Indulgence: Textiles by Kay Faulkner

In her Indulgence exhibition, Kay Faulkner's sumptuous purple chocolate wrappers have been stripped and woven together with plush, dark brown fibres to become wearable wraps.

The benefits of spoiling oneself - and using wrappers for wraps - are explored and found in Indulgence.

Using an eight or 24 shaft loom, Faulkner hand-weaves the often hand-dyed yarn or item, creating wearable garments: a dress, a kimono, a traveller's vest and, predominantly, wraps. At first glance, this is a collection of work that appears to be about.... weaving. But, like layers of ingredients in a chocolate bar, there is more to discover the deeper one chooses to explore.

Indulgence is the outcome of an Arts Queensland grant awarded to Faulkner in mid-2005 to create and promote a series of wraps and garments in both traditional and non-traditional yarns.

Kay Faulkner is a nationally and internationally reputed specialist in hand-woven textiles. She has won numerous awards and achieved published recognition for her work.

This exhibition has been supported by Cadbury and the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland.
