Jacqueline Fraser was one of two artists to represent New Zealand at the 2001 Venice Biennale, and since then has enjoyed outstanding international success.
The materials she has always preferred include coloured ribbon, raffia, and electrical or floristry wire for 'drawing', and techniques such as twisting, tying, knotting and suspension.
In her recent works she has used glamorous textiles to clothe line-ups of female figures and combined them with "pithy comments" that sting us about our fascination for fashion in a world full of inequality and grief.
Her work features in many private and public collections.
