February – what I have so far (crochet)

While I have spent the last year dabbling in different techniques to increase my range and repertoire, crochet has the #1 place in my heart, and I am (attempting to) pull out all the stops in regards to this next work and what I will be crocheting for it. Fortunately, construction of theGRID space continues on, allowing a bit of a run-up to the work.
Some of what I have so far:
A place for all the floating pieces
One bag of a different kind of growth
It’s not much, yet, but combined with the rugging and felting…I think I just need to keep going! 
Wish me luck.

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.
