For Alison Muir of Cremorne, NSW new works start with a ‘water message’. The design is generated following research and experimenting and testing techniques, colours and stitching often bringing together unconnected ‘traditions’ such as political comment, scientific details, graphics and text to form abstract landscapes/seascapes such as Very Dry.
2019 Australia is in the midst of the worst and longest drought since records were kept. The politicians says it’s not climate change. Dry stalks don’t feed cattle or sheep. When will our Indigenous people be respected to manage the land and water the ways they have for Millenia?
