Taranaki – Warp & Weft 2018

In the early days of colonialism the European women made ‘good’, repurposing flour bags with lace edging to make ‘home’. The men went out and built roads and fences to tame and contain the land. In this series, Diane explores the impact of Colonialism on the land through the filter of antique linen and lace.

Using a pinhole camera (a tin can) and photographic paper, Diane creates a paper negative and prints using archival inks and paper .

The 42 x 26cm prints are a limited edition of three.
