Cristina Beth: Dreamtime

August 13, 2016 @ 2:00 pm - August 31, 2016 @ 3:00 pm

Paintings and printed works by Cristina Beth. There is something very familiar about these vintage and nostalgic patterns. Inspired by fabric fragments collected from abandoned mattresses, they offer a corridor to memories and carry our imagined scenarios, memories, facts and emotions embedded deep within their surfaces.

The traces of repetitive thread lines echo the rhythm and rituals of everyday life and passage of time. An integration and meditation of breath occurs. Echoes between life and secret lingerings. Between memories, dialogue and silence. Each individual thread is carefully rendered in isolation yet belongs to the continuum of the whole structure.

Snippets of our busy lives gather like whispers and float out from under the blankets and onto the walls. The fabric carries within it the essence of our human fragility and becomes a confessional container for all life’s dramas and emotions.

Opening Saturday 13 August, 2pm to 3.30pm.
