  • 3. Artist Statement
    I am an interdisciplinary visual artist - specializing in Textile Art & Wearable Art making, Environmental Art, Wildlife Costume Designing and Project Management. My artworks are inspired by the beauty of Australian surroundings, and its diverse ecosystems; and major events that happened in my life, especially my involvement with various environmental groups and NGO's. The association and qualities of my artworks and their evocation envelopes every inch of my work and are directly linked to traditional knowledge of weaving that has been passed on by Elders. My artworks explores and influence by the Contemporary, Postmodern and Conceptual Art, and with a combination of craft-making processes that allows me to create my own unique design. My artworks focuses on raising environmental awareness and my desire to use art as catalyst to raise gender equality and equal rights for women and cross – cultural understanding. My artworks have been exhibited extensively around South Australia, interstate and selective group digital exhibition in London and USA.
    Each element of my artworks evokes a metaphor as a woven image using threads, paints and fabrics to create an astonishing palette of colours and textured surfaces. The result is rhythmic stitches that produced an integrated figurative form of images and well blended colours which entwine with knowledge and story to tell—a deeper story. My artworks illuminate processes that are inherently multidimensional, creative, interactive and dynamic.
     
  • 4. Description
    The design costumes featured on this presentation focuses on the representational image of form, colour and shape of the native orchids rather than replicating its exact image. The focus is to create a story through my design while raising the issues of environmental awareness. The first costume design is created as life-like then slowly change, leaving stylized form and shape then losing its life – conveying the image of extinction of flora species. There is an inbuilt message of hope on this concept –this is being represented with a new growth of an orchid. Its materiality will manifest through aesthetic and imaginative interpretation of the costumes where elements of colours, form and shape inspired by the Spider, Helmet and Bearded orchid will be based upon. This concept is fuelled by my ongoing involvement with environmental groups and by creating these designs will significantly heightened community awareness that these species are threatened by climate change, loss of habitat and human impacts.
  • 5. Form , colour and shape: creation of a costume based on Australian Native Orchid
    “Establishing an approach that will unify theory and practice in the area of costume design through the research and study of the cultural significance of costume, its relationship to aesthetic theory and, most importantly, the role of costume as a centerpiece of narrative and storytelling. …. Stated by Philanthropist David C. Copley” (ref. http://www.tft.ucla.edu/news/announcement/450-copley-costume-center_donation/)
    The title evokes the interesting relationships between form, colour and shape in costume designing , and its thematic surrounding that can be explored. These relationships of “figure / ground” or “positive / negative” spaces interplay and become one.  Australian Native Orchids are as diverse as any other native flora, therefore it is my reason to only focus on 3 species to based my costume design on.
    This species only seen at Kangarro Island, SA

    This design is intentionally created to project the form, colour and shape of the ‘Copper –Bearded orchid’. The uniqueness of this design is the provenance, meaning each neck – tie belongs to someone and some of them has it’s name i.e. School, brand design, logo of the company who produced the neck – tie. Although these people are not presence to join and to raise their concern about environmental issues.

  • 24. Final Thought
    I hope you have enjoyed my presentation and inspired you that All designs featured on this presentation are copyrighted by the artist.
    When the time comes that these costumes undergo preservation and provenance, archivist or scientist will be able to extract my DNA due to many drops of blood absorbed in each costume for the reason that I keep stabbing my fingers with the needle pins. These costume always reminded me of David Copley’s message that in order to unify theory and the practice of costume designing is to establish an understanding and relationship between aesthetic approach of theory and understanding the role of costume as a centerpiece of narrative and story telling.
