Jess Forster: Emerging Textile Artist

Jess Forster is an emerging sustainable Textile Artist from the Riverina in Rural New South Wales, Australia. She creates large-scale tapestries and soft sculpture from locally sourced wool felt. Her practice is an experimental inquiry into her relationship with the natural environment. The Artist is currently exploring the impact of drought on rural Australian landscapes, people and place. In her recent felted works the artist conveys a powerful message about our diminishing waterways.

Jess is an advocate for rural arts. She has exhibited in numerous group and solo exhibitions since 2018 including The Corner Store Gallery in Orange, Tumbarumba, Timeless Textiles in Newcastle and most recently, a sell-out show at X Gallery in Bungendore NSW. In 2017 she was awarded the Young Regional Artist Scholarship by Create NSW.
