“I am interested in exploring the resonance of repurposed materials and the impact of multiples as compositional elements. For this installation I have woven beach-found fishing ropes to create a colony of enigmatic forms. My inspiration comes largely from the volcanic vents punctuating the plains [and ocean-beds] of southwest Victoria and the organic forms that inhabit them. Fishing practices and environmental issues are also referenced in the materials and construction of the pieces.”  Carmel Wallace 2016

My work Hybrid Reef has been selected for this exhibition.

‘Our fifth biennial Petite – Miniature Textiles exhibition goes from strength to strength, with artists from around the country participating in this project, displaying contemporary textiles that are no larger than 30 x 30 x 30cm.

Techniques and themes exploring everything from the joy of pure colour, texture and decoration, through to more serious contemplation on environmental and social issues and elements that propel textiles into the realm of art.’ wangarattaartgallery.com.au
