Jenni Kemarre Martiniello, Yellow Rushes Fish Basket #2, 2017, hot blown and cold-worked glass with canes

“I have concentrated on the incredibly beautiful forms of traditional woven eel traps, fish traps, fish scoops and dillibags, seeking to evoke the interplay of light and form found in those objects, and in so doing, create contemporary glass works which are also objects of cultural as well as artistic significance.” – JENNI KEMARRE MARTINIELLO
Freshwater Saltwater Weave is an exhibition of glass works at Kluge-Ruhe Aboriginal Art Collection by contemporary urban-based Arrernte artist Jenni Kemarre Martiniello. Her works in hot blown glass, cold-worked glass and canes are inspired by the aesthetics of Aboriginal woven forms, such as dilly bags, eel traps, fish traps and fish scoops.
Martiniello will be visiting Kluge-Ruhe as a resident artist September 15 – October 15, 2018.
