Now you see me, 2010 
Acrylic on canvas

SOLD

Abigail Gregory is a 2010 graduate of the Tasmanian School of Art

This body of work was initiated by an intense interest in dress and how it shapes identity. From the initial ideas surrounding dress, identity and disguise my work shifted to gradually focus upon how the individual functions within society. The concept of dress was eliminated to be replaced with the functions of camouflage, influence and manipulation; elements that society forces upon individuals daily.

As a result the work has come to embody the concept that individuals are simply a construct of society, shaped and influenced by their surroundings and interactions with others. The manner in which the work was articulated shifted with the alteration of the concept. The work became increasingly abstracted and focused upon how form, colour and line could be used to create visual discord to communicate the flexible nature of social identity. From a far reaching theme of dress, the project became an investigation into my own construction of self-identity within society and my daily feeling of discord as I navigate the external environment. - Abigail Gregory

ALEXI FREEMAN
Body of Arrows, 2004
Drypoint etching
99 x 78cm

SOLD

Alexi Freeman began his creative journey as an artist in Hobart, attending the University of Tasmania majoring in printmaking and sculpture. He then continued to hone his aesthetic in New York, developing his practice bridging art, fashion and costume, before returning to Melbourne to launch his eponymous fashion label ALEXI FREEMAN (est. 2006). Since then Freeman’s fierce determination and creative energy combined with his nous for business have created a strong platform from which his brand continues to grow. 
This collection of drypoint etchings were developed during his sketches for The Torso Collection, (2005-2006). The artist overlayed patterns onto a silhouette of his own torso dimensions to create a suite of six self-portraitorial images that spoke of both Alexi’s personal experience and of his relationship to the Tasmanian environment.

Hobart artist Andrea Jordan graduated from the Tasmanian School of Art in 2002 with a Bachelor of Fine Art (Honours) and then continued her studies at the Charlie Sheard Studio School in Sydney, undertaking an intensive three year painting course on the techniques of the Old Masters.

When they were children, my father and his brothers and sisters used to scour the neighborhood looking for pictures of roses on biscuit tin lids or old calendars, which my grandfather would then paint on the dining room walls, above the dado. For as long as I can remember, my mother has grown roses, which she adores, and she has won many prizes with them in local garden clubs and rural shows. I understand my grandfather’s and my mother’s love for roses; their beauty captivates me in all stages of their development, from bud to rosehip.

Roses have been grown throughout history for their beauty and fragrance; they have long been used to represent that most basic of human emotions, love. Petrified wreaths of roses have been discovered in tombs of the ancient Egyptians. Fossilized roses have been found even from pre-historic times. The rose still remains a revered symbol in daily life.

I studied traditional oil painting techniques in Sydney following completion of a Fine Arts degree at UTAS. The paintings in this exhibition have evolved towards abstraction and stylization in exploration of those techniques and in response to the exotic forms and colours of the roses.

Painting a rose is similar to unraveling a puzzle. All roses are bound to follow their predestined form but every one is unique. The folds of the velvety petals flow smoothly or dip and curl unexpectedly, the colours astonish in their variety, exuberance or subtlety and the sunlight illuminates their delicacy and transparency. There is beauty even in their decay, but sadness as the final petals fall to the ground.

I will always be inspired by the beauty of a rose. – Andrea Jordan

Location: Print Rack

In 2010 Angela completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts with a double major in Printmaking ang Painting at the Tasmanian School of Art. She now works as an Art Therapist.

My relationship to place and how this relates to my surrounding environment constitutes the basis of my work. It fluctuates between my time spent in the city and the Tasman Peninsula. Each work relies upon fragmented pictorial space, painterly processes such as dripped and rubbed back paint, working with solvents and glazing to create these aims. In some of my paintings I use lino cuts and stencils.

One of the main characteristics of my work is the physical deployment of ink and paint. I take into account the materiality, effects of absorption, colour, transparency and coverage as part of the articulation of the motif. While the image acts as a starting point, it is in the act of making the print or painting that invention takes over. On a path between representation and abstraction I construct an assemblage of transposable components where the visual fragments of the city and nature appear and dissolve.

As an artist my interest in working with the landscape developed originally in response to my experiences of both an intimate and distant perspective of the Australian landscape. Travel to and across remote and isolated environments, observing patterns and processes within nature informed my work from 1994 onwards.

When one moves through the landscape it is not merely a particular view one remembers, but a complex unfolding of experiences and sensations that occur over a period of time. - Anne Morrison

Anne Morrison was born in Glasgow, Scotland in 1966, and currently lives and works in Hobart. She is a graduate of Glasgow School of Art, the Royal College of Art London and completed a Phd at The University of Tasmania in 1999. In 1988 Anne won The Elizabeth Greenshields Award, The Ensign Award RCA and The British Institution Fund 1990, Scottish Arts Council and Grampian Regional Council Artist-in-Residence, Northfield Academy, Aberdeen, One Year Australian Arts Residency in 1994, The Commonwealth Scholarship in 1995, The Scottish Arts Council Small Assistance Grant, 1999, Scotlands Year of The Artist, residency 2000.

Ben Taylor is a PhD Candidate at the Tasmanian College of the Arts.

Bridge2Bridge is the name of a prestigious, internationally renowned water skiing race held annually on the Hawkesbury River in Sydney, NSW. Commencing at the Hawkesbury River Bridge, the race tracks 112km inland to the finishing line at Windsor. The concept of the bridge is recognised as spanning the distance between one side of the river and the other. The paintings in Bridge2Bridge seek to shift and extend this idea to explore the interstitial space between two bridges. As a result, the river becomes a bridge between two bridges, or, a suspension across two spans. The paintings in Bridge2Bridge seek a similar form of suspension.

Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards.” Søren Kierkegaard The postcard – a dying vehicle of communication from friends or loved-ones, separated by distance and circumstance. These objects, often a keepsake for the recipient of an experience or memory, are a document of the past. Using imagery from black and white postcards, these works reinterpret the content of a finite symbol in an attempt to construct an alternate past. By creating this parallel, it enables a better understanding of the present, abandoning the fleeting message initially inscribed, to reveal a more immersive narrative.

Born in Sydney, Blair Waterfield was invited to study at the National Art School in a 2001 scholarship initiative. It was here that he realized his passion for the printmaking medium. In 2006, he moved to Tasmania to study at the University of Tasmania’s School of Art and has since established himself as one of Tasmania’s emerging artists. With appearances in an abundance of group and solo exhibitions, Blair was recently featured in the national printmaking journal, Imprint. In 2009, he was invited to exhibit in the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery showcasing a selection of emerging Tasmanian artists. He is currently completing his Masters at the Tasmanian School of Art.

In Objective rationale, Waterfield presents a range of objects that have been passed down through his family. He has represented them in a manner that renders them barely visible through a series of surfaces and color, or not visible at all except for the vacant space within the print that enables the viewer to connect with that object they may, or may not identify with. The objects for Waterfield become a connection to family members and their actual existence in an era when such objects would have been considered everyday, rather than held with emotional attachment as heirlooms are regarded today.

In 1999 Martin undertook a Diploma of Art, Craft and Design at TAFE in Hobart, where continued designing and making furniture. Later that year he won a prize in an exhibition at the Salamanca Long Gallery for a stool he had designed. During his second year at TAFE he began selling this design at Featherston interiors.

Pop art comes to mind when viewing Martin’s works. A mundane object of the everyday is presented with a mix of materials and metals we would usually overlook. The type is a garbled and indecipherable piece of information: it is a sign that cannot help us understand where we are going or have arrived at. We look for secret codes that may or may not be embedded and we are intent on understanding what it really means. Constructed of salvaged signs and typeface, these works presents a confusion of lettering which questions our conditioning to observe and react to signs in an instant.


After many years of browsing his mothers Vogue Living magazines, Breon Martin’s growing appreciation for retro furniture took shape when he moved into his own flat and decided to make his own furniture rather than spend large amounts on classic pieces. An adult education course in upholstery cemented this interest and his career as an artist began.

After he completed his diploma at TAFE, Martin began his Bachelor of Fine Arts at the Tasmanian School of Art, majoring in furniture design. One of his minor subjects was sculpture, which appealed to him as it is a supporting practise when working in the field of object design. During his studies began sculpturing bold block shaped type out of native Tasmanian timber off cuts he was able to source from the art school, recycling centres and building sites. The response from his supervisors was conducive to him investigating this further and to exhibit the works which he now sells.

Bronwen moved to Tasmania from Sydney 7 years ago and has studied visual arts in the UK, Italy and Sydney. She completed a Bachelor of Visual Arts at Sydney University in 1999. 

For the past 10 years I have concentrated my practice on landscape. I work directly from photographs; the time spent immersed in the location an integral part of my work. I am drawn to capturing a place during the elusive and emotive times of day; dawn or dusk. My recent work has begun to investigate night scapes and the built environment. I respond to places which resonate for me in a way that expresses the intangible, and reminds us that we are part of something larger, real and reassuring, whether this is a vast wilderness or a suburban vista.
