RESONANT TEXTILES 'Natural Histories - Anne Kelly and Cas Holmes in their collaboration 'Resonant Textiles', continue to develop work for both gallery and non-gallery spaces. We like to use discarded items, waste material no longer considered useful. Our work is informed by personal experience, places visited, the local landscape, old and forgotten textiles. Recycled materials and waste have a history and this is the focus for the work. Fabrics , found objects and papers are exchanged broken down, torn, and cut, and then re-assembled to create new textiles from old. Fragments and layers mark the passing of time, the rituals of making (cutting paper, gathering materials, machining, sewing) acting as part of the narrative of the work.
