Jessie Deane

This is Jessie Deane’s piece, “Maersk Containers” which was shortlisted for the inaugural 2015 Victoria Craft Award – beautiful stitching and wonderful colours.

Jessie Deane is a textile artist from Yarraville in Melbourne’s west. She recently won the 2014 Melbourne Fringe Best Visual Arts Award for her exhibition, ‘(Thr)edifice’ and her latest exhibition, ‘Stitching Spotswood’, is currently showing at the Duchess of Spotswood. “My work captures, in thread, the richness I find in the decaying urban facades and streetscapes of Melbourne’s west. Stitch-by-stitch, in vibrant colour, I recreate these abandoned, fading or forgotten structures that are for me, objects of beauty.” You can view more of her work here.
