PLIABLE PLANES: EXPANDED TEXTILES & FIBRE PRACTICES
UNSW Galleries, Sydney
29 April - 17 July 2022
I'm so thrilled to be showing both solo and collaborative works with John Nixon for the Pliable Planes: Expanded Textiles & Fibre Practices exhibition, which draws together practitioners who reimagine practices in textiles and fibre art. The project takes its title from a 1957 essay by Bauhaus artist Anni Albers that sought to rethink the use of weaving through an architectural lens and interpret textiles as fundamentally structural and endlessly mutable.'
The exhibition will open on Friday 29 April, with an all day symposium to follow on Saturday 30 April Symposium: Starting at Zero, and will continue to tour until 2025.

Our heartfelt thanks to Olivia and Edward of ReadingRoom for this opportunity.

'This exhibition is a dedication to the ongoing evolution of ‘material culture’ – an attempt to expand on conversations surrounding why and how things are made, and what social, functional, or symbolic needs they satisfy. Featuring the work of 16 designers, makers and artists, the exhibition encourages participants and guests alike, to imagine a world where yesterday’s ideologies and tomorrow’s innovation can coexist.'

I'm very pleased to participate in the 2021 Blindside ARI's B-Side exhibition fundraiser alongside many wonderful artists. Funds raised from the exhibition support Blindside ARI's exhibitions and programs.
Designing a wine label has been a little dream of mine for a long time, which is why I am very pleased to share that one of my collaged drawings now has its place on a bottle of pinot noir called Zèfiro.
Zèfiro is the name of a breeze which blows from the West in Italy, commonly known as the wind that brings sailors home. It is the first wine of Filippo Giorli made in Australia, and is the wine with which he will return to his hometown in Tuscany to continue the practice.
Now available in select wine bars and retailers in Melbourne.
