Georgie Brunmayr – 'The Long Ellipses', 2023
Ellipses series is a celebration of local industry and small-scale textile manufacturing. To create the work, Brunmayr worked closely with a local mattress manufacturer, pairing her technical-weave material with their specialist quilting processes. The resulting fabric, featuring geometric embroidery, has been upholstered onto large, semi-functional forms inviting playful engagement – inviting the viewer to touch, sit on and play with the works. The series is an expression of the technical complexities used within contemporary textile production and makes attribution to the numerous hands, processes, and minds within the local industry. For Brunmayr, the installation celebrates the artistry of weaving, knitting and quilting and fosters a deep sense of collaboration and shared creativity.
