Australian artist Jacqui Fink’s work is embedded in the world of wool in all its manifestations – from developing luxury yarns for hand knitting to the creation of massive scale, felted wool installations for residential, hospitality and commercial spaces the world over.
With a reputation as game-changer, for re-inventing how wool is perceived both within the world of traditional knitters and to a broader creative community – be it a museum, gallery, residential or restaurant space - her work serves to remind us of the power of wool’s versatility and longevity. Especially when delivered with her distinct combinations of scale and intricacy, the impact of raw or coloured wools, and the textures of mesmerising repetition.
Each piece is utterly bespoke, determined by the commissioning brief, its purpose and its context. These collaborative installations with interior designers and architects often involve resolving complex issues of engineering, technology and maintenance. This carefully considered creative process has to deliver the impact of an awesome work with the practicalities of installation that make it fit for purpose.
