House of Hope is a contemporary textile art exhibition by Northern NSW artist Susan Fell-McLean. With no previous parallels, House of Hope questions our everyday use of fabrics coloured by petro chemicals inthree installations of contemporary shibori textiles. The exhibition repositions textiles as an extension of sculpture, informed by critical theory and celebrates seven selected eucalypt species in the dyeing of silk and wool, expressing globally unique insights and highlighting the iconic nature of eucalypts.
