Slabbinck Chasuble #5009
After the successful collaboration for our home linens collection, we asked the American text artist Brody Neuenschwander to create a series of chasubles. This series reflects his calligraphic style which explores the boundaries between text and image. These vestments are digital prints, a state-of-the-art technique that Slabbinck introduces in liturgical vestments.
Brody Neuenschwander comments:
“The text that runs over the entire surface of this Advent chasuble is the Magnificat, one of the most beautiful and ancient of the Church’s liturgical songs. In the Magnificat the humility of Mary and the obedience of the people of Israel to the Lord are emphasized. The colors vary from ultramarine blue to royal purple, giving the impression of the night sky. At the center, an ecstatic band of abstract calligraphy in gold and ochre represents the light of Christ and the movement of the Holy Spirit. A sun can be seen rising just over the heart of the celebrant. But this sun can also be interpreted as the consecrated host.”
Design by Brody Neuenschwander, an American calligrapher and text artist whose work explores the boundaries between text and image, digitally printed in Pius, a 100% man-made fibres fabric.
