Book Living Treasures: Masters of Australian Craft \ Liz Williamson: Textiles
Liz Williamson: Textiles tells the story of this influential weaver’s search to understand textile traditions in relation to her own life and interests, and then interpret those experiences, through her woven cloth, into new ideas and forms. Known for her continuing series of handwoven wraps, scarves and blankets, with their distinctive textures and colours, Williamson had originally anticipated a career as a designer of textiles for industry. In recent years she has expanded her interests to develop several series of large jacquard-woven works, and now wearables, where she uses both computer programs and handweaving technologies to weave photographic images into the cloth.
Liz Williamson is an internationally acclaimed textile artist who began weaving in the late 1970s. Williamson’s work is represented in most major public collections in Australia including the National Gallery of Australia, the National Gallery of Victoria and the Powerhouse Museum.
This beautifully designed book is the fourth in ADC’s Living Treasures: Masters of Australian Craft series and is a must have for anyone with an interest in textiles.
