ON THE BEACH (2006) 70x58cm
Acquisition

‘On the Beach” was the 2006 Winner of the Australian Quilters’ Association exhibition, Australian Quilts in Public Places (AQIPP) Award.

It celebrates a quintessential Australian experience, being on the beach as a child, splashing, digging, finding shells and seaweed. It uses pockets and hidey-holes for treasures and images, to echo the private imaginative world of the child.

Mixed Media work with computer-printed images collaged and appliquéd overlay. Some images are deliberately obscured in 'pockets' of fabric, to recreate a child's 'lift-the-flap' story-book. Techniques include hand- and machine-quilting, surface-manipulation, embroidery and beading.
