Wendy Sysouphat, South Australia Member Since April 2012 Artist Statement I am an Australian artist, currently living and working in South Australia. My artworks are inspired and informed by the exquisite colours, the captivating patterns, and the wonderful textures and sculptural qualities of nature and the environment. The works celebrate the intricacies and splendour of the natural world. Factual information, often relating to the role played by humans as part of nature, is layered into many of my works, and the complex and delicate inter-relationships that exist within the living world are frequently highlighted. Drawing, watercolour, textile art, natural fibre basketry, and lino printing are among my chosen media. Website: www.wendysysouphatgallery.com Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
