Diary of Earthly Things – Leah Koutroumanos

Through a painting practice focused on representation and mimetic rendering, my work addresses illusive moments of everyday experience. By aesthetically assessing my domestic space, I have developed a body of watercolour paintings that depict isolated subjects, such as residual objects and fragments. Referring to the genre of still life and trompe-l’oeil, my small format compositions are descriptive, precise and diaristic. A testimony to the lived experience, painting from life produces nuance and ambiguity which challenges the search for truth, and any notion of realism. My work is an anthropological investigation which explores the fundamentally human attachment to the material world. The relevance of this is emphasized by the social circumstances of the pandemic in which these paintings have been conceptualized.

Data and Dirt – Sandra Cowan

This body of work is about place, and the ineffable quality of place. I am curious about the numinous quality we experience in some places, sometimes known as spirit of place, or by the Tibetan word drala, which may be easier to perceive in places that are known as spiritual or sacred sites. It is something we can perceive and that affects us when we are at the site, but cannot easily be communicated through photography, language, quantification, or anything beyond direct experience.

re (Read) – Don Ahnahnsisi McIntyre

(re)Read superimposes is a small collection of legal words and phrases, used to describe indigenous states of being, that most people don’t understand.  We accept this unrecognizable jargon without question.  In the work of Reconciliation, it is essential that we all question what the law, and our governments write as right.  Superimposing traditional iconography, I have written the stories of Aboriginal peoples and matched those with Western treatise.  The result is an artistic and social bricolage that we must work to comprehend.

Burrows & Bungalows – Leila Armstrong

Burrows & Bungalows – Leila Armstrong Artist’s Statement: There is a disconnect between people’s everyday lived experience and their conception of nature as something external and removed.

The Dancers – Maria Riviere

The Dancers I:  dried plants and yarn I find that the most important part of this project is the mind and body processes. A logical process intertwined with intuition, free association, gestural movements, repetition, and colour. This research–driven work combines art theories, movements, artists’ influence, and my exploration. The work, developed during the COVID-19 pandemic, […]
