Artist

Annette Davis

Description

In her solo exhibition, Annette Davis explores ideas of connection and holding on.

Her curiosity about trees growing from rocky crevices and coastal shrubs clinging to windswept granite boulders was her starting point. Inspired by nature’s will to survive, Annette has used materials and techniques associated with rural life to create this new body of work.

The first step in her creative process involved the materials having a conversation with nature, either through natural dyeing, frottage or being buried under leaves for extended periods. Using techniques of knotting, looping, stitching, and twisting, these raw materials of canvas, hessian, cloth, paper, rope and wire have been transformed into artworks which express connection to place.

Annette Davis is an artist and curator from Albany who is interested in landscape and history. Each year she stays near the Murchison River in the mid-west for extended periods, where she immerses herself and her materials in nature.
