Kathy Landvogt, Margaret Landvogt & Lorena Carrington

Conversing in Colour 

A collaboration between Kathy Landvogt (contemporary textiles), Margaret Landvogt (pastel landscapes) and Lorena Carrington (photography). 

Conversing in Colour brings together three artists using three different mediums in a ‘call and response’ process. Margaret Landvogt’s glowing desert landscapes inspire her daughter Kathy to echo the colours and forms in wire weavings, and Lorena Carrington creates new visions in close-up images of the fine wire details. The conversation creates counterpoints that highlight the qualities of each medium and the uniqueness of each artist’s eye.  

This collaborative exhibition will be held in Kathy’s Castlemaine studio where her other recent works and wire weaving methods can be viewed. 

Kathy Landvogt probes everyday human experiences and relationships through personal story-telling and metaphor, informed by feminist understandings. While collage, painting and drawing dominate her earlier work, current investigations include three-dimensional objects and a longstanding interest in fibre crafts where the process of making itself carries part of the meaning. Her most recent work uses knitting and weaving techniques to create lacy structures in wire. Kathy is an active member of The Art Room (Footscray) community and the Naarm Textile Collective. 

Lorena Carrington is a photographer and book illustrator based in regional Victoria.  She also exhibits her work and has held shows at many leading art galleries in Australia. She presents at literary and arts festivals and visits schools and libraries to give talks and hold workshops on photography, illustration, books and story. She is the recipient of the 2020 Australian Fairy Tale Society award, for her outstanding contribution to the field of Australian Fairy Tales.”  

Margaret Landvogt was born in Cornwall England in a countryside full of wildflowers and verdant hills. She studied at Plymouth Art School until 1949 when she emigrated to Australia. Marriage, children, and then a career as an art teacher followed, and she finally became a full-time artist exploring various media in the mid-1980’s. In 1986 a visit to Central Australia converted her to pastel. For the past 30 years, her passion as an artist has been the unique Australian bush. Margaret has had over 20 solo and group exhibitions and in recent years has often used her art to fund-raise in support of environmental causes.
