SPACE 1 : Blind Exhibition
Cornelia Conway and Marija Newbold

The idea of a “ Blind Exhibition” took hold after discussions over coffee with an apartment dweller who lamented the need to continually wrap and store treasured art pieces. So after house renovations left us with surplus window blinds, the idea of making use of them rather than bequeathing them to landfill, inspired us repurpose them and have some fun with the different lengths. Our idea built an enthusiasm to produce art on blinds of different images to capture colorful and thoughtful interpretations of many ideas that may catch the imagination. With the variety on display, we are hopeful that our aim to repurpose perfectly good materials is achieved. The pieces can be rolled up and transported easily to different locations to cater for people on the move. We feel we have achieved our initial aim not to waste any material that can be reused and repurposed. For us it has been a quirky way to use our artistic imaginations.
We also love the play on words : BLIND EXHIBITION.
It will be amazing what our viewers see as they walk around the gallery.

SPACE 2 : Form and Shadow
Moe Zun

Moe is an emerging artist that explores abstraction in the visual arts by using traditional mediums and computer aided technology to refine her ideas. Her creative process is influenced from studying both industrial and graphic design at UNSW and subsequently working as product designer in both manufacturing and software design sectors.

In her body of work 1: form and shadow, she uses primitive shapes to communicate form with light and shadow to emphasize the depth and size of these forms in a three dimensional space. Her process starts from ideational sketches which allowed her to explore different shapes and compositions. To visualise her ideas in detail, she recreates these ideas digitally in a computer aided design (CAD) environment to explore different variations and changes until desired effects are achieved. By using both manual and digital methods in her process she was able to ensure that the final representation of each piece, drawn manually as pencil on paper, align with her original vision and its intended communication. Through her work, she invites viewers to form their subjective interpretations.

SPACE 3 : Intended Gestures
Nick Berry

These series of paintings presented here relate to these continuing themes, and reflect a continuing development of my creative act and continuing exploration of paintings about painting.

The show explores ideas of gesture, colour, and object intending to challenge viewers’ ideas of traditional painting practices. In using methods of display to explore ideas about the art object, relationships to art history and conventions within painting by exploring a variety of hanging options such as hanging paintings on their side or upside down, materials, and modes of display, of which are to my conversions which seek to challenge traditional conventions of hanging and installation.
The gallery space will provide a more succinct focus on the material properties of these works as they had more space and the viewer could walk around them. Formal qualities such as shape and scale of the paintings, as well as display decisions will be considered here in my use of gravity to act as a natural support for the paintings by having them almost falling over and leaning against the wall and other surfaces.
These works will take the form of text and painted structures which explore painting as a process that can be critiqued and made fun of.
