Brisbane-based artist Rachael Wellisch unifies different techniques with shades of natural indigo dye. Wellisch uses discarded, threadbare clothes and worn out bedsheets that undergo alchemical altercations to refabricate into sculptures, hand-made paper and installations. While the works may suggest abstractions of nature, such as rock sediment or vistas of water, the materials offer a view on the relationship between textile production, consumption and waste.
