CoWork Me is a progressive coworking space based in St Kilda providing a professional workplace for businesses and a space to expand networks, skillshare and collaborate. We resonate with their mission to foster innovation within startups and established businesses and have enjoyed helping them draw on art as a vehicle for enhancing creativity among workers. 

So what does that really mean? In a place like Cowork Me, we were given the creative freedom to curate a wide range of artists with diverse styles to provoke different perceptions and ideas among the audience who view each piece throughout the day.

The ‘Known’ works are the first pieces Marshall created in the wide format, and she found it challenging but enjoyable to work with different proportions.

Janice McCarthy

ColourSpace   Janice McCarthy   A Piece of Work   Cowork Me

A Piece of Work
Mixed Media on Canvas

Janice McCarthy is an artist who dabbles across multiple mediums, from paintings, sculptures, and prints. Stepping into her studio, it would be hard to pinpoint one style as her own. Perhaps that’s why she called this artwork ‘A Piece of Work’.

Fine art pigment print on 100% cotton rag paper

“To photographically capture this unique point of view of a black rose, I used a macro lens. The lens enables me to look at this subject in detail and compose the image to include the parts that are most beautiful to me, such as the texture of the petals.”

ColourSpace   Juzpop Creations   Cowork Me

Minky Official: If this artwork could talk, it would say: “You better not put this on Instagram!”
Dream On 1:
 This artwork is as much as a story as it is an artwork; the intention is to interrupt your daily routine and invite you into a temporary escape land.
Rebelle Fleur: It is a tribute to the star that fuses elegance with edginess: Rihanna.
Bubble Bath: Juzpop’s art is notorious for my paintings of empowered femininity.
Schoolboy Q: The paints Juzpop used for this piece she found on her trip to Japan in a little arts shop in Tokyo.

Kathy Best

ColourSpace   Kathy Best   Walk by the River, Walk in the Woods   Cowork Me

Walking by the River
Acrylic on canvas

Nature and the bush are close to Kathy Best’s heart. Walking along a riverbank, swimming in a freshwater river, camping beside a river and listening to the sounds of water and birds are all relaxing and enjoyable activities to her.

Walking in the Woods
Acrylic on canvas

If this artwork could talk, it’d say: “Get out of the house, get off the computer, put on your running shoes, pack a picnic lunch and head out of the city for a walk in the woods.”

Leigh Webster

ColourSpace   Leigh Webster   Reflections   Cowork Me

Oil and enamel on canvas

Leigh Webster’s work investigates beauty through depicting natural environments bereft of human involvement. It explores ways in which viewing a landscape can improve concentration and positively influence a state of well-being.

Mirabela Varga

An explosive celebration of joy infused with colour, texture and visceral fun. Life is a joy and every day is a gift.

Acrylic on canvas

“Your only work is to love yourself and embody this truth of self-worth and self-love so that you can be love in action. That is true service, to yourself and to those who surround you.”

Monika Feuerstein

ColourSpace   Monika Feuerstein   Openings   Cowork Me

Oil on linen

Monika Feuerstein loves painting with oils because of the intensity of hues and brilliance, creating depth through layers and layers of glazes. In a fast-paced world, Feuerstein loves this type of slow art; it’s archival and will last forever.

Myra Carter

ColourSpace   Myra Carter   Celtic Circles of Love   Cowork Me

Celtic Circles of Love
Acrylic on canvas

Celtic Artist George Bain described the circle as “man’s first step in art”. The Celts were not the only culture to use circles and spirals but they were, however, one of the first to take primitive symbols and transform them into purely decorative art instead of replicating things in the real world.
