One of the great aspects of belonging to a textile art group is that we are able to challenge ourselves and receive feedback and critique from group members. For our previous exhibition challenge, we chose the exhibition title of Fusion as our challenge theme.
Each group member completed a 30cm square artwork on the theme, working independently to achieve their vision. Ideas explored included the melding of ideas to form a structure, molten metal fusion in creation, alchemy, thermoplastic fusion, fusion of metals in jewellery creation and the fusion of segments of daily life to form a whole.
