WAFTA In-Tension

The 2011 Western Australian Fibre and Textile Association’s exhibition was called In-Tension and the requirement was for works that were “black, white and/or bold”, reflecting architectural themes, and 2m x 1m in size. I chose to design a stained glass window along the lines of those made by Frank Lloyd Wright.  I used undyed  and hand-dyed cottons with purchased black cotton fabric. The black supports around the glass are torn fabric in an attempt to mimic the rough edges of the iron.

The exhibition was held in the Moores Building Contemporary Art Gallery, Henry Street, Fremantle.
