(Guest Artist Patrick Hamilton)
Catherine Tipping and guest artist Patrick Hamilton are interested in traditional craft processes and re-contextualizing them into the culture of now via contemporary image making. ‘Overneath’ explores the tension between the labor-intensive character of stitching and the complexities of digital image making. Tipping is based in Melbourne and has exhibited locally and in Vancouver. She works in needlepoint on canvas, representing digital images. Digital pixels, or 0s and 1s, will be articulated in needlepoint long stitch. They demonstrate a parallel between digital imagery and tapestry, in their mutual ‘representation’ of reality as removed from the original three-dimensional subject.
