FRONT GALLERY

QUIET PATH
by Shawn Lu

Quiet Path explores the contrast between the idyllic landscape and its surrounding neglect.
Burnt out cars, broken houses and the encroaching flora suggest a setting for contemporary folk-lore, and remind the viewer that nothing is certain. Romanticism, tragedy, and an awareness of one’s mortality influence the narrative within the works, which are created through a detailed and immersive approach to pen and ink drawings on paper.

 

BACK GALLERY

ON THE ROAD
by Rebecca Armstrong 

The works in ‘On the Road’ look closely at the fragile and beautiful cycle of life and death. A process that is both simple and mysterious to us. My works mimic physical processes of the material world while also holding space for metaphysical concepts of mortality and fragility. I hope to create a deep reflection for the viewer through bodies that move from abstract blurs into grotesque detail. These works are a meditation, slow in creation and slow in destruction.

 
UPSTAIRS GALLERY

SOLACE
by Damien Orriss

The work focuses on the spiritual and emotional connections of individuals in isolation and how through human movement and gesture this isolation can reach the innermost emotional core of the self.

Damien Orriss is an emerging new media artist with a fine art photographic background specializing in analogue and digital photographic and installation design. Along with his practice as a fine art photographer and media artist he has been an arts educator for the past 15 years. Damien Orriss’ art practice has mainly focused on the subject matter of the human emotive experience, and also our interaction to the natural and constructed environments.
