Weaver’s Lane Exhibition 20th August to 15th September 2018
August 20, 2018 - September 15, 2018
Jaquiline Carmichael is a local Port Lincoln artist who draws inspiration from the natural world to produce handmade, woven textiles which draw heavily on their influence from the often simple, yet always magical, world around us.
Jaquiline’s international travels as well as the tiny little observations in her own backyard have weaved a rich tapestry of experience in their own right. For the past few years she has been able to express these experiences via the ancient art of weaving, fabricating her own looms and teaching herself to weave and to bring warps and wefts together to produce unique and stunning wall pieces.
A passionate a dedicated recycler, Jaquiline creates her pieces using recycled, used yarns which are carefully selected to mirror her vision.
In this new collection of works, Jaquiline has observed the birds which frequently visit her backyard, noticing their subtle yet important interactions with the flora and fauna. Her garden a natural weaving in its own right, with each leaf, feather, plant and fibre all subtly connected to form a piece which is the sum of its tiny, magical parts. These observations are referenced in each of her new pieces.
Come for an earthly stroll through ‘String, Clay and Feathers’, an exhibition by Jaquiline Carmichael.
