Jenni Kemarre Martiniello: ReInventing the Weave
25 April to 7 June 2015
Weaving has been a long and durable practice within Australian Indigenous Cultures. This exhibition features the sublime, hand blown woven glass sculptures of Jenni Kemarre Martiniello which are inspired by, and draw upon, the beauty of traditional woven objects while paying respect to the elegant forms of these utilitarian vessels. The glass weave technique explores the geometry and precision of the traditional form, fusing it with the exquisite beauty of glass and light to celebrate the juncture of object and art.
