Artist's Statement

'Flow' traces water from its source to use through images associated with use—from the creek to the land surface through pipes, hoses, tanks and taps. These are snapshots and remembrances from my childhood in Central Victoria where the summer days were long, hot and very dry and full of shifting irrigation pipes, moving garden hoses, swimming, drinking water and conserving energy.

Curator's Statement

Liz Williamson's work represents a radical departure from her previous weavings, which used water primarily as an agent in distressing her fabrics. For this exhibition she has turned back to the traditional form of tapestry, though mediated by a computer used for translating scanned images into a Jacquard loom. As elsewhere in this exhibition, photography re-emerges outside the darkroom. In this case, the varied shrinking properties of the fibres creates a webbed texture, highlighting their construction.
