2005 Transit

Transit was Filomena Coppola’s first exhibition with Dickerson Gallery in Melbourne in 2005. In this work fabric is represented a continuous thread – through repetition this thread creates a new fabric. This fabric texture is used in the work as back ground, wrapped object, grided surfaces and billowing quilted forms. It also alludes to fabric as a surface that we use to cover ourselves and. Outwardly it is an identity and inwardly it is intimate – close to the body, covering the skin. Some of the work from Transit was also shown in a solo exhibition titled Seam at Rosemont College in Philadelphia, USA .
