This year TRAILS finalists included artists from across Australia. The works reflected a range of media, techniques and experience, providing viewers with a broad spectrum from which to cast their People's Choice vote. TRAILS included large scale works in the main exhibition and small scale works in a miniatures exhibition.
Inspired by the opposing movements of embodiment and release present during breathwork meditation. Fibres of merino and corridale fuse together to create form through connection, surrounding a window of black silk gauze. A felted sphere levitates and is held in tension to the body of the work by thin threads. The forms invoke the synergy of our breath - inhale/exhale, expansion/contraction, constance/flux, containment/release.
Exhibited at Julia Street Creative Space, 2023
