“Warm” is the perfect title for an artwork which celebrates that wonderful fibre, wool.
Lisa Kendall came up with the idea after talking with a local woolgrower, fibre artist Georgie Nicolson devised the patterns, the design was created by artist Lars Stenberg, and with the help of 200 knitters worldwide including Australia, the building blocks of this installation were created.
The idea is to raise awareness of the carbon footprint we create when, having forgotten how to warm ourselves up with wool, we switch on the extra heater instead! Think about the effects of our actions upon sustainability and choose to make our layers wool and reduce our dependency on fossil fuels for keeping us warm!
The exhibition is at the Art Gallery of Ballarat and continues until September 25, 2016
