Blue toile billabong
This Australian landscape has been mixed with a variation of the same scene covered with a lacy pattern by weaving the two image together to create a picture a little reminiscent of toile fabirc. Toile was a decorative pattern usually consisting of a single color from the mid-18th century, usually depicting a landscape or pastoral theme. I grew up surrounded by chintz patterns like toile, and my toile works are somewhat a reference to moving to Australia. People bring their own culture, history, their families hand me down fabrics and Grandma’s good china with them, to a new home.
