Lyra Burghaus: Wrapped up - Art Collector

Courtesty: the artist and WPCC, Dubbo

In 1960 Yves Klein created “Anthropometry”, in which models covered themselves with blue paint and printed their body imprints onto paper. Lyra Burghaus takes this seminal work as her inspiration and transports the use of these expressionistic markings onto her textile designs. An established textile designer, the German born Burghaus creates garments and corresponding photographs that explore issues of personal responsibility, body awareness and behaviour. Throughout the exhibition, Burghaus uses the colour blue as a symbol, an expression and as a medium.
