Fan Worm (Detail), Meredith Woolnough
Meredith Woolnough is an award winning visual artist that works and lives near the coastal region of Newcastle NSW. Her practice engages with the natural environment utilising the skeletal frameworks of flora and fauna as the basis of her own embroidered specimens. Threads are densely stitched into freeform sculptures that are carefully pinned to paper or set in resin preserving them as delicate handmade artefacts. Her work explores themes of the interconnectedness of living things and environmental degradation.
