Fairy-ring 2, done and dusted.

So, it took approximately one month, and I have pretty much finished Fairy-ring 2. I say ‘pretty much’  as there is about another hour of polishing (clipping the loops to make the pile) needed, and I have yet to sew a wee label on the back. I added about another single and double sheets’ worth of material to complete it, and fortunately I still have enough left over to begin Fairy-ring 3; Emergence (working title). Stay tuned for those developments. I can promise armatures, more crochet and an interesting tangent.

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.
