2013 GALLIPOLI ART PRIZE FINALIST

"The Knitting Bee" was selected as a finalist in the 2013 Gallipoli Art Prize.

The Knitting Bee

"The Knitting Bee" - Watercolour - size: 22 x 71 cm.

Artist's Statement:

“The Knitting Bee was inspired by a visit to the Australian War Memorial where I saw a little booklet on how to knit two socks at the same time. 

During World War 1, women knitted socks for the soldiers at the front and the Lady Mayoress’s Patriotic League in Melbourne was one of the first volunteer organisations to do this. As well as knitting socks, the ladies of the League packed parcels for the servicemen containing plum puddings, tobacco, cakes, condensed milk, newspapers and biscuits.  By 1916, the organisation had grown and became the Victorian Division of the Australian Comfort Fund.

As well as helping to ease the boredom of the women left behind and making them feel as though they were doing something useful to contribute to the war effort, knitting socks was a demonstration of patriotism and an intimate gesture towards absent loved ones. 

On my way back from Canberra on the train, three ladies in the seats in front of me were knitting and I took this as a “sign” that this should be the subject of my painting.

Painted purely from my imagination, “The Knitting Bee” is dedicated to all women left at home during wartime."
