Transmutation:
1. the action of changing or the state of being changed into another form.
2. the change of some essential element into a superior form.

Materials used: donated vintage wool blankets, recycled silk saris and t-shirts, raw wool gift from by brother’s travel to Colombia, hand dyed and spun wools and parachute cord.

A yoga mat sized hooked ‘yarn painting’ (open framed to invite touch) speaks to the rewards of both personal ritual and communal practice as an antidote to other numbing habits, addictions and distractions.

This crafting ‘makes permanent’, not perfect, creating more ease and receptivity to adaptive growth, and new dimensions of perception and renewal.

In//Habit embodies a deep and universal rumbling, and an undeniable reckoning toward connection.

A tactile transmutation of shame to grace, fear to love, woe to wisdom.

 

Marina Dempster is a sculptural fibre artist, photographer and mentor whose crafting is a transmutation of materials, thoughts and emotions.
