Folio: Callum Docherty

Docherty enjoys transforming traditional works on paper into conceptual and composition-based collages, the notion of reinvention is a common thread which runs throughout all aspects of his creative arts practice.

Folio: Jasmine Crisp

Jasmine’s characteristic painting practice is inclusive of traditional painting, installation and mural painting. Her work is driven by an interest in relationships between people, their belongings and home environments with focus on ideas concerning how objects and places are treasured, valued, possessed, or used as forms of self-adornment and identification.

Folio: Mark Valenzuela

Mark Valenzuela’s interdisciplinary practice explores forms of conflict, dominance and resistance. These explorations draw on Valenzuela’s experiences growing up in army base camps in Mindanao, Philippines, and respond to the current socio-political contexts of the spaces he inhabits.

Folio: Jane Skeer

Jane Skeer predominately works in sculpture and installation, creating works in response to her observations of people, objects and materiality. Skeer re-presents familiar ready-made objects imbued with their associated sensory/haptic memories, highlighting the vitality she sees in them. A physical process of assembling material en-masse allows her the time and space to inhabit, contemplate and work collaboratively with the material.
