  5. 9. Artist: Julian Clavijo Title: HUMAN DISINTEGRATION Medium: Wood and acrilyc paint Size: 300cm x 275cm Art description: &quot;This artwork was created with the purpose of transmitting the fragility of a human being represented by the portrait of a real child holding a bullet belt. This brings back to children around the world suffering from corruption, violence, wars and starvation. The fragility and innocence of a child against the poison of war are shown together, representing how humanity is being disintegrated by the armed and the power domination by unfaithful politics&quot; 3045 wood cubes individually placed and painted as pixels, are the essence of the work. Every single cube was cut, painted and crafted by the artist. Each cube plays a roll as individual separated from the ones around, giving the overall notion of disintegration. This way, the viewer at floor level can barely realize what is the artwork about but can see in detail the materialization of it. On the other hand, watched from above, the viewer has the chance to encounter from the distance what is the whole image about in detail. The act of the viewer being above the artwork to be able to look at it becomes an implicit message of the work Artist bio: Julian Clavijo is currently a post-graduate candidate at RMIT University. His field of study is Art in Public Space . A committed object maker, Julian has focused his research through the practice of material engagement. He has explored urban space and transformation through a practical study of pattern and colour shift in the changing city.
  6. 11. Artist: Cara-Ann Simpson Title: Melbourne sonic skyline: Studley Park Rd Medium: ink infused metal Size: 32.5 x 65 cm Art description: This artwork depicts the night skyline of Melbourne City from Studley Park Road, Kew - just over the Johnston Street Bridge, Abbotsford. In the foreground is a spectral analysis of a soundwave from recordings taken on Johnston St, Abbotsford. By incorporating a visual analysis of sound recordings from the area I am presenting works that encompass the physical space as both a visual representation and an aural analysis. Artist bio: Cara-Ann Simpson (b. 1985) is a multidisciplinary artist with a focus on sculpture, sound, space and the participant. Cara-Ann is concerned with modes of listening/hearing in social situations and how people interact with sound. In 2010, Cara-Ann received an ArtStart grant from the Australia Council for the Arts to attend the IEEE International Conference on Multimedia & Expo (ICME2010, Singapore) where she presented a paper with collaborator Eva Cheng (research engineer) on an interactive sound installation. The Janet Holmes á Court Artists' Grant Scheme supported the development of this installation in 2009, and Cara-Ann was subsequently featured in Real Time Magazine's online Studio section. She graduated with a Bachelor of Visual Arts First Class Honours from the University of Southern Queensland in 2008, and received the University of Southern Queensland Faculty of Art - Visual Arts medal in 2007. Simpson was the recipient of the Hobday and Hingston Bursary from the Queensland Art Gallery in 2007 for being the most promising undergraduate student from a Queensland tertiary art course. Cara-Ann also received the Asia-Pacific Golden Key International Honours Society Visual & Performing Arts Sculpture Award (2008), and was short-listed in the Wilson HTM National Art Prize (2009), and Agendo (2009). Simpson has had a number of solo exhibitions, sound releases and been involved in numerous performances and group shows within Australia, New Zealand and the United Arab Emirates. Cara-Ann is the 2011-2012 Electrofringe Co-Producer (annual electronic arts festival and year-round programming), and is currently working on several collaborative and solo projects in Melbourne, Australia.
  7. 13. Artist: Cara-Ann Simpson Title: Sonic Architecture #1 Medium: acrylic on MDF Size: 45.0 x 90.0cm Art description: This painting is from a body of work about Bundoora Homestead - a historic house (turned contemporary art gallery and cafe) in Bundoora, Melbourne. The painting depicts a singular moment in time taken from phase analyses of recordings of the site. The phase analyses has been reduced into a linear reference that is chiseled into the surface of the artwork forming shadows within the pictorial plane. Artist bio: Cara-Ann Simpson (b. 1985) is a multidisciplinary artist with a focus on sculpture, sound, space and the participant. Cara-Ann is concerned with modes of listening/hearing in social situations and how people interact with sound.

  8. 15. Artist: Cara-Ann Simpson Title: Merri Creek construction Medium: ink infused metal Size: 67 x 100 cm Art description: This work uses a photograph of the Merri Creek near where it meets the Yarra River in the Yarra Bend Park, Abbotsford. This site is significant to the Wurundjeri people and was a location for large gatherings; it is also a potential site for one of the earliest land treaties between Indigenous Australians and European settlers, as well as the site of the Merri Creek Aboriginal School and Assistant Protector William Thomas' hut. Within this artwork it is apparent that there has been great change to the site since European settlement with the footbridge in the background, as well as the Eastern Freeway, signage, and a road depicted. I am interested in the integration of architectural structures within the environment and am particularly drawn to this site due to the aesthetic appeal of the joining of the artificial and natural. The work also integrates a visual representation of sound from the area - this sound sample is of current construction (Feb-April 2011) as well as the ever present rumble of both the river and the traffic over the freeway. A temporary office and two cranes are apparent in the background of the artwork. Artist bio: Cara-Ann Simpson (b. 1985) is a multidisciplinary artist with a focus on sculpture, sound, space and the participant. Cara-Ann is concerned with modes of listening/hearing in social situations and how people interact with sound.

  9. 17. Artist: David-Ashley Kerr Title: I hear the River Medium: Lighjet Print Size: 80 x 140 cm Art description: Conceived with both time and place in consideration, this image attempts to engage in memory the sensory element of audible sound, to situate the viewer within the perspective of the lone subject. The lone subject lingers in a void between the experience and a response to their environment. These continuous visual planes that represent vast environments allude to the timelessness of nature, in my attempt to consolidate both contemporary and historical time, to then allow the placing of a subject to become an entirely active study into man and site, culture and environment.

Artist: Christian Vallejos Title: Bob Marley - Waiting In Vain Medium: Pencil Size: A3 size: 420 x 297 mm Art description: &quot;Bob Marley - Waiting In Vain&quot; was created using pencil and my hands while listening to Bob Marley songs, also to motivate me and give me an adrenalin to create. Artist bio: My Name is Christian Jordan Vallejos, born September 25 1992. I am 18 years old, I grew up in Melbourne Victoria Australia, and always had a passion for Art. As a kid I would focus all my attention in my art and realized this is what i wanted to do for the rest of my life. At the age of twelve I went to Africa with my family for 4 months and became aware of the suffering around us and was inspired to create images displaying poverty and the suffering of others around us, my goal was to make this aware to the more fortunate people in our modern society. My drawing &quot;Hungry&quot; was accepted into an art gallery in New Port, at the age of 16 I started to play tropical instruments such as the ukulele, the conga drum and electric jazz Guitar. I realized I got the same peace and felling at playing music as I did with my Art and wanted to do both. I became inspired by the work of David Garibaldi and started to use my music as a motivation to create and now I want others to see and feel my work the way i did. Currently I'm studying at CAE doing an Visual Arts Certificate 3 and hoping to make my work publicized in the feature.

  29. 57. Artist: Liz Lacey Title: Tribal City 1 Medium: acrylic paint and collage on canvas Size: 1200 x 900 cm Art description: A series of paintings whose images unsettle the viewer with the convergence of binary opposites.

Artist bio: I am a Melbourne based emerging artist who engages in teaching and practise of art. I gained my Bachelor of Education (Art and Craft) @ Melbourne University, completing major studies in painting, drawing, printmaking, ceramics, woodwork and textiles.

Enactment of mark-making and the compelling impact of indexical residue directs my embrace of Koestler's concept of creativity as '...a process where the teacher and pupil are located in the same individual...&quot;. In 2010 I was awarded K.V.T.A acquisitional Gouache prize for my painting, 'GariwerDrama&quot;.

  31. 61. Artist: Atoosa shokoohi Title: Human Nature Medium: Oil on Canvas. Size: H 75 -W 56 Art description: In this piece illustrates the Human's inner strength and devotion towards one another in times of despair. It is about how we naturally draw towards another in troubling times when they need us most. As human beings we are all connected to one another and our presence deeply and directly affects others. Just like the roots of trees we hold on to each other and grow stronger when we unite. Art has always taken a big part of my life, I Paint to express myself and also to detach from this commercialized world and think of a place that only exists in my head. Artist bio ATOOSA ATASHIN Born 1985 in Tehran, Persia, Currently living in Melbourne Australia. I have graduated in 2005 Bachelor of Industrial Design from RMIT University. I'm currently working part time on my new paintings. My style of painting is Surrealism, I've always been inspired by Salvador Dali's work and I admire his creativity. I believe being an Artist isn't just about creating something unusual and out of ordinary, it's about the depth, techniques and the message in the art work. Art is about introducing a different aspects and vision to the viewers and giving them a unique feeling.

  44. 87. Artist: Lizzie Pogson Title: In Praise of Shadows Medium: Sound Art Size: 9 Minutes Art description: &quot;In Praise of Shadows&quot; is a transitional sonic work constructed by using both natural and synthetic sound sources. Inspired by Barry Truax's 'walkman phenomenon', this work creates locational ambiguity by placing the listener within a series of hyper-real sonic environments. Real-world sounds are no longer tied to their original mechanisms, and synthetic sounds become believable within realistic aural spaces. As part of the creation of this work I made a series of field recordings in Japan using both binaural and stereo recording microphones. This work is part of a series of sound works that explores the spatial boundaries of what the listener perceives to be 'normal'. The playback of these recordings through loudspeakers (and not headphones), further obscures the listeners sense of space. ** The stereo file of this work is usually 143.8 MB, however, it is impossible for the work to be compressed to under 1MB like an image can be. In hope that this work can be included in this competition, a sample of the work can be heard here : http://lizziepogson.com/soundbites Artist bio: Lizzie's sound art practice involves the collection of field recordings and abstraction of this material to create discrete zones of aural experience. By juxtaposing natural and synthetic sound material in different combinations recorded natural spaces act as environments for the inclusion of synthetic sounds and vice versa. Lizzie has exhibited and performed her compositions in the Melbourne International Arts Festival, Liquid Architecture Festival (Melbourne), at West Space Gallery (Melbourne) and at Project Space Gallery (RMIT, Melbourne) for the group show 'Magnetic Traces' in 2010. She has also collaborated with sound artists Philip Samartzis and Camilla Hannan for live multichannel performances. Most recently, Lizzie was selected for the 'Hatched' exhibition to be held at the Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts in April/May 2011. Lizzie has also been commissioned to write a new composition for the Parisonic Festival to be held in Paris (2011). Lizzie lives in beautiful regional Victoria.

Artist: Catherine van Wilgenburg Title: The Land of Iramoo Medium: Oil on Canvas Size: 2m x 2m Art description: 'Iramoo'*, the original Woiworung language name for the great grassy plains that once encircled the Melbourne area, is the inspiration for contemporary landscape paintings of St Albans, Cairnlea and Caroline Springs. This work is about connecting with the land in my own backyard - in Melbourne's West. Suburban homes are perched perilously and shallowly on top of deep layers of ground containing stencil images of indigenous flora and fauna It is part of the series 'Connecting with the Land', in which I put together our white settler past within the present landscape to see how disconnection from this land determines current beliefs and behaviours about the land in our own backyards. The landscapes are drawn from the 35 hectares at the Iramoo Sustainable Living Centre in St Albans and Cairnlea, at which I am Convenor of The Friends of Iramoo.

This stands 95cm high and is 30cm wide - weight approx. 20kg. Artist bio: Jo is a former teacher now mixed-media artist who creates a new life from the bibs and bobs she gathers from others. She began some 4 years ago with a basic mosaics course, but has devoted herself more seriously to her art since selling her environmental business some 12 months ago. She works from her home studio in Montmorency Victoria. Motivation &quot;In a throw-away world I hope that my pieces encourage people to think about the possibilities encapsulated in the ephemera in their life. What can they do with those broken or mismatched pieces of china that still hold memories but are no longer of use? Re-crafting other people's waste is an aesthetic and absorbing pursuit, and I hope my art pieces act as symbols of the beauty that is in everything, and a peaceful protest against the vain pursuit of 'more and more stuff'. &quot;I am constantly inspired by the creativity of other artists. I get most of my ideas from strolling through second-hand shops which are full of surprises and opportunities. It is inspiring to re-craft other people's castoffs into pieces of art that I find beautiful.&quot; Exhibitions Diversity of Life, City of Whittlesea, 2010 9 x 5, Walker Street Gallery, 2010 &quot;She who loves&quot;, Walker Street Gallery, 2011 &quot; Creativity Unlocked&quot;, TheTown Hall Gallery, 2011

  56. 111. Artist: ying huang Title: kelly Medium: oil Size: 30x36inch Art description: Work one Title: Kelly Kelly (2011) is a highly personalised portrait based on the death mask of Edward Kelly, who was executed in 1880 at the Old Melbourne Gaol in Melbourne, Australia. The work invites the viewer to explore the difficulties of condemning the 'criminal' whilst simultaneously accepting the State's power to take life. The larger than life Kelly projects outwards, confronting the viewer with questions such as whether 'guilt' necessarily equates to 'evil', whether 'innocence' and 'guilt' are mutually exclusive, or when innocence (in a legal sense) becomes 'evil'. Although the death penalty has long since been abolished in Australia, Kelly recalls a relatively recent period in our history and reminds us of the shift that has since occurred in the local socio-political landscape. Accordingly, the work serves as a symbol of the fickle and sometimes arbitrary nature of conventional public morality and promotes the value in constantly questioning and re-examining that morality, particularly when it is codified into law. Finally, the viewer is invited to simply identify with Kelly as a fellow human being and to consider whether it is a mere trick of time, space and circumstance that separates us from the subject and his fate. Artist bio: Biography - Ying Huang I was born in North East China, arrived in Australia Melbourne in 2001 and am presently completing a bachelor of fine art at RMIT majoring in printmaking. Finalist Calleen Art Award 2011.

The featuring of the world map expresses humanity on a global scale, while the colorful abstract depicts the ideas/notions that come about as a result of human thought.

Artist bio: With numerous solo and group exhibitions, as well as being selected as a finalist in numerous high-profile awards, Rehgan De Mather has quickly established himself as a young artist to watch. Since completing his BVA at Monash University Gippsland in 2001 De Mather has held 17 solo exhibitions and been involved in over 30 group exhibitions throughout Australia. He has been selected as a finalist three times in the Brett Whiteley Travelling Art Scholarship, twice in the Sunshine Coast Art Prize, John Leslie Art Prize & Arc Yinnar Drawing Prize, as well as being a finalist in the Prometheus Art Award, Araluen Art Prize, City of Whyalla Art Prize, Agendo Art Award, Black Swan Prize for Portraiture & Stanthorpe Arts Festival.

De Mather was born in Adelaide, grew up in Sale and currently lives and works in Melbourne. &quot;Rehgan De Mather's paintings replicate the traces of industry, and the cryptograms of graffiti, on walls of contemporary spaces.

Rehgan's prolific output of work, for such a young artist, seems to be riding on a distinctly serious but fun attitude. His work is exciting because it is raw and has a genuine interest in the noises and signs that clutter urban spaces.&quot; David O'Halloran, Curator, Glen Eira City Gallery
