I recently wrote a small text for the exhibition Walking Upstream Waterways of the Illawarra, currently on at the Wollongong Art Gallery in New South Wales, Australia. You can read it here: INDIGENOUS PERSPECTIVES ON WOTI: SOME ARCHIVAL RESEARCH
I just launched a Pozible campaign to raise funds for an upcoming research trip. 40 percent of the proceeds will be donated to the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre.

I hope you are as excited by my project as I am!!
Some photographs of works in the group exhibition I am part of. Currently on show at the Australian Tapestry Workshop in Melbourne.

A few days ago I spent the day at Big Fag Press with Diego Bonetto printing a new edition of the Rubans prints I started in Paris early last year. This next set is part of a fundraiser project I will be launching very soon, combining my passion for pattern and print with my ever-evolving interest in the empowerment of migrant women through making. More info. coming soon so keep your eyes posted!
This work is finally done and dusted. Well… more so washed and hanging out to dry on the clothes line!
It’ll soon be framed then on its way to the Australian Tapestry Workshop in Melbourne for the annual AIR exhibtion which opens in May.
This piece is such a labour of love. Almost a year in the making and made entirely from off cuts from mum’s extensive collection of fabric.
Finally on instagram! Yep, you guessed it, that’s me @clementineamelia.
Here’s a pic. from my most recent post. Me and RFK at the Corita Kent exhibition at the Ian Potter Museum of Art, Melbourne.
So go on, subscribe. AND…. go and see Sister Corita’s Summer of Love!
I just got back from a fun and productive artist residency with Big Fag Press at Bundanon Trust, which is part of the Boyd estate and situated not too far from Nowra (a few hours drive south of Sydney). Bundanon is a beautiful and peaceful haven with kangaroos, wombats, goannas, cows and snakes a plenty. What a lucky odd bunch of artists we are to have had the opportunity to trade our city lives for a few valuable days of collaborative country adventures.
