She does lots of work that keeps her away from simple things in life. Here are a few highlights from the last decade of her ongoing work:

Pomegranate - Dir. R. Walls, 2017

still from Pomegranate

Pomegranate is an abstract animation in response to the Egyptian applique form, Khayamiya. It has exhibited in HRGallop Gallery Wagga Wagga, and The Armory Sydney.

An exploration of the contrast between appliqué and bricolage in creation of Khayamiya, Pomegranate focuses on a common pattern within the form, repeating within 8 geometric sections. The work also considers the contrast between weaving and sewing as creative activities: Pomegranate attempts to return the khayamiya to a point of origin, artificially reuniting artifact with raw materials. 


Obsessive Possessives - Documentary, Dir. L. Achille, 2012

The film itself has been made available online for viewing by the Director, Louisa Achille. Check it out on Vimeo!
