is what inspires her. She started with fabrics for Parisian and Dutch couturiers such as Claude Montana, J.J. de Castelbajac and Mart Visser. Subsequently, her work was applied in architecture (including the Maagdenhuis, The Van Assendelft chapel in The Hague and the ships of the Holland Amerika Line). Gradually she moved towards sculptures bounded and determined by a metal construction, reinforced, semi hardened textile forms that take on a meaning by their shape.
