Liz Williamson & Amanda Ho: Contemporary Weaving Exhibitions

Liz Williamson Local Colour: Eucalyptus Shadows & Amanda Ho Spatial Layering These two exhibitions (on display from 1 June to 14 July 2019) present a small range of contemporary weaving by two Australian highly professional and accomplished textile artists. They coincide with the Wangaratta Contemporary Textile Award 2019 at Wangaratta Art Gallery (June-August) and the Wangaratta Stitched Up Textile Festival (July). Liz Williamson presents a range of Eucalyptus dyed woven pieces created directly from subtle colours sourced from local plants in the Sydney region. Several species of Eucalyptus have been used to create randomly patterned silk cloth before it is shredded into strips for weaving as weft, thus creating varying combinations that echo resist patterning and irregular striping. This superb group of works draw on research conducted by the artist into the history of plant dyes in Australia. Image: Liz Williamson, detail ‘Eucalyptus Shadow’ 2019.
