Lead Me to the Holy Mountain, 2016. Embroidered and needle-felted wool on linen.

This embroidered and needle-felted banner was the main work produced during a two-month residency at the Australian Tapestry Workshop in 2016. The text, which was initially found scrawled on a toilet door in a bar, is a fragment of a Psalm.

At the end of the residency period I exhibited this banner and several other small works in a space called Garden Shed Gallery (now defunct), located in a back garden in Northcote. As part of the exhibition I hand-tattooed drawings of rocks onto twelve people, over two days, in a work called Rock collection (and dispersion and dissolution).
