All you knit is love

All you knit is love is the name of the yarn shop I frequented in Barcelona whilst on an Australia Council residency in Spain in 2010. It is an apt name for the body of work I produced in the same location, as it identifies some new and significant trajectories within my practice that were prompted by the experience of relocating our young family to a foreign country for three months.

In previous work I have investigated place, multiple histories and associated ecological issues. These inquiries continued in Spain, however, as a tourist, parent and artist I also began to examine the experience of place with a more personal and maternal lens. As a result of this, some domestic crafts have surfaced in my practice. I became an obsessive knitter in Spain and I have also begun stitching on my photographic imagery.
