Inheritance demonstrates the fragile relationship humans have with the natural environment using plant materials and tree sap as media. We are increasingly aware of this as we suffer the repercussions of global warming. Inheritance reflects the human responsibility for the environment, diversity of faiths and cultures, our united dependency and our basic human right for healthy water, air and country.
Aly de Groot is an independent fibre artist influenced by the diverse culture and intense climate and landscape of the Northern Territory. Learning from traditional and contemporary basket makers and fibre artists from Australia and overseas, de Groot’s work reflects the social, political and personal. It aims to mourn the overlooked and celebrate the discarded. In 2005 she was one of nine Australian artists selected to exhibit at Talente, the International Art and Design Fair in Munich and was the recipient of the Freedman Foundation Travelling Scholarship.
