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: 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.

to Mar 3

CONCERT: Marimba & Shakuhachi

The unique pairing of spiritually expressive shakuhachi and sonorous, lively marimba creates a rich tapestry of timbral colours. From the stillness of the breath to outbursts of percussive dialogues, the musical lifeforce is woven between these traditional and contemporary instruments in a program of repertoire and original compositions.

EXHIBITION: Polly Hollyoak - Cacophony
Jan

to Feb 3

EXHIBITION: Polly Hollyoak - Cacophony

“Straddling the boundaries between abstraction and representational forms, my work explores, colour, pattern and layering through the medium of painting. As a female artist I am particularly drawn to the imagery used in the marketing towards women. I find society’s obsession intriguing and my work intends to reflect this.”

EXHIBITION: Gillian Lever - Sustain and release
Jan
9
to Jan 20

EXHIBITION: Gillian Lever - Sustain and release

‘Perfusion’ is a term describing the distribution of fluid within a bodily organ. Sustain and release is a work that aims to perfuse the environment it occupies — filling up trajectories or streamlines, without destroying or displacing what's already there. When you perfuse an organ, you don’t change its shape or size. You add to it in such a way that it either thrives or is poisoned.
