Powerhouse Museum Curator of Textiles Lindie Ward discusses the groundbreaking 'Love Lace' exhibition on show at the Powerhouse until April 2013. A globally sourced series of works it showcases 130 designs for openwork structures from 20 countries.
Critic and author John Neylon unpacks the long and illustrious career of Helen Fuller who has turned to handbuilding clay vessels in the last three years. He writes: "Responding to patterns of connection based on colour, shape, functionality, memory or caprice is the hallmark of Fuller’s behaviour as an artist. The pas de deux of pattern-based painting and patterning embedded within objects is a constant reminder of the role which patterning, particularly grid and checkered, continues to play in expressing an inner state of mind which simultaneously celebrates and defies a call to order.
