Artist Statement: 

This is a portrait of Australian artist Julie Ryder. In recent years Julie has been researching Victorian albums of seaweed collections. They are much sought after by museums and specialist collectors. Julie also collects seaweed making intricate and delicate artworks related to these fascinating plant structures. Her knowledge is extensive. I have accompanied Julie collecting along the southern coastline of New South Wales. This work reflects the delicacy of seaweeds by machine stitching on soluble fabric. This leaves lace-like tracery. As well I am documenting Julie’s thought processes that may be going through while she is on the beach.


Available for shipment or collection from 25 October 2022.
