Born in Jakarta, Natisa Jones is a visual artist who works between Bali, Indonesia where she spent most of her childhood growing up – and recently Amsterdam, Netherlands. Completing Visual Art diploma studies in Chiang Mai Thailand and a bachelor’s degree of Fine Arts Painting in RMIT University - Melbourne, Australia. Through the method of documentation and experimentation, Jones’ practice has become a platform to confront inner dialogues. Jones draws a parallel between the human experience and the creative process - a relationship which to her, informs one another. Often incorporating text onto image – she pulls narratives from daily life, to explore issues within identity and reflect on ideas of the ‘self’ and its place within a wider social context.
In the process of designing this carpet, the artist imagined a living room, a social space within a home; a space where one invites family, friends and even strangers over on occasions. Ideally, one’s home, should be one’s sanctuary - a safe place. Where friendly discussions and fondly reciting remember-whens took place, as well as the place where many life challenges solved. The artist wishes that the type of interaction in the social space of her home ideally is the type of exchanges that are welcoming, warm and pleasant. For the conversations - however heavy or light - to be at ease and unthreatening.
