Industrial Fibre, Fibre and Industry
An installation of fibre works exploring the diverse colours, reflections and shapes of industry.
Local artist, Lidia Godijn has created a body of work which reflects the heavy industry in the Gladstone Region through the eyes of a fibre artist. The works are constructed in the very traditional ways of loom weaving, sewing and stitching. Godijn re-purposes old work clothing and recycled metal materials, together with hand dyed silk, cotton, wire and fishing line to create contemporary three dimensional works. These works are supported by a series of manipulated digital images.
A special thanks to Boyne Smelters Limited (BSL) and Earth Commodities Gladstone Pty Ltd. for support in this project.
