'Too Hard Basket' by aly de groot.

'Too Hard Basket' by aly de groot.

Woven Sculptural Works created by contemporary fibre artist Aly de Groot celebrate the discarded and overlooked, and question the accepted norm of mass consumerism in a plastic society.


Influenced by the diversity of cultures and the intensity of climate and landscape in her hometown, Darwin, she harvests and prepares plant materials found in her surrounding environment to create contemporary baskets, sculptures and wearable art.

Her recent work has seen her translating basket making techniques with new materials such as recycled fishing net, car tyre and fishing line as well as taking her weavings into the photographic darkroom to make abstract images of her woven objects.

Aly exhibits regularly throughout Darwin and has shown her work nationally and internationally.

heartening to find textiles in art rather than just craft
