Ornamental brings together the work of six female artists whose work centres around themes of decoration, pattern and repetition.  The exhibition aims to challenge traditional perceptions of the decorative in a fine art context and open up a wider discourse about gender, politics and the validity of decoration in the broader schema of contemporary art today.  The artists’ works are not defined or constrained within traditional media and includes diverse processes such as stitching, sewing, embroidery, cutting, collage, folding and draping.
