About the Artwork

The Flora and Fauna providing the structure to this body of work are offered a platform to express the stories and Spirit of lives once lived. They orchestrate movement and configuration through their individual boundaries and qualities; tendrils unfurling to emerge as entangled effigies. May they illustrate and illuminate the vital connections and relations allowing us to function and survive amidst the Living World. 

 As a Weaver, the desire to mend the   holes torn  throughout the tapestry     of humanity feels fated. To contribute     to the reconstruction of how we think,   interact, and exist with and within   Nature, quells the pressure from   mortal institutions as we know them.

About the Artist:

Lydia graduated a Fibre Major with a BFA from Alberta University of the Arts, in 2014. She then relocated back home to the Kootenays, where she practiced and taught until moving to Vancouver Island in 2018. Here she has found renewed inspiration and continues to deepen her research and creation. As a Weaver, Lydia recognises her practice strongly reflects connection. To home, to passing time, to relations through generations. She finds comfort in knowing this resonates within the audience, and appreciates the responsibility of fostering these relationships.
