Mahdi Chandler is passionate about colour and texture on cloth, her enthusiastic pursuit of old and new dyeing techniques motivated her to take a trip to Japan in 2013, where she immersed herself in the local textile culture, learning techniques that now greatly influence her work.
From her home & studio in Southern Tasmania, Mahdi enjoys views through native forests, across the D’Entrecasteaux Channel, over Bruny Island’s “Neck”, into the Tasman Sea to Tasman Island and beyond. The constantly changing colour and light of this environment provides Mahdi with endless inspiration for her textile and mixed media works.
Ultimately it is creating colours and working with pigments which satisfy Mahdi most. These glorious colours are then dropped onto beautiful natural surfaces such as silk, cotton, linen, wool; so creating Mahdi’s uniquely exquisite works of wearable art.
