Exhibition at Atelier gallery

So, I have works at the Atelier Unique Fine Art gallery. There’s an open day on this Sunday from 12pm-2pm and I would love to see people there, to talk about textiles and what not. There’s so much on this weekend! I will be swinging by there in between the Have a Go festival at the Cobb n’ Co and the Twee as Folk festival in Newtown Park… oh my goodness, busy days.

I will of course bring along the obligatory needle, ball of wool and tiny scissors. Here’s a sneak peek of what’s going on at Atelier Unique Fine Art:

Currently, there’s a few of the works in several pieces. This will be amended for Sunday. Looking fowards to this year’s first exhibition and the first exhibition of Fairy-ring 3; Emergence.

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.
