Helen Gauchat: Shadow Play

"Living in rural Australia, I am always aware of the light. As we know, it can be brash and it can be divinely subtle. However, more often than not, it is the shadows which capture me. What is the point of featuring the highlights in a composition if you ignore the shadows? Shadows ground the work - they give it dimension and context.

In this exhibition I am showing still lives both real and imagined and sometimes a combination of both.

Influences and artists I go to regularly are Giorgio Morandi, Margaret Preston, Matisse and Jude Rae"

Gabrielle Collins: City & Bridge

"In the exhibition ‘City & Bridge’ I am drawn again to urban spaces in varying locations. I paint whatever resonates or engages. This may be the architectural dynamics of buildings on the water’s edge or the strong verticals of a bridge. It may simply be a street on a rainy day. My initial response then merges with remembered experiences, often filtering through and modifying the painting process”  - Gabrielle Collins.

Tim Allen: Fissure

"This exhibition is about geography, geology, contour, place and memory. The drawings were created en plein air in the gorge country of New England.

At the heart of my art practice is a paradox; an expressive, bold, immediate and spontaneous mark-making that is also aligned to an approach that has structure, discipline and a sense of stillness and contemplation" - Tim Allen.

Phil McCormack: The Binary Perspective

"My history and experience working in the building and construction industry as a boilermaker welder by trade, has in some ways had an impact on my paintings and design. Which in turn has influenced me on my journey to working as an artist in the two-dimensional mediums of drawing and painting. My work in graphic design via tools such as Adobe Photoshop and Corel Painter is an extension of my overall life experience in algorithmic form.

The advancements in technology and applications has opened up another pallet for me to express myself out of the physical and into the binary world. Calling on my years in construction and building, some of my works have an industrial feel to them brought about by gathering inspiration and initial materials and colours from the real world and bringing them into my art"
