KT Doyle has launched her latest exhibition at the Redland Art Gallery's intimate Capalaba venue.
Recollected Patterns: The botany of Walter Hill explores plants cultivated in the Brisbane City Botanic Gardens during colonial botanist Water Hill's curatorship (1855-1881), through a series of paper and textile works.
The selection of plants were chosen by Doyle for their form, potential for patternmaking, and the artistic merit of the botanical studies. Patternmaking is used in the letterpress and giclee prints, and embroidered textile works to create a new visual language based on these plants.
The show features all of the stunning black and white works from the original Collected Patterns exhibition, first held in March 2011 at Myrtle Street Studio, Brisbane, along with new work developed since then.
KT will be giving a special floor talk about the concept for the exhibition, the processes involved to create the works, and the selection of the plants.
