A Slow Journey With Wool - an exhibition for winter by Fiona Dunbar King and Glynis Charles June 1 - July 29 2022
The winter exhibition at CTC Robertson will feature woolly works by Glynis Charles and Fiona Dunbar King. Fiona's textile art is a series of landscapes inspired by scenes of the Southern Highlands that blur the lines between Art and Craft. Fiona is responding to the beauty of this land with a series of knitted landscapes and unique hats created from locally sourced wool. Glynis has always had a deep connection to all things wool through the knitting and crocheting women of her family and especially through her Dad who spent his whole career involved in the manufacture of top quality Australian Woollen textiles. Glynis sculpts and shapes with fine Australian merino wool fibre using the ancient method of wet felting. With an amazing depth and range of colours it is as though she is painting with wool. Her inspiration is derived from nature and her pieces are often embellished with silk fibres and fabric.
