Earthly Threads

7 February - 3 March 2024


Billie Baker, Internalised, 2023

Billie Baker is a multidisciplinary artist currently creating on Bundjalung Country (the Northern Rivers region). Baker’s work oscillates between film, digital drawing, photography, weaving, painting and textiles, where acidic and saturated colour and ethereal mark-making couple to form dream-like interpretations of the human form and natural landscapes.

Earthly Threads explores the idea of reciprocity in the natural world, investigating the notion that our relationships with self parallel our relationships with the environment. Across a suite of textile works Baker reproduces patterns in nature through weaving, painting, sewing and photographic processes – organic shapes and lines combining to synthesise the scientific, topographic, mystical and erotic.
