Humine Spongiform, 2010. Wool and hessian backing.
So, I am starting to write about my art in particular and crafts in general. Bear with me as I become accustomed to this.
Above is an image of a work of mine. Currently, my favourite way of making works is by utilising crochet and rugging techniques, although I also enjoy free form crochet and working with paper, paint and clay, as well as making jewelery and sculptures from found objects. I think that I am starting to understand the joys of collaboration, although I have not made many collaborative works. It feels good to be a part of something constructive. 

About kellymarietheartist

I am an artist who, up until recently, was living and exhibiting within Toowoomba and the greater Granite Belt district. I have since packed up and left Australia, and am currently living and working in England. My work engages the craft involved in handmaking within a contemporary art context. I am drawn to the physicality of repetitive textile processes, and this is transcribed though the tactile quality of my forms. In particular, processes such as crochet, sewing and rug making serve as a proxy for growth within my personal environment. Many of my works imitate situations in nature, and they form organically as I create each individual piece, each addition both a continuation and re-enforcement of its predecessors. I enjoy using recycled materials for many of my works. Using crochet and other textile techniques to do this is an important part of my work as it celebrates a tradition of craft that has historically been relegated to 'women's work', with all the negative connotations that entails.
