Lawrence is principally a tapestry artist. Tapestry weaving in Australia is limited to a small group of practitioners, many of whom were influenced by the international interest in hand-woven textiles and in the crafts generally, which burgeoned in Australia during the 1970s. Although some weavers in Australia follow the long-established historical precedent of adapting paintings by well-known artists to the medium, Lawrence, and others like her, design and weave their tapestries themselves. She draws, paints, and takes photographs, and it is from this bank of images that she selects what will work on the very different scale of the loom.

The Handbook of Textile Culture

In recent years, the study of textiles and culture has become a dynamic field of scholarship, reflecting new global, material and technological possibilities. This is the first handbook of specially commissioned essays to provide a guide to the major strands of critical work around textiles past and present and to draw upon the work of artists and designers as well as researchers in textiles studies.

Fashion Curating

As the practice of fashion curation extends into commercial galleries, public and retail spaces, and even to the individual self, professional concepts of 'curating' are undergoing rapid change. Today, everyone is seemingly able to 'curate', but where does this leave the traditional understanding of curation as clothing collected and displayed in a museum? This thought-provoking volume explores the practice of fashion curating in the 21st century, bridging the gap between methods of display and notions of 'the curatorial' in fashion exhibitions, commercial settings, and the virtual world. From fashion's earliest forays into the museum to creative collaborations between luxury fashion brands ...

In the Middle

The French philosopher Gilles Deleuze remarked in his book Negotiations that things and thoughts advance or grow out from the middle, and thats where you have to get to work, thats where everything unfolds. This prompts the question, How does an artist get to work in the middle of a process that is continuously becoming? The thesis is an unfolding narrative of the authors attempt to experientially answer the question by way of an art practice, leading to an examination of the issue of freedomfreedom from attachments and freedom to create new possibilities for all. The thesis offers a view that art practice, exploring ways to break free from the bondage of the mind, moments of freedom from oneself, is spiritual practice, is life practice.
