Fish Out of Water is an exhibition of the textile object work of NSW artist Dorothy Filshie. Dorothy uses hessian, calico, duck and artists’ canvas plastered with old-fashioned gesso made from rabbit skin glue and whiting powder to create her sculptural fish. Her work is dictated by a love of food, textiles and art. Each work is hollow and is made from a pattern by cutting shapes from suitable fabrics, stitching the pieces by hand or machine, then shaping and stiffening them into three dimensional forms.
Fish: extra large $142, large $126, medium $79, small/fishbones/starfish/barnacles $47
