Louise Weaver on nature, feminsim and crocheting animals forms – INTERVIEW: Art Guide Australia
With a practice spanning three decades, Louise Weaver is a Melbourne-based artist who works across painting, printmaking, sculpture, installation, sound and photography. Yet it’s for her sculptures of meticulously crochet encased animal forms and branches—which she began developing in the 1990s—that she has become most well-known. In light of her current survey exhibition Between appearances: the art of Louise Weaver at Buxton Contemporary, Weaver talks through her process, how gender informs her work, and what nature and culture mean to her.
