Merideth Langdale

“I am a visual artist, educator and explorer of sustainable art practices. My recent work explores Eco dyed techniques. Each silk scarf has a unique marking from gathered Eucalyptus leaves heated and soaked in rusty water. Yes, the latter sounds strange but it's properties bring out colour and contrast that the Australian landscape offers - a beauty rich in flora and fauna.”

Between 1998 and 2000, Merideth studied art in Australia and the United States of America. She taught painting at Waverley-Woollahra Art School and Cooperative, Sydney as well as painting and ceramics at both the Artisian Art and Craft Shop and Studio and Whichcraft Studio, Canberra. In 1996, she was commissioned to paint the interior of Cafe Della Piazza restaurant, Canberra. From 2004 to 2006, Merideth studied life drawing and painting through the Visual Arts Access Program, Centre for Continuing Education. In 2006 and 2007, she also studied fabric and paper conservation at the Canberra Institute of Technology. While she's works predominantly in abstract expressionist painting, recently Merideth has moved into the discipline of textile and fibre art. In 2017, she commenced a Bachelor of Visual Arts at the ANU School of Art and Design.
