Lance Delary-Simpson / タップダンスシチー What is it Gallant Steed? Tap Dance City

What is it Gallant Steed? Tap Dance City is a tempered enquiry into cultural bias between dangerous, erotic and at times hilarious visual interactions. Using little to no filter when focusing on subject matter enables Lance Delary-Simpson to sample visual, theatrical and lyrical tensions. Ranging from the seductive flow, or minimal floral arrangement to the flight... Read more

Darren McGinn / Building Blocks

Building Blocks explores what it is that begins to create nascent place within the rapid construction of ‘packaged’ communities and exposes the problem of how do established communities retain a sense of place within the relentless...

15 things about Arthur Bannon

  1. I currently have a sprained Pelvis. It’s not a sex injury. Stop being a pervert. 2. A part of me thinks asking an artist about their art is like asking a hen about its eggs. Just shut up and eat the eggs. 3. Another part of me (I believe it’s called the Ego)... Read more

Natalie Anderson / Meetings with the Southern Ocean

Natalie Anderson / Meetings with the Southern Ocean

At its heart my art practice is driven by the desire for life long learning. Living a ‘sea affected life’ (to borrow words from Mick Sowry) in the shadow of the ancient You Yangs, the landscape and the ocean around our beautiful town continues to be enough to keep me captivated as an artist and...
