The great themes of art and architecture are brought together in Vision in Motion, a major project by expatriate Australian artist Narelle Jubelin. Vision in Motion animates an Australian history of modernism, presenting a survey of Jubelin’s intricately sewn petit points of the past three decades, alongside newly commissioned works inspired by architecture and the built environment.

Vision in Motion presents a collage of Jubelin’s video, three-dimensional models and her distinguishing needlework, in a critical, and at times humorous, engagement with modernism in art and architecture. Also featured is Mirror Reflex, 2013, a work that highlights the continuing collaboration between Jubelin and artist Jacky Redgate.

Jacky Redgate is a Sydney-based artist who studied at the South Australian School of Art and Sydney College of the Arts. She has exhibited extensively nationally and internationally since the end of the 1970s, and teaches in the Faculty of Creative Arts, The University of Wollongong.
