Out of the Ordinary: Textiles in the Everyday @ College of Fine Arts, Sydney
One of the wonderful qualities of cloth is that it wears out, breaks down and is continuously being re-made into something new. Stitching, mending and patching create a sur face of unintended beauty and the sense of “lives lived”.
It is from these ordinary practices that Dorothy Caldwell has developed the vocabulary of marks that she uses in the making of her large fabric constructions. The talk will address this aspect of traditional textiles and how it has been used as a basis for Caldwell’s work.
