Altered States

Altered States 2017 Members Exhibition

WAFTA Members were given the challenge to make a small art piece using the contents of a bag of stuff. Numbered bags were allocated on receipt of entry to the challenge.

Title: Trappings

Artist Statement: Known or imagined, recycled and preloved fabrics have an air of mystery, a previous belonging. This thick, black, stretchy, polyester fabric however, feels void of a story. Is it just part of the trappings of consumerism? Set to be among the never worn, never decomposing clothing destined for land fill.

Techniques: Hand Dyed, Coiled, Machine & Hand Stitch
