Silvio APPONYIPelican 2011

 I am constantly surprised by the variety of bird-life I see in the Adelaide Hills, even black swans and pelicans.

Laurie BLAKEWATER, Wilbur (and his winning ways) 2013

 

We and Wilbur are here and not here, evanescent, changing, finally disappearing. We come and go like mystery, like magic, but are only here at all, surviving as a species, because Wilbur keeps giving. Keep giving Wilbur, you're our only hope.

16mm ply coated with coloured Megapoxy, glass, paint and water - 150h x 65w x 60d cm $980

Water-soluble oil on salvaged eucalyptus logs with ply panel - 160h x 120w x 48d cm $4950

Margit BRÜNNER,  Sonic Trees 2014

 

My works explore states of joy by way of artistic experiment. A 'joy' is when the body starts doing things to my own surprise and thoughts disappear. In all of my works, I am interested in this particular presence - an intimate, expansive experience of being immersed in place.

Installations/drawings - $600

Jan CLIFFORD, Agglomeration 2013

 

Rock agglomerates form into shapes which are at once coherent and chaotic, as does everything in nature. These weavings use a native parasitic vine to reflect the apparently random yet meaningful motifs we constantly discover in both the animate and the inanimate environment.

Cassytha pubescens - 250h x 90w x 100d cm $1,800

Rick CLISE, It became personal - Catharsis 2014

 

Despite thorough preparations and the best precautions, bad things happen. We must not immediately blame terrorists as sometimes it's just fate. 2013 was my bad year. Move on, be strong, beacuse there's a lot of life to live.

Welded and painted steel, muslin, expanding foam - 210h x 140w x 40d cm $12,500

Sandra CROSS, Dissolution 2014

 

My work explores permeability and openness, using installations to investigate being and the role of boundaries in shaping thought. In earlier works I have formed carpets of mirror pieces, reflecting the sky. Here the carpet is vertical, concentrating on the intersection between the patterns, the reflections, and the space between.

Acrylic mirror, cable - 300h x 200w cm $10,000
