Karen Stone's MVA mid candidature exhibition
paper - pulp painting/papermaking
"This exhibition is an experiment in the visual translation of memories and feelings of home,
through the use of domestic floral patterns. The
pulp paintings are made with fibres sourced
from donated or found recycled clothing, which
carry the stories from their previous owners into
my story of home. Bringing the past into the
present asks the question "what does home
mean to me?" as a single, older, non-homeowning
woman in contemporary Australian
society and culture?"
