Tim Rath

First time artist Tim Rath has combined two of his long held passions; photography and old ‘woollen’ footy jumpers, to develop a range of artworks that bring to life Australia’s indigenous game.

A graduate of Advertising (RMIT) and former country football (hack), Tim’s affinity with the fabric and designs of the jumpers of the 1970’s, 80’s and 90’s initially led him to try to record them all for posterity before the project took on an artistic bent in 2014.

The collection focuses on designs universal to lower level football around Australia in that era and is presented under the banner ‘Fabric of Football’.

Each artwork shows such detail that you can see (and almost feel), the interwoven patterns on each of the jumpers. 

Works are available as framed prints on stone (see below), greeting cards and commissioned works on canvas. The full range can be viewed at http://fabricoffootball.com.au/
