Exhibition Countdown: 6 days to go!
Today’s preview from the Australia Wide Six exhibition is Garden of the Everlastings 1 by Jane Stone of Como, Western Australia. Slow textile techniques, in Jane’s art practise, have become a form of meditation and an artistic language. She uses a series of drawn stitch lines, and a limited colour palette of embroidery thread. The stitch play of line, colour and texture creates a sense of space. Through observation and sight, Jane uses her needle and thread like a pencil. Jane says, ‘I have freedom to build up interesting surface textures and patterns. I can work on small pieces and large pieces. Pieces can be later finished in my studio’.
AW6 Preview is a series of daily blog posts from 29 July to 31 August 2018 that will feature an artist and preview their artwork from the Ozquilt Network members’ exhibition Australia Wide Six.
