A self confessed 'collector and organizer,' Whitten is an established Canberra based artist whose work has attracted considerable attention in both Australia and North America.


Basketry is the basis of this installation and Whitten's creative practice.
Whitten considers any material fair game, 'either by itself or in combination with other elements, including rust caused by weathering on my back step.'


Whitten's concern for the environment is present in these works, playing ‘an important, often subconscious, part in the materials of choice and the final forms of my baskets.'
