Marjorie Coleman: Lyrical Stitch

Celebrating the creative life and prolific stitched artwork of Western Australian artist Marjorie Coleman, ‘Lyrical Stitch’ showcases five decades of the artist’s work. Using contemporary stitch as an expressive medium, Coleman’s evocative practice represents her ideas and experiences, drawing on them to reveal concern for her local surroundings. The artist explains, ‘Whether we stitch or whether we hammer seems to be not as important as the fact we are giving shape to our sensibilities, colour to our insights.’
