Alternate view: untethered fibre artists
Alternate View explores small scale artworks created in the perceived confines of a defined space. These windows, looking out, have each subsequently morphed into something quite unique: some through the distortion of optics of viewing through the acrylic surround: some exploring the conflation of space, others vibrating with personality, colour and texture.
Each artwork is imbued with its maker’s individual story, celebrating the differences in all. The exhibition is a mix of the realistic and abstract, presenting different subjects and emotions, all individual in their story. Alternate View use the metaphor of the acrylic box confines to represent ’Windows’ – looking ahead/out/forward, projecting optimism, looking forward, hope – embracing the inevitability and excitement of life.
UNTETHERED FIBRE ARTISTS INC. produce and exhibit art using fibre, textile materials and processes.
The group provides a forum for members’ expression and development of fibre art practices.
Established in 2014 untethered fibre artists formed a collegial group of artists whose artmaking practice focussed on fibre and textiles. The purpose of the group was to provide a supportive arena in which members could respond to a themed exhibition title, sharing their individual artmaking journey with other group members with a view to using the ensuing dialogue to build refinement and skill into their bodies of work. Alternate View is the latest outcome of this collegial process, with every untethered member (currently 17 members) making one cube or two works- with an estimated number of 26 artworks in total.
… a different perspective exhibition will be opened on Saturday 21 May 2022 at 4-6pm. It will run from 19 April – 29 May 2022
