Wrapped fibre sculptures

The Next Iteration by Kylie Walsh

Fibre artist Kylie Walsh will be taking over the window boxes of 107, with a new series of wrapped sculptural work.

Through a wrapping technique, a kind of ‘hybrid-weave’, Kylie creates geometric patterns with yarn. She is interested in the dynamic quality of yarn and the process by which she can transform the tactile pliable medium into a taut bold form, to graphic painterly effect.

The Next Iteration is an exploration of form, and a play on the process of repeating patterns. Moving away from the gallery wall into the third dimension, allows the wrapped form to be seen in full and enhances the work’s versatility. A sense of freedom and playfulness are at work in these small colourful, tactile sculptures, as they joyfully engage with each other in their various arrangements.

See Kylie’s wrapped sculptures on display 24/7 in the windows of 107’s creative space.

Details: Monday 1 October – Sunday 14 October; Opening night: Thursday 4 October, 6pm - 8pm.
