Textiles and Printmaking Studio
February to May 2024
Celia is a textile artist, based in Gulumoerrgin/Darwin. Her formal training in fashion design and garment construction has morphed into an obsession with all textile and dyeing processes.
Her current focus is silk painting; exploring this medium as a site for experimentation and subversion. The artist residency is an opportunity to explore the traditional ‘mistakes’ within the silk painting process; investigate these nuances and by doing so, subvert the traditional boundaries of the medium. While working from within questions of how the environment of Gulumoerrgin/Darwin during the wet season affects the interaction of materials.
Celia will also be holding an exhibition in the Tactile Arts Gallery from October 4th - October 19th.
