Elizabeth Moyle – Undercurrent

Elizabeth Moyle’s work examines her concept of held space, exploring how time is held through memories and recordings. Moyle is interested in how the present runs through, with, and overlaps with the past.  Her adept handling of media demonstrates not only the artist’s innate abilities but a true sensitivity towards her subject- lending her painted forms an ephemeral quality and yet simultaneously, and seemingly impossibly, monumental presence.

 

Jacob Yikes – Professionally uncomfortable

Professionally uncomfortable is a body of work that further explores the depths of the subconscious mind into areas of vulnerability and discomfort.  Using life experiences to guide the creation of these works I have approached them using nothing but raw feeling and very little solid thought. Painting purely from emotion these works have revealed their true nature and directed me into the somewhat unknown  leaving a mild discomfort within as I try to make sense of the reality around me.
Adrienne Millwood – double mind
Utilising different mediums, including painting, printmaking and photography, double mind takes its starting point in the deep with photographs of vertical sleeping sperm whales. This pattern of unihemispheric slow-wave sleep resonates and intersects with Millwood’s ongoing interest and exploration into the nature of consciousness, perception, and memory as well as her own daily meditation practice. Often obliterating the original reference image with paint, the works provide the ground to literally push and pull time through the process of making.
John Emery – Fabricating Fooleries

John Emery’s process usually begins with a single object, which provides the inspiration for a number of preparatory sketches. The adding of other images and bits and pieces then commences.

The finished works inhabit a space that is both familiar and yet not.

These are articulated through the overlay of imagery, using both watercolour, which by its very nature is unforgiving, combining that with the flexibility of the fabricated objects.

It is not just the objects, but their history and location that provide the inspiration for these works. The paintings combine three-dimensional fabricated paper with trompe loeil illusionism – intersecting at the point where reality, history, and the imagined meet.
