Amelia Skelton is a multidisciplinary artist, living and working on Gadigal land (Sydney, Australia). Working at the intersection of quiltmaking, sculpture and assemblage, Amelia Skelton’s practice is a meditation on the complexity of textiles; their abundance, familiarity, significance and inextricable political implications. Adopting a methodology of working slowly and critically with and through materials, Skelton explores how textiles can serve as a lens to comprehend aspects of our world, from personal memory and history to epoch-defining phenomena like waste and capitalism. Using a combination of traditional and expanded quiltmaking including patchworking, layering and assemblage, Skelton brings to the forefront these qualities and potentialities inherent in textiles.
