Exhibition statement: As a fibre-based artist I feel a special connection to the histories my materials have lived and feel a palpable sensitivity to the role my part plays in those stories. Listening is an exhibition which explores how my materials are often a guiding force as I investigate how my reality is both challenged and realized by my surroundings, especially within the context of interpersonal relationships.

The woods, the forest, the bush, however you refer to these amazing timberlands we live amongst here on the beautiful west coast, we all seem to have a similar experience when we enter into these moss filled havens: we see the depths of varying shades of green, hear the sounds of streams, birds singing, the rustle of leaves in the wind, smell the earth, moss and nurse tree’s that bring new life, the woods caress us and regenerate us… When we first discussed this joint exhibit it was at the end of a long summer and I for one was tired, I had not been to my “church”, the forest to just quietly explore for 7 long weeks, I was at a loss for words to describe what I wanted our exhibit to convey. I now know this is what we want you to see when you look at these woven and turned objects, we want you to see our love for the colour of the bark, the grain of the wood, the knots, the natural edges, the textures, the roots, the pores, the fibres, the density, the growth rings. We want you to see the passion we pour into each piece that we make by hand, these creations that have come “Out of the Woods”.

Alabaster, cream, eggshell, ivory, vanilla, fog, parchment, cloud, bone. . . Anyone confronted with choosing a white paint knows that white is rarely a pure thing. It is almost always imbued with colour of some kind. For artists, exploring the wide range of white while incorporating texture and pattern opens up a world of possibilities. In this exhibition of textile and fibre based art, members of the Sunshine Coast Surface Design Group embrace the fullness of WHITE in unique and surprising ways.

This group came together to share ideas, imagination and skills related to digital textile work. While encouraging each other through support and inspiration, they push the boundaries of their own practice through experimentation. For this exhibition, each artist chose a personal photograph, “Exchanged” it with the group members and twenty-five inspired artworks resulted in five distinct interpretations of each photo. This exhibit showcases these pieces as well as selected works from the ongoing photographic explorations of the artists.

bro·ken . . . damaged or altered, disrupted by change. Imagine a work that lasts for centuries: it ages, it cracks, it may be broken and repaired but the makers vision remains. Imagine what we create now being used, breaking, being mended and repaired, lost and then returned as treasures found. Elizabeth Harris and Catherine Nicholls explore the process of deconstruction in a form of “time travel” with our newly made relics and discover the beauty in the bro·ken. As makers we would be content to see our work live on, in whole or in pieces.
