Paper and textile-based works by KT Doyle
This exhibition explores plants cultivated in the Brisbane City Botanic Gardens during colonial botanist Walter Hill’s curatorship (1855–81), through a series of paper and textile-based works created by KT Doyle. The selection of plants were chosen by Doyle for their form, potential for patternmaking and the artistic merit of the botanical studies. Patternmaking is used in the letterpress and giclée prints, and embroidered textile works to create a new visual language based on these plants.
