BIO

Home :: Gallery :: Bio :: Contact :: Workshops

With what could have been hundreds of kilometres of fencing draped over the Australian landscape, Kate de Jude weaves works of art. "Wire, pre-optic fibre, has been symbolic of power and communication and is a natural medium for me as an artist."
