LOCALE 2018 GAFFA

Artist Statement

I exhibited with GAFFA Gallery in group show Locale, which included works by Sydney-based artists who directly observed and documented aspects of their residential local area. 

Recently relocated from Melbourne to Sydney to continue my artistic studies I recreated my changed environment through reclaimed cloth which led to a new conceptual focus of residence in my work.

In ‘POEM, BRUT’, my fabric and printed text installations represent my movements and sightings from daily commutes. The bright patterns in the work reference Sydney’s city skyline and bus seat motifs.

Materials: found fabric remnants, original digital print fabric, wood

Dimensions: variable
