Description - Riverland: Yvonne Koolmatrie by Koolmatrie, Yvonne
Riverland - Yvonne Koolmatrie charts the decades-long practice of the renowned Ngarrindjeri weaver. Embedded in the traditions of Ngarrindjeri culture and animated by her boundless imagination, Koolmatrie's elegant woven forms are created using the labour-intensive process of hand-harvested native river sedge from the banks of the Murray River. It charts her development as an artist, pays homage to other Aboriginal artists as her key influences, outlines her commitment to passing on knowledge and demonstrates how Koolmatrie's work has brought the craft practice of her people into the context of contemporary art. With essays by esteemed curators Nici Cumpston, John Kean and Hetti Perkins, an autobiographical text by the artist and an extensive bibliography, Riverland is a landmark publication honouring the pioneering work of Yvonne Koolmatrie.
