Diana Wood Conroy

An Archaeology of Woven Tapestry

An Archaeology of Woven Tapestry brings together woven tapestries, drawings and paintings drawn from public and private collections from fifty years of Diana Wood Conroy’s life as an artist.

Travelling widely in Europe, she is now deeply embedded in the country of the Illawarra. Combining a passion for the earth, threads and colours of the Australian land in grids of pattern, her loving study of ancient archaeology in Cyprus and Greece informs her imagery. The past is a dark mirror to the present, foretelling our society’s fragmentation, but the tactile and imaginative process of weaving offers clues for survival.
