Artist video round up

I need to put some metaphoric eggs into a collective basket. These eggs are in the form of some short artist videos about my artist practice and residency at theGRID hybrid arts collective in 2012.

The trailer – Gridlines EO1 teaser

The full film – Gridlines Episode 1 – Kelly-Marie McEwan & Danish Quapoor

In particular I would like to thank Ben Tupas of Oh Darling Downs for his tireless efforts to get blood out of a stone, as he condensed down a lot of footage and was very patient with two people that had never been in front of a camera before.

ABC’s A Day in the Life – Kelly-Marie: the store manager, the artist.

And that’s all there is for now.

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.
