Ingrid Daniell, Strange Dreams, Under a Full Moon

Ingrid Daniell, Strange Dreams, Under a Full Moon

“Strange Dreams, Under a Full Moon explores the atmosphere, mystery and magic in the places I experienced on my recent travels through remote Western and South Australia. The intensity of my dreams, visions and memories enhanced during the full moon seemed to draw out an even more intimate and intense connection to place and space in... Read more

Stacey McCall, Back Home

Stacey McCall, Back Home

Back Home continues Stacey McCall’s relationship with the importance of home; the objects we are familiar with are the ones which create the environment where we are most at ease, where families live and grow. Her work draws on crockery and furnishings from her 1970’s childhood; they form a beautiful point of interest and remind us... Read more
Seth Searle, It Will Always Be Like This

Seth Searle, It Will Always Be Like This

Artists Lucy Roleff and Seth Searle consider notions of time and narrative in their joint exhibition, It Will Always Be Like This. An abundance of mussels on a table, ripe peaches in a glass dish, everyday domestic arrangements, a hand mid reach – such depictions of the ordinary and the opulent are regarded in equal... Read more

Alizon Gray, seeking silence

Alizon Gray, seeking silence

“My paintings are reflections of my experiences in the world, abstractly recorded as illusory landscapes. The landscape is represented in my paintings as an imagined place, or the in-between space that connects memory and place rather than rendering a particular vista. By building up layers of lines, squiggles, dots, scrubby brush marks, and veils of... Read more

I’m... Read more
Ellie Malin, Marking Time

Ellie Malin, Marking Time

Ellie Malin is a Melbourne based artist working in relief woodblock printing. Her bold, visceral artworks reflect an intuitive approach to image making where colours and form construct the landscape. By choosing mainly formal solutions she engages the viewer with images containing both pure abstraction and evocations of the world around her. “An image may begin... Read more
Beth Gibbeson, Marking Time

Beth Gibbeson, Marking Time

Beth Gibbeson’s current works on paper explore the enchanting rock formations among the cliffs of her local landscape, the Mornington Peninsula coast. The varied surfaces and textures of these large rocks are deep with their natural markings which continue to alter over time within their unique environment. Her works on paper are an abstract interpretation... Read more
Ben Crawford, Marking Time

Ben Crawford, Marking Time

Irish-born Ben Crawford says that his work is “often autobiographical, with stories and characters from my life informing and populating the paintings. I’m interested in the mythologisation of memory.” Now living in northern NSW, surreal elements in Ben’s work transform the traditional landscape into a somewhat mystical realm. “These paintings stem from little kernels of ideas; stories and...

Jordy Kerwick, The Best Hologram Party Host

Jordy Kerwick, The Best Hologram Party Host

“The works are derived from a place within, that struggles with social circumstances and really is happiest at home with my little family. So I get my kicks of colour through painting and making autobiographical work, filled with nostalgia, things I love/hate and things I wished I had or could make. There are no endorsements...

Deb Fisher, You Yangs

Deb Fisher, You Yangs

“It’s so busy in the You Yangs! The seeming calm of the undulating You Yangs from the view from the highway or out the train window belies the extraordinary, almost frenzied activity that takes place during the parks opening hours on the weekends. This is always my initial sensation when I arrive at one the... Read more
David Beaumont, You Yangs

David Beaumont, You Yangs

“These paintings are part of an ongoing exploration of works in a monochromatic palette referencing the Australian Landscape and its history of First Nations people. The paint surface becomes allegorical of layers, erasure, presence and past.” “As a painter I am interested in a sensory interpretation of the Australian landscape. I would spend a great deal...

Natalie Anderson, You Yangs

Natalie Anderson, You Yangs

“Already a beloved, if not regular subject in my paintings, the You Yangs are a familiar hunkering presence on the skyline for dwellers and visitors in our region. So familiar perhaps, that we lose the significance and wonder surrounding these ancient granite hills. I drive past them every day, shimmering there in the distance, so... Read more
Shelley McKenzie, You Yangs

Shelley McKenzie, You Yangs

“Bruce Pascoe in his book Dark Emu describes how one of John Batman’s men , Andrew Todd sketched the Wadda wurrung women cultivating huge tracts of land with yam daisy or murnong. These little sweet potatoes send up yellow flowers. The You Yangs are now seasonally flanked by tracts of yellow flowers-now canola. The paintings... Read more
Jordy Kerwick, You Yangs

Jordy Kerwick, You Yangs

“I have been driving back and forth past the You Yangs my whole life, yet I can count the times on one hand that I’ve actually visited the national park. This being said, the You Yangs have maintained three very distinct feelings for me. 1st, a sense of mysticism – the large mountainous landscape providing... Read more
Cricket Saleh, You Yangs

Cricket Saleh, You Yangs

Cricket’s art has long referenced current thoughts in relation to human consumption, and the practices accepted as a by product of this desire dressed as need. The current work is interested in the coupling of this feverish consumption of newness, to an assumed happy first world existence for a modern society. Cricket is both a... Read more
