A3 mixed media collage artwork.
Country Women is the heroine artwork in a collection of mixed media collage pieces, each generated through exploration and rediscovery of once essential craft practices to create bold new prints incorporating imagery from the book ‘The Australian Country Side in Pictures’ 1956, which centre around country women in Australia in the 1950’s at work along with nature photography, with hand painting, embroidery and digital manipulation. Drawing from my personal history growing up in country Australia this collection takes inspiration from the strong Women in my life who all played a role in my love for traditional craft practices. Each artwork intends to highlight the importance of equality in recognition of the contribution that Women have made in history and firmly in today’s contemporary art space.

*** Artwork will remain at the exhibition after purchase and be collected on Tuesday 17 January & Wednesday 18 January 2023 between the hours of 10am and 3pm. Please contact QVWC if you need it before the collection dates.
