|Gertrude Street artist Starlie Geikie has an exhibition opening on 22 June that uses embroidery and quilting to explore the relationship between formalism and the body. Here's a description:|
Geikie’s practice typically deconstructs the parameters that divide these art forms, revealing concerns shared by both. These include the creation of emotional immediacy and the activation of psychological space. In her most recent works she has been exploring the relationship between formalism and the body, creating tessellated ponchos and quilts that operate as physical structures.
