The unexpected use of traditional techniques unites the work featured on Arts Thursday with Maisy Stapleton, broadcast on 27 February 2014.
The New Weave exhibition on show at Object Gallery until March 23rd explores traditional weaving techniques transmogrified by unexpected materials and means of fabrication – from barbed wire to canes of glass. Co Curators Lisa Cahill and Carrie Mulford speak of the underlying rationale and featured artists in the exhibition. http://www.object.com.au/exhibitions-events/on-now/
Patricia Casey is a photographer who prints on fabric and embroiders her work to create ethereal, mysterious pieces, redolent of the past but grappling with entirely contemporary issues.
