Belinda Ramson

Curated by Meredith Hinchliffe

 

“In 1967 Ramson studied as a special student for a year in the Tapestry Department, Edinburgh College of Art… In 1973, Ramson returned to Edinburgh to work as a weaver at the Dovecot Tapestry Studio, learning the precise methods which she described as “solidly based in a traditional discipline.” Ramson was committed to Archie Brennan’s way of thinking in weaving, which she considered to be “constantly innovative” and about “using the medium of tapestry to elucidate a conceptually difficult problem.”
– Meredith Hinchliffe, Curator

“Through her work as artist, teacher and consultant to the ATW [Australian Tapestry Workshop], Belinda Ramson played a crucial role in shaping the vibrant and distinctive woven tapestry movement that emerged so surprisingly and with such authority in Australia in the 1970s. Her influence is threaded through the development of contemporary tapestry in Australia: an art form now renowned internationally for its transformative and expressive use of an ancient medium.”
-Kay Lawrence, Head of the South Australian School of Art
