Edith Rewa : Field Trip
Edith studied Bachelor of Arts (Textile Design) (screenprinting major) at RMIT, Melbourne with a brief sojourn to the Estonian Academy of the Arts. A job at a commercial print design studio took her to Sydney for 3 years before she moved to the Blue Mountains to work full time on her head scarf label ‘’Fossick’’, ''Field Trip'' and freelance Illustration/design work. Edith is now based in Brisbane, QLD.
'Field Trip exhibits a world I found to be alive and erupting with colour, pattern and incredible plant peculiarities.
In a series of trips in 2016 I learned about desert places previously unknown to me, illustrating my way into an Australian landscape through the flora and fauna.
These silk scarves push the ‘Eremophila neglectas' of our plantscape into the spotlight, challenging the notion that ‘there is nothing out there’, noticing and applauding our arid land plants.
Fragments only, but I hope they take you there.
They are illustrated, printed and made in Australia.'
