Colours of Burnuru
My exhibit for the City of South Perth is a textile installation using fabrics I have dyed using flora found in the City's catchment. Installed at the Manning Library from June 19 through to Nov 20, the Box Gallery was a weatherproof exhibit open to the public 24/7.
All of the dyestuff was harvested during the Nyoongar season of Burnuru. A small snapshot of the local flora, immortalised in fabrics, and crafted for your viewing.
Many thanks to Matt Newell for photography, Hamish Pattison for horticultural advice, and the City of South Perth for the opportunity.
Each piece is available to purchase on removal of the installation. Please contact me for more information.
