Paloma Concierta has lived in Japan and Peru but feels an empathy with the area around Lake Alexandrina. Her paternal grandfather and grandmother were sheep farmers in Milang, while on the other side of the ranges her maternal grandfather was an avid crafter of mid-century teak furniture.
Somewhere in between those two locations she arrived with '35 windings' 2016, an art work which saw here selected as a finalist in the 2017 SALA Festival 'City Rural Emerging Artist Award.' This work is a testament to her ability to repurpose teak and wool and it will be on display for the first time in full at the South Coast Regional Art Centre, Goolwa.
Concierta has a history of endangering local participation in her art works. She explores not only the lines of threads around objects in this way, but also the lines of language and light, of sound and photography, as they wrap their meanings around people and places.
