Damian Seagar

Much of the Central Hawkes Bay on the Eastern North Island of New Zealand has been completely cleared for farming, but some stubborn trees remain. The cabbage tree is incredibly hardy and fast growing, but is easily susceptible to farm animal damage and fungal die-off. Seagar wanted to present the tree as a majestic and lonely figure proudly and stubbornly watching over its home.

Efrossini Chaniotis

This painting depicts twin souls giving each other the blessing to be in their own power. Chaniotis’ Constellation Landscapes evolved into paintings such as this one, characterised by bright colours, floral, arabesque and geometric patterns filling the space around the figures. Chaniotis applies a technique in her painting that is not dissimilar to collaging. Patterns in fabric and paper provide new marks that, coupled with her own designs, get matched uncannily in fragments of collage.

Kat Marcius

For a long time Marcius used to create paintings in one session. Now she likes to create layers that give her artworks more meaning, and give two sides to each story of the artwork. In this painting she painted the ocean with deep open waters. In the second layer she added the box-like shape and the pot plant. To Marcius, it explains a lot about what she loves and how she feels, not being able to live close to the ocean at the time.

Mat Vaughan

When we think about our footprints, we usually think about the marks we leave, either physically or symbolically, on the places we visit. We don’t usually think about what we can collect with our footprint, and we definitely don’t imagine that anything we might collect could be valuable.

Paola Ditel

Rabbit was created at a time of experimentation with fun, new approaches. It was through this experimentation that the rabbit appeared on canvas. Paola Ditel was drawn to painting animals and have won awards for acrylic with animals as a subject. This piece was a fun exercise in using different mixed media, to create a rabbit with a textural feel.

Paul Sur

Paul Sur is an urban photographer. Inspired by the photos of Sebastio Salgado for their ability to narrate stories and Martin Parr’s works for their irony, Paul sees photography as a way to harmonise both the technical and creative sides of his mind. He loves being able to use his photography to paint everyday occurrences in a different light.One of his favourite techniques is called “fishing”. He picks a particular scene, sets the composition, and waits for the right person to enter the scene before taking a shot. Sometimes he can be in the same spot for nearly an hour!

Tiffany Blaise

In this artwork opaque oil paint and cold wax are blended, moved and sculpted onto the surface with an impasto technique to capture my own consciousness as well as the mood of a scene. This notion of creating poetic landscapes is inspired by Cezanne’s works and his idea “A work of art which did not begin in emotion is not art.”
