This selection of works is from a body of work  titled ‘Underwater Basket Weaving’, made as part of a PhD practice based research project and was inspired from time spent as a volunteer on a Greenpeace ship in Amsterdam, when I was in the Netherlands upon the commencement of my  candidature in 2011. I was up all hours on night watch, weaving, and this was the first time I expanded upon my signature jellyfish forms, to make more figurative work, with the resulting mermaid form titled ‘Til Human Voices Wake Us and We Drown’.

 Many of the works  them have  traveled far and been exhibited widely , such as ‘Graham’ who was a finalist in the Waterhouse Natural History Prize in 2013 and ‘Magpie Goose’ and ‘Little Angrys’ made their way to the Alice Prize as finalists in 2016.

 

Some of the works are still out in the world, such as an incarnation of ‘Bones of the Forgotten’ and ‘Ghost Net Baskets’, who  feature in the exhibition ‘Earth Matters’ at the Textile Museum in Tilburg the Netherlands.

 

I believe the objects we create are like our children, they don’t belong to us, we are just vessels that bring them to life  to share their story with the world. I will continue watching and weaving the tragic tale of sea life in the plastic age.
