Wilma Simmons: Blue Interlude with Hibiscus Tea

Fabric, thread, tea bags, cyanotype photo transfer, perspex. Machine stitching, tea bag applique – Softly closing the chamber door Alone I await you in the empty room You never came I drink solitary tea … Wang Wei Looking at a photo of my great grandmother and this poem I venture down this creative journey through stitch. My Chinese/Australian heritage, native garden plants and tea bags have all featured in my art previously and come together in this work, but in contrast to the poetic scene, ‘finding my thread’ is a result of learning from and with so many other artists and friends – collaborating, celebrating, sharing and participating. 20cm x 20cm X7cm
