"I remember the Murray River running strong and majestic with its many paddle steamers and their barges negotiating the river bends. Also in times of flood. Now I see degradation and despair as drought and poor water management starve the river. But there is still beauty in the colours and textures as it struggles to survive around a bend in the river. "

[Yvonne Line, 2017]


Technique: Cut and placed raw edged pieces hand sewn onto a backing with rough stitching using a thick thread. Screen printed visuals from a very old 'Australiana’ calendar, glue painted to quilt. Hand finished.
