Description

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. Marine debris including ghost nets and fishing line have been imortalised in bronze as a series of monumental woven  public sculptures in idyllic seaside locations across Darwin, including a pair of large dancing Jellyfish at East Point, A Mother and Calf Dugong at Dripstone Cliffs and a series of migratory shore birds at Lee 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 .
