This weave measures:
and hangs off a 180cm Tasmanian oak dowel
linen, cotton, Pima cotton, Merino wool, felted Merino wool, Alpaca, bamboo, chambray, handspun scrap yarn, wool-blend yarns, hand-dyed twine, basketry rope, foraged seashells, handmade bisque beads, stoneware beads, up-cycled upholstery, canvas and sisal.
This large-scale beauty ‘CREVICE’ explores the notion of ‘what was’ and what was ‘meant to be’, similar to the cracks that appear when our identity and sense of self is in a state of flux. With the consideration of negative space and angled inclination, the weaving is suspended by an exposed warp, demonstrating that we all are ‘hanging on a thread’ in times of change. The muted colour palette was inspired by iridescent, foraged seashells; each a result of the unpredictable nature of the ocean and time. The composition is reminiscent of the skeleton of an old shipwreck resting on the bottom of the sea; succumbed to the growth of barnacles that have attached themselves, with its layers eroding over time. This is emblematic by the clusters of shells and handmade, patina bisque beads that are caught amongst the net of interknotted chains. A distressed Marie Antoinette, personified through the hand-torn linen fringing, almost mimicking a ‘past-life’ of beauty that has faded into perforated sails that no longer ‘blow in the wind’. This personal work ‘CREVICE’ is a manifestation of what it feels to let things slip through the cracks, versus a complete surrender to ‘let the light in’. - Kass
