I’m in…

Really excited to start my first week of artist residency at theGRID hybrid arts collective space.

Oh no!
Just kidding! I have been sitting on these images for months.
It looks like this now:
Our room!

Classy couches (don’t look closer)

Best desk. Needs tabletop?

Quapoor has moved his drawings in…

A table with blackboard chalk.

A table with blackboard chalk!

Nice big drawers to hide snake corpses….also, wool.
Spent Monday in this room for the project, but today was too cold. So I spent it in the MARS gallery with some nice people and smashed out a headband and more beanbag. Project update later this week.

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.
