Recoiling is a new site-sensitive installation, featuring hand-braided rope bound around a tree trunk. The spiraling textiles lead the viewers' gaze up and away into branches and leaves, reaching towards the sky. These weighty tactile materials suggest medieval fairy-tale connotations within its menacing snake-like choking coils.
Recoiling is situated at Stonehurst Cedar Creek Cellar Door as part of
Sculpture in the Vineyards 2009, on the Wollombi Wine Trail in the Hunter Valley NSW.
