QDOS Fine Arts 35 Allenvale Road Lorne VIC Australia
Created largely from fishing-gear amassed over many years of exploring the coastal environment of southwest Victoria, this selection of abstract sculptural and assemblage works and limited edition prints is from a number of on-going series addressing issues relating to climate change and use of resources.
20 November 2019 – 5 January 2020 Main Gallery, Yering Station VIC
The works in this solo exhibition are selected from an ongoing series, begun in 2003, focusing on the coastal environment of my home territory in southwest Victoria, Australia. All works in Undertow are made of fishing gear broken free and washed up on the beaches of Discovery Bay. Each is made of a particular collection I’ve amassed over many years of walking this sensational coastline.
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
