Christine Appleby is a recent first-class honour graduate from the ANU school of Art and Design. Her practice evokes the colour, line, shape and texture found in natural settings. She is captivated by the inventive process and infinite possibilities of weaving. She uses her chosen media, weaving, to demonstrate the rhythms and transience of nature.
While there is predictability to the natural environment, her work reveals a randomness, an unsophisticated organisation and a degree of ambiguity. The memory and essence of her experience captured in her imagination and her responses evokes those experiences in visual form. She focuses on ideas of inconsistency, imperfection and irregularity, capturing the ephemeral qualities of the natural world.
