The Coalescence of Creation
An alternative environment of handcrafted wonder. Trees enveloped in brightly coloured yarns, a canopy of crochet circles letting light dapple through their bright colours to the woodland floor. Our need to create as beings is innate, in built, inescapable. Not only the human brain needs to make, create, build and nest, represented here are creatures who build their own environments. Homes crafted from twigs, leaves, silk and mud. Butterflies and caterpillars in their cocoons, various birds nesting, spider’s webs, squirrel’s drays, fox’s burrows, rabbit holes, ant nests. Amongst the brightly coloured trees creatures hide, knitted birds in their knitted nests, Crochet butterflies emerging from crochet cocoons, woven spiders sitting on their silken spun webs, knitted and woven flowers bloom all around.
In our lives we also weave threads of connection. Threads that join us all like a spiders web. Threads span from North, South, East and West, wrapping around the world and uniting here in this coalescent representation of world community. Numerous Artists, young and old, of many creeds, cultures and colours, coming together to create this alternate environment of colour, space and light to represent our world community. From within this world created from yarns, threads, silks and strings emerge colourful dancers who embody the threads of creation themselves dancing a human maypole dance of co-operation, co-existence and creation. The dance embodies life weaving between our fellow earth dwellers, creating ties that bind, close knit, apron strings. Our lives are colourful threads weaving together in an ever changing tapestry of community. Nature gave us all this instinct to build and create. Nature is in us. Nature is around us. We are Nature. We are Art. We are all equal. We are community. We are life.
