Summary

"The exhibition is supported by Visions Australia, an Australian Government program supporting touring exhibitions by providing funding assistance for the development and touring of cultural material across Australia. Nalda Searles has been practising her craft for nearly 30 years and is an innovator in the use of native fibres and found objects from the environment for the creation of fibre-textiles, sculptures and installations. This acclaimed Western Australian artist explores notions of identity in relation to the physical and social landscape through this comprehensive range of more than 21 works. Featured in this exhibition are works that utilise recycled clothing and textiles,hair, plant materials, meadow hay, found and salvaged objects combined with seemingly endless stitching."-- p. 76.
