  3. 3. Artist: Shayle Flesser Title: Owl and Owls Medium: Graphite on 100% rag cotton paper Size: 100cm x 70cm Art description Graphite on 100% rag cotton paper Artist bio So many bellies of ravenous creatures must be looked after, garments bought, thieving hands guarded against and services employed in the face of tears and curses. How much happier is the woman who owes nothing to anybody except the one she can most easily refuse, herself. (Seneca the Younger) I try to keep something like faith that I'm making my work from a deep place inside me. And that it is benevolent toward me. I am not attracted to work that aims to pervert the truth. I aim for my work to be naked. I want to make images that would be both useful in daily life and address the female condition. I am attracted to images which display feminine power and vulnerability. I draw animals and humans to symbolize the attributes we take on as humans to construct our identity. I think about the relationship between natural and constructed worlds; how they are different creatures. I am not seeking to venerate my subjects - I am trying to reveal their truths. Where modern art tends to glorify things, I tend to show their reality. I hope this will benefit my (and others') sense of self.
  4. 4. Artist: Erica Gray Title: Spores Medium: mounting board, poly fibre, felt fabric, recycles car tyre and bike inner tubes Size: 80cm x 35cm x 35cm Art description A soft sculpture made early 2011 and inspired by the miserable wet weather Queensland had to endure. The use of recycled tyre inner tubes conjures up feelings of mildew and black floral growths that start to appear when the water subsides and leaves behind our familiar spaces transformed into a new and damp alien world. Artist bio Having over 25 years' experience within the fashion industry, various studies in design, pattern making, garment production and a keen interest in textile arts have led Erica to her passion for sculpture, in particular soft sculpture. Erica's work has been exhibited in prestigious events such as The Swell Sculpture Festival, Spare Parts 2010 and the Duke Gold Coast Art Prize - displaying a variety of both indoor & outdoor sculpture. Erica lives and works on the Gold Coast, QLD.    
  5. 5. Artist: Erica Gray Title: Ballistic Medium: Backing board, poly fibre, PVC Size: 60cm x 60 cm x 36cm Art description This soft sculpture can be wall mounted or self standing - the base had a hanging loop and protective felt surface. Ballistic - Deconstructing that which was once whole. A study in slow motion memory retrieval. Artist bio Having over 25 years' experience within the fashion industry, various studies in design, pattern making, garment production and a keen interest in textile arts have led Erica to her passion for sculpture, in particular soft sculpture.

Erica lives and works on the Gold Coast, QLD.
  6. 6. Artist: Shayle Flesser Title: Owl Head Medium :Ink and biro on 100% cotton rag paper Size: 50cm x 70cm Art description Ink and biro on 100% cotton rag paper Artist bio So many bellies of ravenous creatures must be looked after, garments bought, thieving hands guarded against and services employed in the face of tears and curses. How much happier is the woman who owes nothing to anybody except the one she can most easily refuse, herself. (Seneca the Younger) I try to keep something like faith that I'm making my work from a deep place inside me. And that it is benevolent toward me.

  7. 7. Artist: Deborah Nicholls Title: Trace Medium: carbon on paper Size: 90 x 71 Art description Trace is defined as visible mark, such as a footprint, made or left by the passage of a person, animal, or thing or evidence or an indication of the former presence or existence of something. We all impact on our world in different ways when we are gone all that remains is a trace of who we were. Our aim would be that our trace is individual and positive. Artist bio Deborah Nicholls is a Brisbane based artist who is currently completing a Bachelor of Fine Art at Griffith University. She creates and exhibits paintings, collages and sculptural artworks in various styles. Her work is continually evolving, incorporating new technology as well as contemporary and traditional media. Currently works are centred on the notion of our existence and how this complex notion might be expressed through art making.
  8. 8. Artist: Erica Gray Title: Screamer Medium: Poly fibre, PVC, polymer clay, wooden base Size: 38cm x 60cm x 48cm Art description A soft sculpture that plays on mixing the cute sweet image of a baby face with a red worm like creature - this is how watching &quot;Dr Who&quot; shows as a child effected me? LOL Artist bio Having over 25 years' experience within the fashion industry, various studies in design, pattern making, garment production and a keen interest in textile arts have led Erica to her passion for sculpture, in particular soft sculpture. Erica's work has been exhibited in prestigious events such as The Swell Sculpture Festival, Spare Parts 2010 and the Duke Gold Coast Art Prize - displaying a variety of both indoor & outdoor sculpture. Erica lives and works on the Gold Coast, QLD.
  9. 9. Artist: Ann Copp Title: Transitory Medium: Oil on canvas Size: 54cm x 100cm Art description Based on visual assumptions we characterise and box what we see. Our first impressions of a stranger is based on the visual, with the majority of us living in cities we live and work in close proximity to one another but do we really know each other do we stop and take the time to connect with the people that surround us. My paintings capture the atmosphere of city life and the people who occupy them. Through light, movement, and distortion I have captured glimpses of the unseen personalities, which we pass by on the street. My work is a portrayal of movement, the illusions of motion and light depicting transparent distorted images, thus creating an almost abstract composition of reality which is unseen with the naked eye, captured in a matrix of time and space, while exploring modern life's transitory nature, chaotic movement and the fusion of the people in our city. Artist bio Born in Brisbane, grew up not realising my true vocation, my early studies led to a certificate of Merit in Business training in 1988. Ten years later my passion for creativity took control and I set off in a new direction. In 1999 I studied Interior Decoration obtaining a Certificate IV in Design Services at TAFE Brisbane. The following year I moved to the Gold Coast and continued my studies at Griffith University, graduating in 2002 with a Bachelor of Design Studies, double Major in (Three Dimensional Design & Visual Culture). In 2004 I completed a course in Flash Animation at Gold Coast Institute of TAFE. I am currently in my final year at Griffith University Queensland College of Art Brisbane, 2011 Candidate, Bachelor of Fine Art, Painting Major. It has been a long road but finally I have found my true calling.    
  10. 10. Artist: Shayle Flesser Title: Peregrine Honig Drawing #1 Medium: Ink and biro on 100% cotton rag paper Size: 100cm x 70cm Art description Ink and biro on 100% cotton rag paper Artist bio So many bellies of ravenous creatures must be looked after, garments bought, thieving hands guarded against and services employed in the face of tears and curses. How much happier is the woman who owes nothing to anybody except the one she can most easily refuse, herself. (Seneca the Younger) I try to keep something like faith that I'm making my work from a deep place inside me. And that it is benevolent toward me.

  11. 11. Artist: Fintan Magee Title: Lost Again Medium: Acrylic, Spray and oil on canvas Size: 100x100cms Art description A simple mixed media painting, from a body of work that uses images from popular culture in various states of waste and decay. The piece deals with both loss and renewal on a personal level while highlighting broader issues of waste and consumption in society. Artist bio Magee grew up in Brisbane, Australia and is an active member in the cities long standing graffiti and street art scene. His vibrant walls can be found on streets and abandoned buildings across Australia, Europe and the US. He has exhibited in cities across Australia and has previously been selected for the churchie, Lethbridge and prometheus art prizes. He currently lives in his home town Brisbane and works as and artist, muralist and designer. To learn more check out: www.fintanmagee.com
  12. 12. Artist: Patricia Linehan Title: Pond Medium: Oil on Curtain Fabric Size: 76.5 x 102cm Art description Much of my work is based on the figure and portraiture. Recently, the intention of my work has been to capture the freedom experienced by children which often seems unattainable to adults. In Pond I have depicted a young girl bathed in sunlight, peering into the water below the stepping stones on which she stands. The water itself is undefined and vague, a space to be filled by the child's imagination. There is no limit to what she could see beneath the water. Pond has been painted on curtain fabric, the pattern of which can be seen faintly through the sheen of the paint. The patterned fabric is reminiscent of the home and the confines of domestic life and the everyday environments we surround ourselves with. Here, this environment and its limitations are juxtaposed with the infinite possibilities of the child's imagination. Artist bio I completed a Bachelor of Art (Visual) at the ANU Canberra School of Art in 2004, where I specialised in Painting and Sculpture. I moved to Brisbane in 2006. I lived in France in 2007 and have spent some time travelling which has greatly influenced and informed my work to date. In 2008 I completed a Graduate Diploma of Education and I am currently teaching Visual Art to Students at a local secondary college.

  14. 14. Artist: Angela Parragi Title: Self Portrait in Studio, in pyjamas, with my shadow Medium: Oil on Canvas Size: 107cm x 82cm Art description My work is about honesty and making passing moments permanent by capturing them in paint. This is very much a self portrait- this is what I do (painting) and where (at home) and in my pyjamas as I usually am. My dog is also a very important aspect of my life, and also he does literally sit with me as I paint. Artist bio Currently living in Canberra. Completed Bachelor of Visual Arts (Hons.) 2010
  15. 15. Artist: Melinda Willis Title: Liminal Space 2, 2010 Medium: Screen Printed, Fused and Cold-worked Glass; UV Cured Inkjet Print on Glass; Cold-worked Mirror and Float Glass Installed Size: H. 87cm, W. 220cm, D. 25cm Art description Liminal Space 2 explores my ongoing interest in the phenomena of glass in the urban environment and its reflective qualities as a perceptual experience. In contemporary architecture, sheet glass has become a predominant material used in the construction of the urban environment and has varying effects on the way that we experience the space around us. The reflectivity of the material lends itself to a constant and poetic dialogue with its surroundings. The complex relationships, of layered images on reflective surfaces, have compelled me to seek a more detailed account of this phenomenon. Making known the relationships between the static, moving, compressed, obliquely angled, abstract, and sequential is my aim. Artist bio I graduated from South Australian School of Art, the University of South Australia in 2008. During this time I developed an interest in investigating the effect of reflection in glass in the urban landscape. My work was selected for inclusion as a finalist for the international Bullseye E-Merge competition in 2008 and in 2009; my work entitled Within/Without was selected for the international peer reviewed journal, New Glass Review. After graduating from the South Australian School of Art I relocated to Canberra to undertake Honours at the Australian National University. I graduated with First Class Honours and was awarded the 2010 Canberra Glassworks Residency Award, which I will undertake in the latter part of this year. Currently, I am developing my emerging art practice as a studio hirer in the Canberra Glassworks.    
  16. 16. Artist: Dan Vukovljak Title: CBRU-01 Medium: comic book pages Size: 82 x 12 x 60 cm Art description I aim to offer viewers alternative image and narrative constructions based on the comic book. In this work, rolled comic book pages are used as the physical matter of the work, and mimic structural aspects of comic book panels. Artist bio 11 October 1969, Canberra, Australia 2011 Solo Show: Something or Nothing - art and gadgets, CCAS Manuka Group Show: Blaze 5, CCAS Gorman House, Canberra 2010 Group Show: HP-9, ANU School of Art 2009 Bachelor of Arts (Visual) Honours First Class, Australian National University (ANU) School of Art, Canberra ANU School of Art - Emerging Artists Support Scheme (EASS) Australian Decorative and Fine Arts Society of Canberra Award Canberra Contemporary Art Space Residency and Exhibition Award Canberra Grammar School Exhibition Award KPMG Acquisition Award Megalo Print Studio Residency Award Equal 1st, Jan Brown Drawing Prize, Foyer Gallery, ANU School of Art 1991 Bachelor of Science (Computer Science and Psychology), ANU, Canberra
  17. 17. Artist:Lisa Wang (Dodson) Title: Follow the Leader Medium: Oil on linen Size: 600 x 1500 mm Art description Sheepdog Trials, Mansfield, Victoria. Artist bio Born and raised in China. Lisa's passion and aptitude for art was evident at an early age. Her formal art training commenced at secondary school and continued through university. In 2000 Lisa graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Shanghai. In 2002, Lisa left China went to New Zealand to open a new chapter in her life. During her time there, she developed further as an artist and became a respected art teacher. In early 2007, Lisa moved to Australia . She is now a full-time artist and frames her own work- believing that the frame is an integral part of the work that should support and enhance the work's central theme.
  18. 18. Artist:Lisa Wang (Dodson) Title: Pigeons on Elizabeth Medium: Oil on canvas Size: 760 x 760 mm Art description A perspective of the city rarely seen. The painting focuses on the birds that make the city their home and shows a unique intersection of nature and technology. Artist bio Born and raised in China. Lisa's passion and aptitude for art was evident at an early age. Her formal art training commenced at secondary school and continued through university. In 2000 Lisa graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Shanghai. In 2002, Lisa left China went to New Zealand to open a new chapter in her life.

  19. 19. Artist: Melinda Willis Title: Liminal Space 1, 2010 Medium: Screen Printed, Fused and Cold-worked Glass; UV Cured Inkjet Print on Glass; Cold-worked Mirror and Float Glass Installed Size: H. 84cm, W. 220cm, D. 25cm Art description My work explores the phenomena of glass and its reflective qualities relative to the contemporary urban experience. Sheet glass is a predominant material in the urban environment and has varying effects on the way we experience the space around us. My recent practice has involved observing, recording and exploring space through the reflections from sheet glass held in buildings in public city areas. I have investigated these spaces through photography, capturing moments of time and translated them into layered structures of sheet glass, fused glass and mixed media, which reference a series of entries and exits in and across time and space. Glass in architecture is very present in our modern-day lives, but rarely thought about or explored as a vehicle for transience or impermanence of time and space. The ghostly interplay of these structures echoes the transitory nature of life and relationships and the ephemera of the everyday. Artist bio I graduated from South Australian School of Art, the University of South Australia in 2008. During this time I developed an interest in investigating the effect of reflection in glass in the urban landscape. My work was selected for inclusion as a finalist for the international Bullseye E-Merge competition in 2008 and in 2009; my work entitled Within/Without was selected for the international peer reviewed journal, New Glass Review. After graduating from the South Australian School of Art I relocated to Canberra to undertake Honours at the Australian National University. I graduated with First Class Honours and was awarded the 2010 Canberra Glassworks Residency Award, which I will undertake in the latter part of this year. Currently, I am developing my emerging art practice as a studio hirer in the Canberra Glassworks.    
  20. 20. Artist:Lisa Wang (Dodson) Title: Sunset Serenade Medium: Oil on Canvas Size: 415 x 615 mm Art description Sunset at Barwon Heads, Victoria. The painting captures the warmth of light as it fades into the night behind a lone rowboat moored on the beach. The artist has used coarse brush strokes and a textured canvas to complement the stark contrast between light and darkness. Artist bio Born and raised in China. Lisa's passion and aptitude for art was evident at an early age. Her formal art training commenced at secondary school and continued through university. In 2000 Lisa graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Shanghai. In 2002, Lisa left China went to New Zealand to open a new chapter in her life. During her time there, she developed further as an artist and became a respected art teacher. In early 2007, Lisa moved to Australia . She is now a full-time artist and frames her own work- believing that the frame is an integral part of the work that should support and enhance the work's central theme.
  21. 21. Artist: Kate Vassallo Title: One hour in a gallery Medium: Inkjet Print on poster paper Size: 169cm x 135 cm Art description This image is documentation from a series of performances entitled 'One-Hour Studio'. In these performances we see the body of the artist occupying different spaces as artist studios. In this work the artist inhabits an empty 'white-cube' gallery. The body is dormant in the vast space, alluding to the mind activating while the space is still. This is a large, unframed, photographic print ideally hung with archival tabs and pinned to the wall. Artist bio Kate Vassallo graduated from the Australian National University School of Art in 2010, with a Bachelor of Visual Arts (Honours), First Class with University Medal. She has had her first solo exhibition in Canberra and exhibited in numerous group shows, most recently HATCHED 2011: National Graduate Exhibition, held annually at the Perth Institute of Contemporary Art. Vassallo's work attempts to find ways of preserving the tangible experience of making. She undertakes a deconstruction of Performance Documentation, attempting to find a medium with which ephemeral moments can be adequately represented once they have passed. Her work is playful while she questions the conventions surrounding what makes an object art and the person that makes it an artist.

  26. 26. Artist: Richard Hammer Title: Sesquipedalium Medium: Stainless Steel, Sheoak Size: 600H, 500W, 500D, (mm) Art description Sesquipedalium is a kinetic work that responds chaotically to movement of air. It makes visual the variability of the atmosphere in which we live. The interaction between the atmosphere and everything else comes alive. It awakens our sense of wonder at ordinary everyday air. Busy lives pause to gaze at something different. Near an open window on a windy day it moves continually. Nearby doors opening and closing will shift it. At some sites it's just still. Artist bio Richard Hammer CV (ARTS) Interests My first interest was chaotic, kinetic, wind-driven sculpture. I like the live, unpredictable, almost-interactive aspects. I'm now branching out, exploring other concepts and ideas, including doing some sculpture units at TAFE with Tony Jones. Recent Exhibitor, Bassendean's Sandy Beach Sculpture Park Exhibition, WA, March 2010 and March 2011. Exhibitor, Castaways, Rockingham, WA, May 2009, May 2010 and May 2011.

Various drawings were sold to private collectors, and the Australian Computer Society commissioned a drawing which was presented to Sir Charles Court as he opened the annual convention. Education My degrees include a B.A., M.Sc., and Ph.D. in Mathematics. In undergraduate art class I made nonsense machines from wood, that actually worked. Inspirations Alexander Calder, George Rickey, Robert Klippel, Jean Tinguely.

It is a journey for you to experience the changes in the natural landscape of the region to the commencement of corporate mining. Through sculptural layering, her paintings express beautiful open-pits and slips. Washes of colour and fine brush markings create depth and atmosphere. Texture and colour display the energetic surfaces of the harsh Australian terrain which is rendered with rich colours that delivers a contemporary finish.

  28. 28. Artist: Judy Rogers Title: Rob Diptych Medium: Mixed Media on Board Size: 90x45cm Art description Robert Cleworth is my friend. He has recently moved away to New South Wales and I was quite devastated to lose him as a good friend, mentor and colleague. I wanted to keep him around a bit longer; this is why I made his portrait. I visited him in Newcastle and the sitting for the portrait took place on his balcony in the morning sunshine after a night of family dinner, running around after kids and conversation. I used the triptych format to emphasize some of Rob's personal qualities and bring out his dynamic character. He is, under a very private persona, a warm end engaging man with a good sense of humour.

  29. 29. Artist: Judy Rogers Title: Marriage Diptych Medium: Mixed Media on Board Size: 120x60cm Art description This work is a representation of my marriage. The white shirt is the institution and the hands represent the dynamics of the relationship. The fabric is sometimes gently drawn to cover and protect and sometimes violently pulled when it becomes suffocating. The bodies are intertwined and joined; they are merging together as one body.

Could she be ascending into heaven, or merely suspended in time. Artist bio I take inspiration from all quarters, I celebrate the unusual, I break rules as a habit. Art is my little world of rebellion, where I can express my feelings in a way that only I can choose, but one that you can share I am Melinda, mother of 5 and artist. I live and work in the most remote capital city in the world, Perth, Australia. This remote city with an unforgiving climate inspires great creativity. You have to work hard for it here, and it truly brings out the best in the Artist. I am a student of my environment, a scribe, a communicator, a historian, a conduit. A medium and adjudicator. Art inspires me, and in turn I use it to inspire others .My art entices me to find the beauty of even the most mundane. There is none so beautiful as those who see the beauty in all things. Melinda x

  34. 34. Artist: Elizabeth Christie Title: Scruffy at the Beach Medium: Oil Paint on MDF Size: 900x600x3.0 Art description I painted this work, in March this year. It was a photograph i took of my dog down at the beach earlier in the year which i loved and would work well as a painting. I used Water mixable oils and applied them with a palette knife to the mdf board in a very thick, gestural way. Artist bio My name is Liz, I am eighteen years old, and currently studying visual arts at UniSA where i plan to specialise in painting next semester when we start our specialisation. I also work part time at Target, which i love. With the money i earn form work, i try to save some, spend some on social activities and the rest helps me to purchase all the paints and other materials needed for uni - i'm finding oil paint very expensive!!. I have always loved art, especially painting. In high school I studyed Art, Carft and Design-the three art subjects which were offered until year twelve when i could only do Visual Arts Studies because of restricted subjects. I achieved a 20/20 for my practical work in year twelve, and a 17/20 overall. My second year twelve major (a large oil painting of the slums in buenos aires) was selected to be apart of the SACE art show, which made me very proud! I also won the school art prize for 'excellence' in 2009 (year twelve). Whilst at the moment, i am happy living the 'poor uni student life', i hope to travel the world when i finish studying. I particularly love London and Paris and can not wait to travel there. I love life and try to live it to the full, which i think comes through in some of my works which could be seen as 'happy snaps'. At the moment i am working on a series of paintings for uni, based on 'life' but more specifically, the 'teenaged life'. This is made up of a range of images that portray life, and memories.
  35. 35. Artist: Rebecca Kammer Title: From A to BP #2 Medium: Archival Inkjet Print Size: 50x75cm Art description This photograph is part of my graduating folio, a series entitled &quot;Mod Cons&quot;. It is about the way we as humans seem to have a deep drive to make things more convenient for ourselves, but in this quest we have ultimately created a poisonous lifestyle. Most of what we consume is laden with toxic ingredients and chemicals, yet we choose to stay ignorant of this in pursuit of short term gratification. The subjects in the series are all using items or products of convenience, and are unaware that they are releasing the toxins from their bodies. In this image the subject is driving a car, and the green condensation on the window represents her breathing out the toxic fumes. Artist bio Rebecca Kammer is currently finishing her Bachelor of Visual Art and Design (Photography) and working as a Creative Assistant for an online clothing boutique. She recently participated in a Masterclass with world renowned art photographer Gregory Crewdson at Adelaide College of the Arts and is now working on a new body of conceptual artwork which she intends to exhibit in late 2011 or 2012.

  36. 36. Artist: Rebecca Kammer Title: Disconnection #9 Medium: Archival Inkjet Print Size: 40x60cm Art description This piece is part of a series which looks at the way we as humans are becoming increasingly disconnected from our natural environment, through urbanisation and ignorant exploitation. The figure walks lost through a forest, unable to see or feel anything, wrapped in newspaper - a product we exploit that very environment to create. To connect with the landscape again the figure must shed the wrapping, which will eventually breakdown and become one with the land .

They are multilayered depiction of a cities and landscapes, which incorporates residual memories of archaeological history of place.

  38. 38. Artist: Kristian T Mumford Title: Parisian Debutante Medium: Oil on Linen Size: 120x120 Art description Some facts about me: I am inspired by classic pieces of art. Its what makes me go &quot;Wow&quot;. I prefer beauty to glamour, and sensuality to erotics. Beauty is what makes me get out of bed! I don't like contests and competitions, because I don't want to be compared to anyone. I am not here to flirt or chat. References available. Kristian T Mumford - Parisian debutante (OilOnLinen)120x120cm is about old fashioned values enhanced by new on the subject of marriage. Marriage is a social union or legal contract between people that creates kinship. it is not to become a form of legalized prostitution It is not for same sex because it is between a man and a women. The widespread adoption of different versions of no-fault divorce by most states after 1970 transformed marriage and family. The traditional presumption in favor of the permanence of marriage (with certain well-defined exceptions) gave way to a situation in which one of the partners, for whatever reason, could unilaterally end the marriage. This marked a cultural shift from regarding marriage as a truly fundamental social institution to regarding it as primarily a personal union in which there is a very limited social interest. Artist bio KRISTIAN T MUMFORD b.1980 Born in country South Australia, Mumford is third generation Australian artist and son of Jenni Mumford, astronomer, gardener and painter. At the age of 14, he decided that art was going to be his chosen profession. Kristian was fortunate to study informally with Jenni Mumford and Scottish grandfather Gerry Hough OAM. Much of what Kristian paints or makes relates to the beauty he loves of a persons inner most being. His paintings a cease searching and revelation of forces benign. A versatile painter, Mumford's artistic output includes landscapes and one or two still lifes, however he feels especially compelled to paint the most classical of artistic subjects, the human figure. Kristian Mumford's painting is elegant. Smoothed, layered, dusted and swifted onto the picture plane with lucent virtuosity, his rich vermeer secular works challenge intimidated assumptions. Mumford has developed, a healthy disregard for the opinions of others, heavly educated in his twenties, yet always knowing in his heart to pursue his own unique vision and belief in artistic freedom. Serene country South Australian-based Mumford was already a regular exhibitor prior to completing Post Graduate studies in both Visual Arts at SASA and Landscape Architecture at Melbourne University. His work continues to draw critical acclaim with regular and highly successful solo exhibitions, private collectors, and representation in USA, Sydney, Adelaide, Brisbane and Melbourne. Mumford has completed self organised residencies in several Australian centres, as well as in Amsterdam as the winner of the ANAT Travelling Art Grant. He has been an award finalist in the worlds richest landscape prize; Fluerieu Art Prize, and finalist in the prestigious Hans Heysen Prize, Mortimore on several occasions and Aethetica (England) prizes. His various work is held in the collections of the Art House Hotel (New South Wales), Adelaide University Collection, and numerous corporate and private collections. Many choose a path of defiance and provocation,
  39. 39. Artist: Rebecca Kammer Title: A Rare Glimpse Medium: expired 120mm colour film, Archival Inkjet Print Size: 60x54cm Art description I took this picture when the subject was recovering from a severe bout of glandular fever which had her on a drip in hospital for weeks. To me this picture is beautiful, because there is an honesty in it. Her illness forced her to forgo her usual meticulously crafted face of makeup and trendy outfits and just be herself, to let go of her unhealthy obsession with image.

Artist: Zoe Alyssia Kirkwood Title: Phoenix series no.1: Flourish/Thrive Medium: Synthetic polymer and Oil on canvas Size: 137 x 183 cm Art description Large scale painted narrative work which includes two Australian Black Ibis' and a Rhode Island Scarlett Ibis (native to the birthplace of the artists' mother). The feature wing, surrounded by a neon halo, employs the artist's signature experimental painting style. Artist bio Zoe Kirkwood is a young emerging artist who currently lives and works in Adelaide. Her signature style melds a disparate array of painterly techniques, ranging from experimental abstraction to a refined tonal realism. Her most recent series of work sees her employ an almost Carravaggesque style, with figures simultaneously emerging and retreating from the shadows, as she examines the regenerative mythology of the Phoenix through a series of narrative paintings .

  43. 43. Artist: Rosanne Croucher Title: Inflection Medium: Oil Size: 150 x 200cm Art description My practice is based on several interests and influences. These include the relationship between man and nature, expressing psychological 'inscapes' through landscape imagery, exploring the relationship between realism and abstraction with paint, and investigating an Eastern treatment of space through the removal of a fixed ground. Inflection represents the shifting and temporary nature of our own memories and dreams, as well as our perceptions of the world we live in. The drifting quality of the work points out the necessity of both flexibility and conviction in the way we approach life- some things need to be held on to, others need to be let go of. Artist bio Rosanne Croucher was born in 1987 in Hamilton, and has been living in Auckland for the past 5 years. She is currently completing her third and final year of study at Unitec in doing a Bachelor of Design and Visual Arts, majoring in Visual Arts. Group exhibitions she has been involved in include Bungalow 6 at Unitec 2010, Mindscapes at Global Café 2010, and Hard to Reach Places at Mairangi Bay Arts Centre 2011. She is also involved in leading a visual arts team at her local church. This has involved managing, curating and participating in a group art show called Beauty in the Broken in the Mercury Theatre 2010, assisting with stage/prop design and various venue decorations. In addition she has been involved in school makeovers in the Auckland community, and the donation of paintings to Ronald McDonald House, a division of Starship Hospital. Her paintings mainly consist of oil and acrylic, with a dominant focus on elements of both landscape and abstraction.
  44. 44. Artist: Rosanne Croucher Title: Ardor Medium: Oil Size: 150 x 120cm Art description My practice is based on several interests and influences. These include the relationship between man and nature or our surroundings, expressing psychological 'inscapes' through landscape imagery, exploring the relationship between realism and abstraction with paint, and investigating an Eastern treatment of space through the removal of a fixed ground. Ardor in particular represents the tension between nostalgia for how things used to be/a romantic view of nature as a refuge, and the instability of our current reality- environmentally, economically, psychologically. Through combining both the familiar and the unknown in a painting, I find an opportunity arises for reconsidering oneself and possible areas of change and growth.

  45. 45. Artist: Julian McKinnon Title: Cosmogenesis Medium: Acrylic on paper Size: 135cm x 125cm Art description Abstract painting. Strong tonal contrast, asymmetrical structural line-work, &quot;urban&quot; look. mostly black/white/grey with small areas of multiple colours. Artist bio Julian Mckinnon is a visual artist from Wellington, New Zealand. He first studied visual art in 2000, and has been developing his art practice, exhibiting, and participating in international events since. He has also travelled extensively in India, the United States, and Europe to learn more about the rich artistic cultures of East and West. His primary field of artistic enquiry is painting based abstraction. &quot;To me the art making process is a dialogue between the myself and the materials. I cannot dictate the work; I have to negotiate with the material, and allow for unexpected occurrences. I improvise rather than preparing sketches, so the work evolves on the painted surface. The final outcome is not foreseeable from the beginning of the process. My paintings involve a delicate balance of pattern, structure, and organic order, against unruliness, rawness, and chaos. These opposing dynamics are what gives the work its visual substance.&quot;    
  46. 46. Artist: Kathryn Stevens Title: Vault Medium: Oil on canvas Size: 1800mm x 1500mm Art description Informed by a combination of painting theory architecture and engineering, Kathryn Stevens' work explores the twin painterly ideals of depth and palette. Stevens' work investigates the representation of depth through an implied three-dimensional structure on a two-dimensional plane. The paintings also explore the effect of variation in the tonal range of a colour on the structure present on the canvas. The result is work that emits a rhythmic, quasi-electric energy, underpinned by a sense of mathematical precision. Inspired in part by the immediacy of architectural and urban spaces in the modern environment and the interaction between surface and structure in modern glass-and-steel construction, Stevens' earlier works explored the limits of three-dimensional space with rectilinear division. With the introduction of curved line and the use of tonal blocks of colour to suggest depth and to further energise the composition, Stevens' later works warp this limited space and lend fluidity to her expression of three-dimensional structure. Artist bio Artist: Kathryn Stevens was born in the King Country town of Te Kuiti in 1965 and lived there until 1983 when she moved to Auckland to study civil engineering. In 1996, having worked in the film and television industry as a makeup artist for ten years, Stevens again enrolled at University and graduated from the elam school of fine arts in 1999 with a BFA in painting. Since then Stevens has exhibited regularly in Auckland and Christchurch and has been a finalist in the Wallace art awards, the BMW art awards and the Waikato art awards. In her painting Stevens is interested in the way that space and depth can be suggested, and are perceived. Stevens painting, though abstract, suggests construction grids, walls, windows, or paved floors. In each of the paintings Stevens sets up a different possibility of space and depth using the linear grid and the colour that it lies in

  48. 48. Artist: Isla Osborne Title: Brown Infection Medium: Lampworked glass, stainless steel, acrylic; constructed Size: 500mm x 500mm x 20mm Art description In my current body of work I aim to create a tension between the beauty of the piece and what it represents. I understand that we don't generally think of viruses as beautiful, but viewed objectively they are exquisite and unique. Brown Infection was created to initiate discussion about the global impact of a viral epidemic and how media distortion can affect people on a local level. If we don't want our communities to become a casualty, there are some important questions we need to ask ourselves. From what sources do we trust information about what is dangerous? What checks are placed upon these sources? How do we redefine our own circumstances when hearing of epidemics in media? Do we cease to become part of a community because of perceived threats to our well-being? I think that isolationist ideas have the ability to spread through communities like viruses and can be damaging on a number of levels. Acknowledging that there can be more genetic variation in a family group of chimpanzees than the entire human population; how different are we really? Is the human genome so homogenous that we face real danger from a viral epidemic? Or does the real threat come from our voluntary isolation and lack of empathy? Artist bio Isla has been making things since she was a child and has vivid memories of her seven-year-old self, enameling copper coins with a blowtorch. She now makes contemporary glass jewellery and artworks from her garden studio in Auckland, New Zealand. Glass is both subject and object in Isla's work and its chemical and physical properties fascinate her. It is fluid whilst unyielding, delicate whilst impenetrable. Glass can transform from liquid to solid in an instant, while still retaining the illusion of movement. Isla's process consists of making finely crafted glass beads, melted with a torch according to traditional Italian methods. Although the techniques she uses are ancient, their application is contemporary and she is constantly experimenting with the nature and chemistry of glass. She says &quot;Lampworking is an ancient and magical process, a chemistry that borders on alchemy and as an artist find its lure irresistible.&quot; In her current body of work, Isla explores the relationship between the virus and its host community. Creating a tension between the artworks beauty and what it represents, Isla presents a thoughtful view of the world we live in.    
  49. 49. Artist: Melinda Butt Title: Strange attractor Medium: Acrylic, Oil on canvas Size: 70 x 70cm Art description This painting is an illustration of energy, that incorporates the virtues of abstract expression. The Title 'Strange Attractor' alludes to chaos theory, and the notion of certain uncertainty. It's also a reference to my new style of expression and my overall passion to be a painter. To be drawn in a new direction is strange, inspiration itself is a type of strange attractor. The desire to be an artist regardless of the craft is unexplainable to many. The aim of my art is to create an awareness of uncertainty, patterns, fluidity, simplicity and the notion of embracing change, A challenge with charm. My aim has always been to provide joy though visually pleasing works and simplicity is a great vehicle for delivering that motive. Artist bio Born in 1976, I grew up on a small farm in the rural community of Waimauku in the western outskirts of Auckland. I expressed a strong passion for art from an early age and was a prolific painter throughout my education. After finishing my Bachelor of Arts degree, I worked in the film and television industry for ten years both in the UK and New Zealand. Strong connections were still maintained to other art mediums throughout this time. After extensive travel through Europe, the Middle East and Asia I returned to New Zealand. My experiences abroad created a renewed focus towards my art. Over the following years I have redirected my energy towards painting.

  51. 51. Artist: Chris Dennis Title: Albatorss Hunting Medium: Acrylic and Mixed Media on Panel Size: 61cm x 76cm Art description My paintings are perhaps best described as 'Narrative expressionism' or 'internalized portraiture'. The juxtaposition of a static figure (often possessing the head of either a fish or a bird) in an active setting hints at the internal, through the depiction of the external. The stories behind these 'Therianthropic' pieces are deliberately ambiguous. The incongruity yet immediacy of the imagery fuel the viewer's preconceptions. They invite the witness to create their own narrative and bring to mind facets or emotions that maybe more difficult to confront if not disguised behind a mask. Artist bio Prior to his fine art career, Chris Dennis was admitted to Bournemouth and Poole College of Art and Design to study natural history illustration. This classical training is evident in his current therianthropic work. After completing his BA (Hons) at the University of Wolverhampton he relocated to the United States, and in 2000 earned his MFA from the University of Art in San Francisco. Chris has exhibited in cities across the United States, Europe and New Zealand, including San Francisco, New Orleans, London, Berlin and Auckland. He lives in Auckland.

  53. 53. Artist: Jane Louise Blackmore Title: this distance between us.... Medium: Oil and Acrylic on canvas Size: 101cm x 101cm Art description This painting has been created using a technique I have been experimenting with over the last year. It is a combination of adding and subtracting paint within the work. building up of layers and then dramatically pulling them back to reveal the underlying foundations. The intention of this work was to speak of our spiritual connection to the land, time passing and personal reflection This painting really took on a life of its own and the result is one of mystery and contemplation. Artist bio Jane Blackmore has been painting for twenty years and was born in Rotorua New Zealand in 1973. She has recently celebrated the first year anniversary of her Gallery and Studio, Blackmore Jean Gallery and Studio, Shelly Bay Wellington. Jane was awarded first prize in the New Zealand National Women's Art Exhibition in 2007 and continues to gain critical acclaim for her artwork. She sells her work in galleries throughout New Zealand and has international clients in Australia, UK and the USA. Jane teaches oil painting from her studio and continues to enjoy being involved heavily in the art community.

  55. 55. Artist: James R Ford Title: Another Alliteration Iteration Medium: Fineliner pen on paper Size: 59 x 59 cm Art description The artist's interest in visual, verbal and conceptual forms of repetition and patterns is evident in his new series of drawings, Tongue Tied and Tired. Aural, alliterative pairings and sequences are transformed to visual forms by laboured textual rendering. The act of writing lines as a punishment is given a new purpose - the words form intertwined threads, flowing into the shapes of imaginary knots that loop on infinitely. Ford takes Escher's famous trefoil knot as a starting point and moves onto to more complex, theoretical knotted shapes. There is a metaphorical tying of the tongue and a visual tying of the knot. Artist bio James R Ford is a conceptual artist whose practice explores notions of repetition, pathos and idiocy; delving into the activities and influences of his childhood. His body of work consists of process based projects and investigations.
  56. 56. Artist: Pip Davies Title: Groover Medium: Encaustic (beeswax and resin) and pigment on old kitchen cupboard. Size: 850mm x 520mm Art description Starting from an image in a magazine, the essence of it transformed into a different story, more ambiguous, less sure, something that can shift around the viewer and take on personal anxieties and pleasures. Artist bio Pip Davies is a visual artist, always learning by doing. Completing a Bachelor of Visual Arts and Design has lead her to focus on the figurative potential of drawing and painting, reusing old cupboards to engage in vignettes of the everyday.    
  57. 57. Artist: Andrew Ginther Title: Imperfect World Medium: c-type photographic print Size: 194cm X 184cm Art description This is a large digital composite photographic work from a ongoing series looking at the transformation of the mundane to iconic. The search for pattern and unity reflects the endless human condition of meaningful connection in a world we assume is made for us but in our darkest moments realise is not. Artist bio Andrew committed to photography over 25 years ago. From courses at Ilam Fine Art School at Canterbury University and Christchurch Polytechnic, there have been exhibitions and commercial work commissions interspersed with personal practice and a wide interest in all visual art media. More recently he has tutored in digital photography at the National College of Design and Technology and at Massey University Fine Arts School. His work features the frequent use of bold colour and strong compositions. Landscapes and urban abstractions have become a consistent theme as well as environmental portraiture and mixed media work, combining traditional and digital photography with sculpture and other fine art techniques to create a hybridization of 20th Century work inspired by the cubist and surrealist movements. In 2006 an unusual black and white shot from a wedding was entered in the New Zealand National Library Documentary Photographic competition. The print was declared winner and the prize money was spent on yet more photographic equipment. Eventually digital raised its game and was worthy of investing in. A move to a full digital setup in the last two years was realized. The latest technologies for scanning, ink jet printing and Internet storage and display have been investigated and forms the future of Andrew's work going forward. But traditional photography is not ignored. Medium and large format cameras have been retained and are still used for personal and commercial work.
  58. 58. Artist: Susanne Kerr Title: in a rut #1 Medium: pen and ink on paper Size: 1000 x 700 mm Art description This work belongs to a series called Domesticated Animals which looks at the ways that humans display animal-like behaviour in the rituals and routines of daily life and questions how different we are to the animals we stalk, or have under our control as companions and livestock. This work refers to a commonly used animal-related idiom - in a rut- to portray tension between office workers, likening their behaviour to stags rutting to resolve conflict. Artist bio Susanne Kerr is a Wellington painter who lives and works in Eastbourne. She gained a BFA from Canterbury University in 2000. Painting is an integral component of her life along with the care of her three children. Susanne's paintings typically examine issues around language and behaviour, often with a dark humorous twist. Susanne's current work centres around thoughts on humans as 'domesticated animals'. Her work has been published in four artist's books, appeared in NZ Home and Entertainment magazine and Next magazine, and have been finalists in numerous art awards and exhibited in public exhibitions. She exhibits regularly with Sanderson Contemporary Art Gallery in Auckland.    
  59. 59. Artist: Susanne Kerr Title: 20% chance of rain Medium: Acrylic on canvas Size: 910 x 910 mm Art description This work belongs to a series that looks at the parallels between theatre and life; in particular, this work explores the tenuous relationship between two individuals - a relationship symbolically and literally washed away by the forecasted rain predicted by the omnipresent weather forecasters we so fervently watch for certainty in our daily lives.

  61. 61. Artist: Bonnie Coad Title: Embrace Medium: Acrylics Size: 91.2cm x 61cm Art description Acrylics on Streched canvas. EMBRACE is textured and richly colored. Many layers of paint have been built up using old cooking impliments to create furrows and groves that the paint has been applied over so the different colours make interesting blended effects. It features two human forms (Mother & Daughter) embracing. Finished with a high gloss that brings out the vibrant colors. Artist bio I am a self taught artist practicing chiefly in acrylics. I have been painting for approximately 13 years. My art is active and dynamic, I use bright colors and texture.I am house artist for Riverside Cafe in Motueka, Nelson/Tasman Region, NZ. And I am listed with Art+Soul art agency and Gallery, Auckland. I come from an artistic family and was always encouraged to explore my creative side while growing up. We lived in a very isolated area of the West Coast when I was young and had no electricity or modern convenience's. I think that this played a large part in nurturing my creative side. My art is all about self expression. I love to experiment with paint application and discover new effects. Color and texture are two repeating themes in my work. My art is active and dynamic and I belive it's important to challenge people to experience a personal connection to art. For me art is about getting a reaction. If my art engages people makes them stop to contemplate, if they reach out to touch it or return to it for a second look that is the greatest compliment.

  64. 64. Artist: Wong Hiu Fung, Apple Title: The Red Line Medium: Mixed Media (Acrylic on canvas, thread, hair) Size: 40 cm (h) x 90 cm (w) x 3 pieces Art description In Chinese tradition, &quot;red line&quot; symbolizes fate. Human beings usually separate themselves into different groups. Every life is filled with strangers, people seemingly unrelated. However, no matter where we came from, to have met only once, or even we never met each other, there is always a &quot;red line&quot; connected us. Is it coincidence? Or is it inevitable? collected some hair from my friends and used them in my artwork to symbolize the uniqueness of everybody.

  65. 65. Artist: Lam Tin Na Title: Sublimed Memories 3 Medium: Mixed media on wood Size: 65cm x 60 cm Art description Canvas is like a stage for me to consolidate my memory and my feeling. Through the act of painting, I record my seeing and experiences, which sometimes are even from my dreams of it. Fragmented and forgotten memories in the dreams and reality are juxtaposed, gathered and reconstructed into a form of existence that lies in between the realm of real and unreal. This series of &quot;Sublimed Memories&quot; was inspired by the seasonal change of London, where I tried to consolidate my feeling on the wood. Through a constrained selection of materials and techniques, limited use of colour, I focused my attention to detail and explored the intrinsic quality and texture of the media itself, which lead to much more engaging imaginative terrains. Artist bio Tina Lam ATCL(piano) ATCL(violin) BA(hons)(CUHK) MA(CSM) Tina Lam was born in Hong Kong in 1984. She was trained to be a musician since she was 6, learning violin and piano.

  66. 66. Artist: Wong Chun Hei Title: Torii Medium: Oil on Canvas Size: 140 cm (H) x 210 cm (W) Art description I often walk around slowly inside the video game world until noticing a beautiful landscape scenery, then I will start painting it. Numbers of people have asked me this question, 'Why don't you just paint the &quot;real&quot; landscape rather than this fictitious space?' My answer is that the paintings I done are about the world more realistic than the &quot;real&quot; one. Today, we can easily find people playing with their portable video games when they are on train or on the road. I can judge that those people would get closer with the natural area in video game's world than the one which our bodies can touch with. And although people who play the video games can go through many places in it, their mind of participation in game are bound by the original game rules, thus it is passive in nature. What I am now doing is to set up my own game rule inside the fictitious world. I prefer choosing action games, such as car racing games which require the player to drive fast to compete with others, I will just drive slowly and look for pretty scenery, my works ' Toril', 'Sunflower&quot; and 'The lake' are painted with this rule. Artist bio Learned drawing in Guangzhou when Wong Chun Hei was in form two, making him understand the importance of entire in art making. Graduated from FAA CUHK in 2008, Chun Hei rent a studio in Fotan to continue his art, mainly painting from the scenery of Video Games

Artist: Damon Tong Title: Hey Medium: Artists' name cards (32 designs, 200 each), collage on wall Size: 243cm x 457cm Art description in January 2010 I was invited to participated a group show which featured 32 artists from Hong Kong and Guangzhou. The group show was a part of a festival which stressed the importance of cultural exchange between 2 cities. Failing to know most of the artists of the list and willing to stop myself from embarrassment on the opening night. I started to &quot;google&quot; every artists background, yet all these &quot;research&quot; became the medium of my work. I used the information I found from the internet to design the name cards for every artists on the show. Half of the name cards I produced were used to create a collage work with a hallow Chinese character of &quot;hey&quot; (&quot;hello&quot; equivalent for Southern Chinese) in the middle. The other half of the name cards were given to each exhibiting artists during the opening night as gifts. Artist bio   Damon TONG obtained his BA (Fine Arts) from Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT) / The Art School, Hong Kong Arts Centre in 2008 with a major in painting.

She found that most of the consumers/ girls would like to gain love/sex satisfaction through &quot;YAOI&quot; but not man and women's.

  69. 69. Artist: Lee Kai Chung Title: The Lost Roads no.14 Medium: Pigment print Size: 150 x 98 cm Art description A road / passage is defined by the daily behavior and habit of human being, on the other hand, the human existence transcends the merely geographic location and transforms it from &quot;place&quot; into &quot;space&quot;. Michel de Certeau first creates the term &quot;Narrative action&quot;, which relates to the human behavior that can generate stories. He claims that is a practice of organizing and developing space effectively, in the sense that it rephrases the &quot;place&quot; in a particular time frame and makes it relational. In the past thirty years, the Hong Kong government has been pruning over 300 roads in the record of Highways department, the official reason is large scale construction projects, including domestic housing and commercial buildings. The post-colonial city planning forces the &quot;space&quot; to push away history, as a result, stories are lost, and consequently human behavior is restrained by the stereotype of metropolitan city. &quot;The Lost Roads&quot; is a series of photographs, in which I document the lost roads sites, and present the relationship between the missing and existing stories. The non-durable quality of the photographs enhances the idea of this piece as a city monument. Artist bio  Born and raised in Hong Kong, Lee was graduated in BA Fine Arts from the Chinese University of Hong Kong. He is fascinated by the relationship of time, space and human beings. His recent photography project, The Lost Roads, is about the physical, social and contextual transformation of space, and he further investigate how local inhabitants react to the gradual change of the post-colonial government policy. The sequence of his project work involves scrupulous planning, research and execution, and yet he does not reject randomness and chance encounter throughout the art making process. He is currently working on mockumentary project, Unwelcome Visitors, which is about the history of his home and some unseen visitors that he has been living with him since he was born.

  71. 71. Artist: Lam Tin Na Title: Sublimed Memories 2 Medium: Mixed media on wood Size: 65cm x 60 cm Art description Canvas is like a stage for me to consolidate my memory and my feeling. Through the act of painting, I record my seeing and experiences, which sometimes are even from my dreams of it. Fragmented and forgotten memories in the dreams and reality are juxtaposed, gathered and reconstructed into a form of existence that lies in between the realm of real and unreal. This series of &quot;Sublimed Memories&quot; was inspired by the seasonal change of London, where I tried to consolidate my feeling on the wood. Through a constrained selection of materials and techniques, limited use of colour, I focused my attention to detail and explored the intrinsic quality and texture of the media itself, which lead to much more engaging imaginative terrains.

  77. 77. Artist: Thomas C. Chung Title: &quot;This Is Why I Paint.....&quot; Medium: Yarn & acrylic stuffing Size: Art installation Art description This artwork is part of an ongoing-series that I've been creating in the last few years - knitted sculptures which evoke memories through created objects, drawn from my own childhood & events from my personal relationships. &quot;This Is Why I Paint. . . . .&quot; is an instance of this, reminding myself of why I have chosen to take this path in life - that of an artist, and none other.

  78. 78. Artist: Jane Bennett Title: Industrial Cathedral Mortlake Medium: ink,gouache on paper Size: 104 x 124 cm Art description I paint the damaged, derelict, doomed & disappeared. Through my art I have explored many industrial sites in Sydney that were off limits to the public :Cockatoo Island; Eveleigh Railway Workshops; industrial sites in Pyrmont & Rozelle; the wharves of Barangaroo, Woolloomooloo, Walsh Bay, Glebe Island & White Bay. The astounding rate of Sydney's recent development has both fascinated & repelled me. My challenge is painting to an unknown but inevitable time limit as buildings are demolished as fast as I can paint them. I have an uncanny instinct for selecting subjects that are about to vanish. Ironically the attraction of these places is their poignant impermanence. As a plein air painter, I set up my easel by the side of the road, on windswept rooftops or on demolition sites.The challenges of painting outdoors include distractions from workmen & passers-by, constantly changing light & Sydney's notoriously unpredictable weather. Almost everything that I have painted has either been demolished or changed beyond all recognition: the pubs have been gentrified, working class terraces are replaced by apartment blocks and old warehouses are converted into offices. My paintings show the cycle of abandonment,decay, destruction and renewal of the inner-city landscape - testament to the ending of an era. 'Industrial Cathedral Mortlake', an old gasworks, was a decayed & vandalized relic with a skeletal roof & a crazy zig-zag of buttresses holding up the crumbling walls. For all that it was once a strictly functional industrial building, this building combined the haunting melancholy of a bombed out Gothic cathedral with a whiff of the surrealism of Salvador Dali.
