Her primary intention in this new work is to explore the potential of sourcing items and materials which have already exhausted a purpose. Beach debris, ghost ropes and baling twine feature in these creations. Many of the pieces exude an air of beauty and sadness. Human-created waste sometimes accidentally and sometimes deliberately finds its way into waterways and oceans. What Chrissy uses in her art is only a small portion of what she collects.

She combs local beaches for the marine litter. While the baling twine is sourced from safely discarded waste, the ghost ropes and debris wash aground on the local coastline, with potential to cause major environmental damage.

“It is such a feeling of satisfaction after the process of gathering, cleaning, sorting and creating.”

This exhibition is the culmination of periods of work throughout the past twelve months, both here in the Limestone Coast as well as on her travels to Queensland and back. She also has featured a collection of new ceramic pieces created whilst camping in the Central Highlands of Queensland.

This exhibition will be on show over the Christmas period.

Chrissy will invite the public to join her at the Gallery for conversation and afternoon tea on Sunday 9 January, 2022, from 1:00pm to 2:30pm.

“À Partir du Sol 2021” will be on show at the Port MacDonnell Community Complex, in the foyer to the Art Gallery from Thursday 2 December, 2021 through to Sunday 27 February, 2022.

This is not a free event.
