Under Foot exhibition

This wonderful exhibition by Mary Elizabeth Barron is currently showing at the Redland Art Gallery, Capalaba near Brisbane and is well worth visiting. Mary uses natural plant fibres and debris usually found in the compost bin or under foot, so the exhibition is well titled. Using papermaking and basketry techniques Mary has transformed these humble materials into a number of series, that are on display in this beautiful space
Shrine to nature are displayed on one of the white walls and the lighting heightens the homage to nature with secondary shadows reinforcing the total effect of a mass display.
The exhibition continues until December 4. Mary is standing in front of the Under Foot series of wall hangings. See a video of her online on ABC Open.
