Erica Seccombe @ ANU School of Art Gallery

8-16 October 2016

This exhibition was part of the Graduate Exhibition series the ANU School of Art stages in their gallery each year. Erica Seccombe’s was a remarkable set of video creations in which in a dark room took the viewer into the beautiful world of microscopic living forms that transformed in front of your eyes combined with materials taken from the slow growing treescape of the Canberra Arboretum. Some of the images were so engrossing in their slow and beautiful movement it was hard to look away.

There are a couple of still shots below taken at the show. I hope I see more of her work.

EASS Margaret Munro Prize @ ANU School of Art Gallery

8 – 15 October 2016

Mahala Hill, Cat Mueller, Sian Watson

Mahala Hill,creates gorgeous objects made from bone china and coloured porcelain. To me they look as if they are inspired by coastline life forms but in the gallery sheet it is exploring lots of other issues

Cat Mueller creates big colourful works in aerosol paint and oil paint. they are abstract and have a combination of hard and soft colouring.

Sian Watson has created objects made from materials such as plaster, steel, chicken wire, dry clay and liquid nails among others. Her works fuse the forms of human, birds and other animals.

There are some pics below and a link.
