New Scarves and Fabric Lengths
Wearable Art

Marie-Therese Wisniowski

New Scarves and Fabric Lengths
In October 2015 I was in Melbourne and visited Opendrawer in Camberwell. Robyn Steel-Stickland kindly invited me to create some new pieces for display/sale at Opendrawer. All of the pieces were themed on urban marks and mark marking wall imagery that I have reinterpreted and deconstructed. Various techniques were employed to create the items.

In early 2016, the new scarves and fabric lengths were displayed in the front window exhibition space. The pieces consisted of five silk scarves, four silk rayon velvet scarves, one rayon fabric length and two silk fabric lengths. Below are images of the works in-situ at Opendrawer as well as full and detail images of each piece. I hope you enjoy my wearable art.
