Synthesis is a side project for untethered fibre artists traditional exhibition cycle
18 artists from the untethered fibre artists group have interpreted the title Synthesis and its meaning: A combination of elements, as material substances or objects of thought into a complex whole
Many artists have made links between ideas surrounding significance of landscape as an artistic thought responding to places that are familiar and beautiful. The mountains, the coastal landscape, the bush have provided imagery that underpins the works. Other artists have explored ideas or thoughts that are connected conceptually into a complete whole.
The works utilise a diverse range of fibre materials and techniques creating works, that while created using cloth and stitch, felting, dyeing and twining, combine with art techniques to make works that cross the boundaries of traditional to contemporary artforms.
Embedded into each of the works is a connecting thread of blue, a unifying element for the exhibition
