EXHIBITION: Sharron Okines - Kitchenalia

Translating vintage op shop treasures through my work constructs my imagined family history. As a migrant child, these are the everyday “Kitchenalia” I dream belonged in my Grandmothers’ and Great Aunts’ kitchens. Memory, love, loss. Each object feels like an homage to my unknown elders.

EXHIBITION: Peter McIlwain - Solo Exhibition

Peter McIlwain’s work in this exhibition features hand drawn images of birds with textures generated by software (coded by the artist). This is typical of the artist’s life-long concern to find the “ghost in the machine” by combining the possibilities of computers with the direct expression of the body.

EXHIBITION: Fiorella Giarrusso - Solo exhibition

Returning from a visit to the ‘Twelve Apostles’ along the Great Ocean Road, this breathtaking view of the unruly sea stayed with me... Nature’s awe-inspiring splendour is reflected in the colourful mottled sky, as well as in the rugged cliffs – it was very satisfying to capture this immense vista.
