Thomas C. Chung

Thomas C. Chung is changing the perception of knitting as grandma’s hobby with these incredible hand knit and crocheted sculptures. The Chinese-Australian artist completed his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree at the College of Fine Arts at the University of New South Wales. His work includes soft sculpture, photography and installation usually hand made and labor intensive.  He currently works between Australia and Scandinavia.  On an interview on Knotwe he explains how he got interested in knitting:  

“I started knitting in Scandinavia several years ago.Out of necessity (traveling away from Australia), I needed a material which could literally carry the narrative of my story. Knitting & crocheting fitted all of the things I required out of this (conceptually & practically), so thankfully I eventually got the hang of it.”

Shona Wilson


Australian sculptor Shona Wilson has created these intricate sculptural assemblages with found natural materials.  Her ephemeral artworks are born out of a desire to open up creatively and spiritually.  Nature is her inspiration of which she says:

“The repetitive use of Nature’s detritus brings me closer to understanding the world we share. The materials themselves are storehouses of knowledge and information. They act as ‘keys’, unlocking doors to memory, science, history and imagination… For the past 20 years my work has been an invitation to marvel and wonder at the details within nature which I have presented predominantly through sculptural assemblages.”
