Home Spun: A textile collaboration between Indigenous artist Regina Wilson and Koskela

Renowned Indigenous artist Regina Wilson first spun off the canvas on to textiles earlier this year, collaborating with Russel Koskela and Sasha Titchkosky of Australian furniture store Koskela to create a range of textiles for home furnishings.

The artist has now released her second collection for Koskela, four gorgeous new textiles with bold, graphic patterns that are  directly based on the last series. The collection is currently being exhibited as part of a special installation at Koskela’s showroom. The video above forms part of that installation and sees Wilson discuss the process of abstracting the woven form onto canvas and how it allows her to keep cultural traditions alive.
