Abstract

My research addresses the development of Modernism in Australia within the
period c.1850 - 1930. The project focuses on the contribution made to this
development by women through domestic decoration; and investigates the creative
input of domestic needlework.
The research examines historical issues which were paramount to the emergence of
Modernism led by women; defines those issues as they relate to Australian women
artists; and discusses this Australian version of Modernism against a backdrop of
European Modernism.
The visual component of my work explores through the medium of textile the irony
of the relationship between yesterday's handmade needlework ethos and
contemporary textile design and machine manufacturing processes.
