Splendid – Adrienne Doig

I’ve just come across this amazing artist, who currently has an exhibition in Sydney (sadly, it is very unlikely I will be going to Sydney any time soon!).  Adrienne Doig has made a whole series of pictures from unfinished quilts from the inter-war years, and has appliquéd images onto them.  I can imagine people in the future using my unfinished projects.  The “Feminist Cliché” is my favourite.  Big_FeministCliche 2013

She has also created a series of these wonderful tapestry images of Aussie fauna – very cute.  They remind me of the Renaissance tapestries in the V&A.

This is her website – definitely worth a look!  If you are in Sydney (lucky you!) her exhibition is at the Martin Browne Contemporary.
