Dancing Through Disaster

Barometer 13 Gurner Street, Paddington, NSW, Australia

Fire, flood and Covid have characterised the last few years - it’s been a tough time. Our house on the South Coast was surrounded by fire in January 2020, devastating the bush for miles around and traumatising communities. My daughter’s house was inundated in this year’s floods that affected so many in northern NSW and southern Queensland. And the lockdowns caused by the pandemic meant that my PhD exhibition in 2021, representing four years of work, couldn’t be seen by friends and family (not even by the examiners!) The pandemic had a huge and detrimental effect on artists everywhere as exhibitions were cancelled and creative momentum came to an abrupt stop. I responded to this time with the sculptures and embroidered paintings in this exhibition. They are all made of repurposed materials, a reflection of my effort to have a sustainable practice.

Second Look: remade and reimagined textiles

Barometer 13 Gurner Street, Paddington, NSW, Australia

Second Look: remade and reimagined textiles exhibition reflects on how handmade textiles are made, archived, used and re used by makers. Exhibitors have saved, stored and archived pieces they have made in the past and reworked them into ‘new’ artworks or have collected interesting textiles to repurpose them into ‘new’ artworks.

The life + energy captured in these pieces were originally inspired by the wonderful concept of living, or green walls - some painted in outdoor gardens. 

Surface variations are part of the process of my practice, while each painting is a creative bush interpretation.

Composing Earth and Sky

Barometer 13 Gurner Street, Paddington, NSW, Australia

Composing Earth and Sky brings together sculptural works that explore concepts inspired by natural environments and our personal connection to them.  

Concerned with humankind’s detachment from the natural world, the artists use materials that are formed in the earth and grow towards the sky to embody this dilemma.  With their hands and hearts, they work with their material’s innate qualities to co-create forms that respond to their own environment and personal stories.  These are inextricably linked to their landscape - both earth and sky.
