Works    2019 Small Gatherings

8 October - 9 November 2019

Craft Victoria Vitrine Gallery, Melbourne

 

Small Gatherings is a continuation of work that originated during my residency at Craft Victoria in August last year. Over several weeks, I collected, cut out and rearranged photographs sourced from the library at Craft to develop a series of works on paper: collage ‘samplers’ created with the specific intention of application to fabric.

The initial phase of this project was guided in part by my aim to extend my creative practice into textile design. It also allowed me to explore an ongoing interest in materiality and assemblage, which continues here.
