Exhibition: ‘Trust Me I’m an Artist’. Recent works by Fiona Gavino on show from March 13 – April 6. Painted Tree Gallery, Northcliffe.
The artist Fiona Gavino strives to use basket making materials and techniques in new and innovative ways to create sculpture, installation, video and printmaking. As an artist she pushes the boundaries of what basketry can physically do and say, permitting broader conversations across various cultures, with the hope of creating socially inclusive art.
Fiona Gavino is a fibre artist, with decades of experience, having exhibited both nationally and internationally.
In Trust Me, I’m An Artist, Gavino presents a body of works on paper made using hand woven grass lettering formed into phrases that are hunted, gathered and collected across numerous platforms and through conversations with just about anybody.
