Folio: Wendy Fairclough

Glass artist Wendy Fairclough is drawn to work that references objects and activities that are intimately familiar to people across culture and religion. With a focus on what we have in common regardless of external differences, her work extends to an interpretation of gestures and objects associated with meeting basic human needs, such as food warmth and shelter.

Folio: CHEBart

CHEBart is the creative partnership between artists Deb Jones and Christine Cholewa. While they both maintain separate exhibition practices, they work together on larger public art projects and some exhibition work. With the aim of making work that looks great, functions well and is thoughtful they don’t preference any one material or set approach when working on public commissions and instead let each opportunity shape their practice in new ways.

Folio: Vans the Omega

Graffiti and urban art were early influences and from a young age he was fascinated by the scale and visual impact of graffiti and street art along train lines. The work of Vans the Omega can be seen on streets around the world; with his signature style inspired by the natural world, crystals, sacred geometry, ancient scripts, architecture, engineering and the idea of movement or balance.

Folio: Julie Blyfield

Julie Blyfield’s practice spans 30 years, her jewellery and object work inspired by research into botanical specimens, personal and historical silver collections, and the rich diversity of the Australian landscape. She interprets her subject matter predominately in precious silver using the techniques of metal chasing and surface chiseling.
