Fidelity is the title of a exhibition that opens this Thursday at the new gaffa gallery in Sydney. I am very honoured to have been invited to participate in the inaugural exhibition for the new space along with some of my favourite crafty peeps: Zoe Brand, Vernon Bowden, Kath Fries, Sean O'Connell & Andrew Lavery amongst many other amazing artists. 
The of collection work I have made is a bit of a hybrid of the thread pieces and the new work I have been making for the Unnatural, naturally project. It is a collection of brooches and neckpieces that play with notions of fidelity in terms of belief in material - all of the pieces are brunette, each has a component of brown sewing thread in different tones and thicknesses - which on some pieces is quite hair-like. 
Here are some of the works:

In other news, this time next week Lauren and I will be in Auckland installing Unnatural, Naturally at Masterworks Gallery!
