Where: Mint Gallery
When: Friday 17 April, 5pm
Mint Gallery is proud to present the latest works from artist Desi Liversage in her show titled Needle Doodle.
An accomplished textile artist, Desi has exhibited her unique pieces widely in New Zealand and internationally. The works in Needle Doodle evolved during the course of a difficult six months for the artist and became a form of contemplative meditation.
The pieces present a series of random thoughts and scribbles stitched onto palimpsests of bundled fabrics, many of them previously worn by the artist and her friends. Implicit in these works is the contradiction between fleeting thoughts and the slow execution involved in capturing them; the commonality being obsessiveness.
