Steve Singline, Still Point

“For this latest series of works, I have returned again to the ocean. The calming waters, the stretch of the horizon, the great expanse of sky. The works speak more of yearning than a pictorial representation of a specific place. Still Point… a moment, a sense of being present with the great beyond.” “The horizon is... Read more

Stacey McCall, Still

“Somewhere between painted and drawn, objects emerge. Marks made more confidently, shapes and light observed more keenly. Quiet, calm….sometimes the less said the better.” Still is Stacey McCall’s latest body of work, continuing once again with the subject of home, but perhaps with a more confident and deliberate mark. Detailed underpainting glows through her gestural brushstrokes,... Read more

“I am fascinated by the visual conventions of street signage and the function of the sign as an informative, yet beautiful image, produced by the correlation of colour and symbol, and its operation at the intersection of both written and visual information. Using paint to produce artworks of gateways, I explore the crossover between what... Read more

Marnie Ross, Summer Projects VII

“This body work is inspired by a recent tour of Central Australia, with a particular focus on the dramatic colours and light experienced in this unique environment. Marnie was captivated by the graphic lines defining the landscape as strong shadows are cast and the red earth and rock is illuminated, particularly during sunrise and sunset.”... Read more

Jahkarli Romanis, Summer Projects VII

‘This ongoing body of work has been created in response to the inaccurate and often reductive representations of Aboriginal peoples created in post-colonial photographs. It explores my own identity as a Pitta Pitta woman and the construction of that identity through photography.” “These photographs are a pursuit for control and agency over my portrayal through...

Michael McCafferty, Summer Projects VII

“This work is part of an on-going exploration into diary keeping, meditations, and translation. Simple parts of day- to- day life; bathroom tiles, schedules, the walk to work, are documented and translated. The translations are simply technical impositions like tracing, collage and re photography. Slowly the materials turn into a composition until finally reduced to... Read more

Rowena Martinich, Summer Projects VII

“The works that I have created for the Summer Projects exhibition further my investigations into the immersive act of painting and colour study within my expressive studio painting practice.Chromatic intensity continues to pervade my work. Giant liquescent gestures sweep, marble and drag across the canvas surface as I build layers of paint on canvases that... Read more
Ember Fairbairn, Summer Projects VII

Ember Fairbairn, Summer Projects VII

Ember Fairbairn’s work endeavours to break spells cast upon her own perception and re-weave new ones, pushing against self-determined boundaries. Against these edges, the painter can sit inside the discomfort of the new, the abject and awkward and also beauty, utilising systems of abstraction to address metaphysical issues. Through gesture and colour, these paintings become... Read more

Amanda Schunker, Summer Projects VII

‘The land we tread is a revered place, it commands one to sit and listen. To be silent in its presence awaiting its tales. To observe every scar and physically interpret that which we know little about. For it can never be taken on as a whole. It’s entirety too magnificent.” “Marks are put down,... Read more

Sarah Kelk, Letting In The Light

The importance of our personal connection to a landscape is often overlooked, but landscapes – and more specifically, the light that surrounds these places – can elicit powerful emotional responses. Letting In The Light by Sarah Kelk explores this idea with a raw and brutal energy.   We all interpret landscapes differently based on experience, intuition and...

Amber Stokie, And So It Goes

Amber Stokie, And So It Goes

“This body of work is about moments: moments of support, moments of togetherness, moments of quiet ritual, moments of love and intimacy within relationships. We have control over the frequency and nature of these moments, we decide who and how we are with others. In today’s disordered and increasingly chaotic world, this acknowledgment seems pertinent...

Cricket Saleh, Howl

Howl and the previous body of work, Dog, are bookends. While Dog conversed with the viewer openly, in the light of day, Howl is the viewers’ subconscious. The conversation is with the self. The viewer is overwhelmed by the previous discussions and retreats inwards. Within the landscape, a tonally monastic set, nature returns, like a... Read more
