Tapestries and embroideries by Carmel D'ambrosio.
Opening event 10:30am Sunday 11 November.
"I am interested in the way well designed food is both structurally enticing and texturally evocative. Through my use of tapestry weaving, I hope to communicate both the bold and the delicate. I also hope to encompass the architectural grandeur and the sensual.
I have developed a method of weaving that allows me a great range of expressive freedom. I blend colours together in the actual threads and I weave across the horizontal and vertical organisation of the loom creating diagonals and curves where necessary. I work very intensely with photographs but every section is interpreted by very careful selection of colours that may not be altogether realistic but gradually the work becomes integrated within its own group of colours."
