About by Aly de Groot

ALY DE GROOT: FINE ART-PUBLIC ART-WORKSHOPS

 

<<<BACK TO HOME PAGE>>>

 

 Aly's inter-disciplinary practice involves the creation of woven sculpture, objects , and installations that  are often  ‘witty, gawky and elegant at once’ (Ooms, Australian Art Collector, 2005). 

 

Featured on ABC’s I-view in May this year, the short film  Ghost Story: The Art of Aly De Groot,  is an evocative and haunting documentary that creatively  depicts de Groot’s multi disciplinary practice with animation and visual metaphors, making it a beautiful artwork in it’s own right.
