Ann Ryan: La Pouffe

Exhibition and Shows

9 Aug 2022 to 27 Aug 2022 Once Only Event

Ann Ryan joined the Flinders Lane Gallery stable after winning the 2020 Exploration Emerging Artist Award for her meticulous and quirky fabric collages. In her second solo with the gallery, Ryan explores the exotic history of fashion – from 18th century hairstyles, to 60s and 70s fabric designs. Full of dream-like possibility, Ryan’s vibrant and highly detailed images take the viewer on a truly joyful journey of memorabilia and imagination.

For Ryan the creative process starts with hunting and gathering, creative conversations with friends, and often happy accidents too. While gleaning interesting fabrics and discarded items from others, she finds endless inspiration in the textures, prints or colours she collects. Through the act of cutting, folding and stitching, the everyday or overlooked morphs into something sumptuous and full of beauty.

Explore this exhibition either in the gallery space or online via a virtual tour.
