Crows Nest

I went up to Crows Nest Art Gallery yesterday and installed 4 of my works for their latest exhibition, Something Only We Know. Some of these works are a bit older, and I was astounded by where my head was then, and how connected these works are to periods in my life. 
I don’t think I have mentioned these works at all so far, but this is some of the soft sculptural work I just love to do:

And a little bit more Chelsie Luck

The ladder was in front of Danish Quapoor’s works, so, here’s Danish with some of mine. What’s he so mad about?

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.
