Fearless | Flossie Peitsch

Flossie Peitsch’s textile practice is informed by the history of women’s craft work, particularly the quilting traditions passed down through the matrilineal generations of her family. Her tapestry weavings tackle subjects such as gender, ageism, spirituality, displacement and her personal experience as an immigrant in a new country.

Fearless brings together a body of work created over the past seven years, informed by her experiences as an educator in very remote Indigenous communities and her close familial relationships, as one of four sisters. Fearless addresses the struggle, transformation and ultimately the calm of lives lived to the full; weaving together the ordinary and extraordinary experiences of our contemporary social lives.
