WEAVES – UNTIL JULY 2017
Grace’s woven body sculptures are currently exhibited as a part of the National Gallery of Victoria’s exhibition Who’s Afraid of Colour?. The exhibition celebrates indigenous women artists whose practice is unbounded by convention. It features works that are bold statements exploring colour and asserting the politics of identity.
Using the same technique, Grace develops woven necklaces titled ‘The Weave’ this is a contemporary interpretation of a technique more commonly used with palm leaves for grasshopper toys and celebration purposes. Grace played with the fabrication , colour and form to create her well known necklaces. These are currently stocked nationwide at galleries such as National Gallery of Victoria, National Gallery of Australia, Cairns Regional Gallery, The Jam Factory and retailer Christine in Melbourne.
