FRONT GALLERY : : THE RISE & FALL by HA HA

The Rise & Fall fuse’s the techniques of stenciling & drawing . It is an exploration into Polynesian & popular culture by means of portraiture highlighted by motifs common to the ancestral background of Melbourne artist Regan Tamanui better known as street artist HA HA. Rise & Fall examines the natural cycles within & around us, the symbols the unspoken language of the subconscious in a contemporary context from Polynesian symbolism to the emoticons in the age of the internet.

BACK GALLERY : : REFLECTION by CAITLIN RIGBY
This recent body of work explores portraiture. In these paintings, the facial features have been left empty and hollow. I have developed the presence of my subjects, through the build-up of abstract painting techniques, using shape, line and colour to suggest the form and its existence.

UPSTAIRS GALLERY : : RAVE IN PARADISE by ALEXIA BREHAS & CHANELLE NILLSON
Two sides of the same coin: light and dark, heaven and hell, black and white, impermanence and immortality. Each are opposites, yet rely on the other to exist. Rave In Paradise (RIP) explores life and death in its most blithe and buoyant form:
laughing in the face of death and chasing endless bliss.Who says life stops when you die? Exhibiting together for the first time, Alexia Brehas and Chanelle Nillson invite you to enter their monochromatic world.

SIDE GALLERY : : WEAPONS OF MATHS DISTRACTION by LIAM SNOOTLE
These group of paintings are an exploration of deconstructed geometry and gravitational forces. They are charged with the task of finding a cohesive balance between what can be controlled and what cannot.
Each piece is a deliberate attempt to contradict the natural rules of geometry, yet each finds balance through the orientation that gravitational forces have enforced upon them.
