Meredith Earls / Iridescent

“A phenomenon of surfaces that appear to change hue as the angle of view or the angle of illumination changes. Iridescent is a new body of work exploring new perspectives. Seductive florals intertwine and morph, blooming into new and foreign forms. Magical bird and snake motifs dance together in abundance. Rich imagery is carefully collected,... Read more

Emily Besser / To The Edges: Pieced Work

Within the genre of abstract painting, Emily Besser has been engaging with different ways of picture-making that mimic the patterns and processes of historically domestic and decorative crafts. Emily has used repetitive mark-making to engage with the slow processes of embroidery and weaving and has also drawn on the legacy of geometric patterns belonging to the...

Rachel Hine / Make My Own People

Rachel Hine / Make My Own People

Rachel Hine weaves figurative tapestry inspired by classical portraiture and a strong interest in fashion. Her colourful, and often textural pieces have expressive figures inhabiting a psychedelic landscape. Using a combination of Medieval and Renaissance portraits and contemporary fashion, Rachel has emphasised the pensive and confronting gaze of the subject. The concept of ‘looking’ and... Read more

Anita Beaney / The Untroubled Mind

“The Untroubled Mind is the title of an essay by the painter Agnes Martin. My latest body of work takes its name from that essay in which Martin talks about finding solitude in nature, inspiration and abstraction.I feel I am looking to find peace and inspiration by being in the natural environment. I am hope... Read more

Michelle Kettle / Details

“My current work explores details of buildings and scenes we move through every single day. In capturing these familiar yet sometimes overlooked places my aim is to amplify the mundane and celebrate these unique representations of a specific time and place. They are devoid of human activity yet are often manmade spaces, therefore the viewer can...

Katie Eraser / Perfection isn’t Beautiful, Destruction is Beautiful

Katie Eraser / Perfection isn’t Beautiful, Destruction is Beautiful

Katie Eraser’s most recent body of work is a chaotic reckoning. Focusing on the artist’s primary concern of dismantling the agency to chase impeccability and normativity as an end game. Vibrantly executed by the untamed carnage of her own work, tearing fluoros and bold textures expressively layer paintings. Vivid oil pastels slice and stain painted... Read more
Carla McRae / Full Sun

Carla McRae / Full Sun

Carla McRae – Full Sun “Full Sun is a reflection on a summer spent in Iceland. Co-existing with lava fields, waterfalls, volcanoes, glaciers and craters; shrunken down and humbled by powerful, epic versions of nature. A hyper-awareness of these forces in a land of extreme contrasts. An ever-present sun crawls across the sky, never sinking below... Read more
Mickey Egan / Commute, Day in Day Out

Mickey Egan / Commute, Day in Day Out

“These paintings are part of a continued theme that explores a notion of travel between my home and work place and back again. Through my windscreen, I absorb the landscape, rolling hills, sky, shadow patterns, weather conditions and roadside vegetation, old & new. Often I will stop observe, photograph or draw what I see and... Read more
Kirsten Duncombe / Transmission

Kirsten Duncombe / Transmission

  “The cosmos has long represented ‘the final frontier’ from our human perspective here on Earth. Scientists and astronomers have transmitted coded electronic messages, as well as actual objects, into space for several decades in an attempt to contact possible alien life. I have drawn inspiration from imagery, colours and symbols related to this cosmic... Read more

Steve Singline / In These States of Being

Steve Singline / In These States of Being

“This series of seascapes is a further exploration on the horizon. The horizon is a recurring theme in my work. For me, the horizon is a symbol of the eternal and a point of connection with the temporal. The horizon is the place that is always beyond us, a place never reached. It is also... Read more
