Gold in Kalgoorlie - 125 year anniversary - "Golden Yarn"
"Golden Yarn" is my entry for the Kalgoorlie Boulder Art awards 2018 to celebrate the 125th anniversary of the discovery of Gold by Paddy Hannan, Tom Flanagan and Dan Shea.
"Golden Yarn" is a play on words and has been created in Textiles: Felt, wool, acrylic yarn and acrylic paint on 640gm watercolour paper.
It depicts the discovery of gold with a copy of Paddy Hannon's miner's right to the present day of the "Super Pit".
It's been a golden tale for Kalgoorlie - Boulder
The final touch is a replica of a golden nugget made from gold leaf cover sea sponge.
Framed in a deep set natural wood frame.
On display in Kalgoorlie from Friday 21 Sept 2018
