RED SEA exhibition

Carmel’s solo exhibition RED SEA at Gallery 101 Melbourne (28 August – 15 September 2007) addressed issues including those of global warming and marine pollution. She used materials collected on her many beach walks to construct her sculptures and wall pieces, and as the basis of her prints: ‘My verandah is groaning with plastic cray-pot throats, wooden cargo wedges, floats, fishing ropes and other strange industrial objects that defy definition. The sea continues to purge itself of these foreign bodies. I continue to relieve its tide-lines of them. There seems no end in sight, but we work together, the sea and I, in a continuous cycle of purging and collecting.’ Carmel Wallace 2007
