Plant Stories: Woven Tapestry Narratives
Through contemporary woven tapestry, ten artists, explore their associations with, interests in and memories of particular plants, state and national floral symbols, markers of the seasons, night and day, geographic locations, connection to nature, renewal and growth.
They draw, collage, print, paint from observation and imagination to develop designs for weaving in tapestry. Often samples are woven to test the translation from artwork to weaving.
Selected images are woven on an upright warp with wefts of wool, cotton, silk and other materials. The final works are intense in the craft production and compelling as artworks.
