Meg Amelia Tennant

RMIT Bachelor of Textiles (Design)

‘A Maximalist Escape’ is heavily inspired by my hometown, Coffs Harbour. Collaging a mix of mediums and upcycling spare materials, I have explored texture and manipulated materials to create a visual, as well as sensory experience of Coffs Harbours subtropical landscape. My design style works within the maximalist handwriting, featuring a combination of abstract and painterly motifs that depicts the connectedness between the rainforest and the sea within Coffs. Taking inspiration from artists who reside in northern NSW; Julia Vanderbyl and Meg Walters, has allowed me to explore fluidity within my work and adopt an environmental colour palette.
