In Green Asylum artist Charlotte Haywood explores multi-modalities of landscape, culture and language and their meaning within Australia now. Materiality and tactility are key in these large scale tapestry weavings which embody cultural practices, rites, and rituals that are symbolic of various forms of living.
Charlotte Haywood is an interdisciplinary artist that explores themes and practices from pop to the primordial, experimenting between the tactile and the digital. A respected contemporary textile artist this significant textile work sets the scene as we lead into the WCTA season for 2019.
