Heathcote Gallery, Melville, Western Australia.

Infinite.

This work is one piece of wire shaped and knitted from endless loops. A circle has no start and no end. Infinite. With this sculpture I hope to reinforce the value that previous generations have placed on the practice of hand knitting. I wish to stimulate debate on domestic textiles within the wider art world and question the relevance it has in modern society. The work won the Overall Judges Choice Award in the City of Melville Art Awards and is now located in the Melville Council Chambers, Almondbury Rd, Booragoon.
