Meredith Woolnough - visual artist
Australian Meredith Woolnough is a visual artist and teacher based in Newcastle, Australia who loves to explore the natural world through a unique form of sculptural embroidery that mimic delicate the forms of nature She is inspired by the patterns, structures and shapes found in plants, coral, cells and shells.
Her embroideries depict the frameworks of the various veining systems found in nature to create work that explores the balance, harmony and connectivity of life on Earth and representing both the robust beauty and the elegant fragility of life.
“The more I work with natural forms, the more I find myself drawn into the science of nature. I am fascinated by the way things are built, the way they grow and function. I often find myself marvelling at the perfection of a single leaf or the phenomenal beauty of a coral reef and it can be quite overwhelming at times, almost spiritual.”
