Knit Chatlines #1 - Neon original

Digital machine knitted canvas using six colours of merino wool yarn. 2.4m x 1.3m. 2004

The stereotypes that heavily shroud knitting are the main source of inspiration for this series of tongue-in-check, large-scale, retro knitted artworks. However, its darker side touches upon feminist issues, sexuality, gender and the fashionability of knitting and textile art.

Knit Chatlines #2 - Grey/Pink

Digital machine knitted canvas using six colours of merino wool yarn. 2.4m x 1.3m. 2005.

Knit Chatlines 2 was created from a photograph taken of the first Chatlines canvas. The image was then digitally altered and knitted all over again. I love the distortion in this method. Almost like a Chinese whispers effect and the visualization of fragmented memories.

Overlooked - The Knitted Radiator

9ft high stainless steel knitted radiator.

The Interactive Radiator

Contemporary slender mixed with industrial chic.

One of the main aims of this project was to blur the lines between art and function.

A radiator and a piece of knitting both serve us the same function, to keep us warm, but both are often overlooked and perceived as mundane. By combining the two we create something that will not go unnoticed the oversized Knitted steel Radiator Overlooked

Overlooked project was sponsored by Tubela Engineering.
