Swathe by Cara Johnson @ Sofitel Melbourne on Collins

  • Sofitel Melbourne on Collins 25 Collins St Melbourne, VIC 3000 Australia (map)

Cara Johnson was the recipient of the Craft Victoria's Fresh! Sofitel Emerging Craft Practitioner's Award (2017). She is a Victorian based craftsperson working primarily in jewellery and related sculptural forms.

The new works in this exhibition Swathe reflect and lament on relationships to individual trees, ideas which have unfolded through Cara's consideration of how a human hand can either support or devastate the life of a tree. She is interested in how jewellery and artefacts can function within the landscape, collaborating with nature and in narrating connections between material, nature and herself.
