Aly de Groot is an award winning contemporary fibre artist from Darwin, Northern Australia who takes the tradition of basket-making into exciting new places. Ghost net ropes and fishing line have been imortalised in bronze as a series of monumental woven public sculptures in idyllic seaside locations across her hometown in Darwin, including a pair of large dancing Jellyfish at East Point. Her distinctive artworks and jewelery designs stress the importance of celebrating and protecting the animals and plants prevalent in Northern Australia , many of which, like the jellyfish, are often hidden and dangerous, but always beautiful.
