“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
