Sea Grapes with Coraline Epiphytes
Sea Grapes with Coraline Epiphytes by South Australian artist Kath Inglis.
ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Raised in Darwin, Kath Inglis moved to Adelaide to study contemporary jewellery. After graduating from the South Australian School of Art in 2000, Inglis continued to develop her practice by working from a number of studios, including the renowned Gray Street Workshop and JamFactory Metal Design Studio.
Kath Inglis is a material based maker in that significant relationships are formed between the material, maker and tool. Since 2001 her practice has focussed on the manipulation and transformation of a commonplace material, Poly Vinyl Chloride (PVC), into the precious. The material is initially coloured then small pieces are removed from the surface through a process of hand cut incisions and carved patterns. Transformed from its prosaic ‘natural’ state, this new material glitters with a play of light and reflection.
Materials: PVC tube - dyed, cellophane printing, cut, carved and heat fused layers. Lollypop sticks - paint + heat formed, silk thread + stainless steel wire.
