SPACE 1
EDDY BURGER
The antelope tree and other playful grotesqueries
Eddy’s drawings are typically humorous, surreal, weird. independent, unplanned spontaneous creations that stem from the unconscious as well as prompts and/or the intention to be weird and unusual, the naked outpourings of his warped yet fun-loving mind. They speak of his love for sci-fi, fantasy, animals, dinosaurs, weirdness, humour and storytelling via absurd scenarios, twisted caricatures and fantastical creatures.
Eddy is an anti-realist. He may reflect on real needs, actions and tension, but generally only obliquely, creating more a product of the internal world than reality. There are no true-to-life, everyday concerns represented here, folks. He does not engage with popular current issues. Common themes include animal liberation, human-animal hybrids, consensual monster sex, cats, joy, humour, grotesqueness, and anything else interesting.

LULU LALA
Pretty Ugly

These 7 masks explore the crossover between beauty and ugliness. For example, fragility is horrific and at the same time beautiful.
Each mask was created from a clay sculpt, and then rendered in paper mâché. The time consuming process of layering paper gave the masks a chance to speak to the maker and inform the next step of bringing out the character, with colour, texture, enhancement and embellishment. The emerging entity captured the delicate, divine, dazzling, and charming as well as the distorted, bizarre, the vile and
grotesque facets of each.
Lulu likes to make things and has made a huge array of things over 40 years for exhibitions, community performances, puppet shows, theatre shows and films.

SPACE 2 : Group Show PERSPECTIVES

ASHEG BROM
Haiku of the Tree Planter
Once upon a time
During an unwritten dawn
Lived an unsung star
She planted flora
That allured feathered fauna
Spreader of tranquil
Blurred by the rat race
Invisible in plain sight
Here she did her work
Her hands created
The land of the beautiful
With little reward
Time has forgotten
Her name, her hopes and her dreams
Yet we breathe her work
They live among us
The star’s copious children
They deserve your smile

SHELLEY HALL
Water Spirits
Often depicted as beautiful maidens or mermaids, water nymphs
(or naiads) are spiritual creatures that preside over rivers, streams and other bodies of fresh water. Referencing the local river and the female form, I have put together a series of work that celebrates this life force. Rivers move through the landscape, connecting us to both land and sea. They are often perceived as Edenic, a place of abundance and natural beauty. The water spirits are transparent and almost weightless. They merge with the flowing water, evoking both a sense of stillness and movement. Like the river itself,constant yet ever changing.

LEANNE BEGGS
Exploring with colour ,depth and texture , reinventing recycled materials and objects, converting the domestic and mundane into extraordinary fabulousness.

MARY STONE
Found Objects. On the floor. Under footstools. Against shelves. Between books. In the gutter. Around the streets. Begging to be picked up.
I am Glue Girl. Epoxying the pox.
