Casey Gray

My art practice involves an extensive investigation and exploration of the material qualities of textiles. My major artwork expands the function of lace and embroidery beyond their traditional use. In my view, the labour and time invested in the process of making a work of art is equally important to the objects that result from these efforts. Through the manipulation of thread to create three-dimensional forms, the work aims to enable a space for the viewer to reflect upon the limitations and possibilities of common materials and making processes. In this sense, my artwork acts as a catalyst for thinking about the importance of creative expression.
