FRONT GALLERY : : THE GOD OF SMALL THINGS by Bec Armstrong

‘The God of Small Things’ is a collection of symbols of life and death. These objects may be small and often overlooked however they represent the pivotal metaphysical process of life, death and decay; the transient nature of our existence which is greater than the individual and effects every living thing on the planet. This collection of works aims to represent the sometimes subtle processes that are happening all around us and shows us the beauty that can be found in even the smallest of things if you take the time to stop and look.

BACK GALLERY : : EYE OF OUR ANCESTORS by Amanda Wright

These series of portraits are drawn from Amanda’s Palawan heritage. She connects to her ancestors through the portraits she paints. They celebrate the diversity of Australia’s First Nation People, depicting strength and beauty as well as their connection to spirit and land as part of the oldest living culture in the world.

SIDE GALLERY : : SOMEDAY SUMMER by Lori Camarata

‘Someday Summer’ is a series of gouache paintings and ceramic objects exploring summer day recollections stored. These joyful paintings celebrate the everyday of summertime, capturing the stillness of the warmer months, the shifting light of the sun and shadows, combined with a playful peek inside moments of daydreaming.

UPSTAIRS GALLERY : : JUST BOARDED, SEE YOU SOON by Alexis Winter

Growing up, half of my immediate family lived in Australia while the other half lived in Sweden. I was raised with a smattering of both cultures, and while the constant overseas travel afforded me many extraordinary experiences as a child, it also meant that I was eternally separated from half of my family. A constant loop of absence. Fortunately, I discovered quickly that the closeness between individuals is not measured geographically. ‘Just Boarded, See You Soon’ explores the coming together of my two worlds, and the strong impact both cultures have had on my life, development, and sense of self.
