Beaded Assemblages 1 and 2
Glass beads, thread, second-hand t-shirts, calico
29cm x 40cm (framed)
Bead 'drawings' that follow the colours, shapes and designs found on second-hand garments. Corporate logos, children's characters, print designs -- all pulled out, flipped, and abstracted through chance cutting -- are reassembled onto calico and filled with lines of beading.
Exhibited at Artisan, Brisbane in 2013 as part of 'Push/Pull', an exhibition of contemporary needlework.
