Femme Fructueses: Fruitful Woman

Laneikka Denne

Femme Fructueuses: Fruitful Woman is a photo series that distorts the female form in grotesque yet beautiful ways. The work invites viewers to question the subject and in turn their own immediate sexualisation of womanhood and femininity.

Miniature Worlds

George Washingmachine

Miniature Worlds is the objecthood of George Washingmachine's imagination in our neighbourhood. The personal nature of each work in the form of an assemblage of things brings with it a strong emotional quality. Each piece has a story.


My Carnival in the Streets of Redfern

Eleonora Pasti

Bringing an atmosphere of enchantment of Carnival of Venice, Eleonora Pasti creates her own float from found materials for all to marvel and celebrate on the local community streets of inner city Sydney.


Not Terra Nullius

Jane Burton Taylor

Not Terra Nullius reimagines an early colonial land grant map. It erases the names of recipients of grants and English place names, replacing them with the names given to the region’s islands, bays and sandy coves by the indigenous peoples who are its traditional custodians; and who were its sole occupants prior to 1770.

This land grant map dating from the early 1800s specifically records the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney. By reworking it to remove colonial settler names, and reinstate indigenous place names in the landscape, I am respectfully acknowledging and honouring the original custodians. Most of the indigenous words on this reworked map were recorded by early colonists like Lt Dawes, after conversations with local First Nations people living on the harbour, including Patyegarang, a young Cammeraygal woman who spoke the Gadigal language.

'Thank you to Professor Jakelin Troy who generously consulted with me and Dr Val Attenbrow, the contemporary source for the historic indigenous place names via her book Sydney’s Aboriginal Past. Not Terra Nullius is made in whole-hearted support of the Yes vote', Jane Burton Taylor.


Anthology, Self Q - Rated

Dirk Kruithof

'In these clamouring colourful paintings the 'essential or important' bits are mixed in with noisy peripheral interruptions, and artist and viewer are free to decide which is which.' Dirk Kruithof


Ballhaus Grünau: When the Music is Over

Hike Weijers

Alive, which records my experiences of volunteering with people of an
asylum seeker or refugee background in the Villawood Detention
Centre and in studios around Western Sydney and the Inner West
over the last ten years.


Faces of Australia

Linda Starkey

Australia's wild and beautiful country has always been an inspiration for Linda Starkey and in this vast expanse she finds portraits of natural objects.


Global Warming

Brian Pinkstone

Juxtaposing the beauty of watercolours with a serious message about political,
economic and ecological questions.



Sandy Edwards

A dictionary definition of Indelible is ‘not able to be forgotten’. One
primary value of photography is its relationship to memory.


Luminous Landscapes

Renae Morris

Luminous Landscapes evokes a moment for reflection. Renae's compositions are framed in order to direct your view around the canvas to emphasise particular elements in nature, such as the flickering light off water or the changing colours in the sky.

Reflections, geometry and divergences feature in each work, highlighting a paradox in nature: growth favouring the efficiency of patterns but with potentially infinite natural variations - embodying the clash between order and chaos.


Monoprint Portraits: Abstract and Figurative

James Whitington

These works are different examples of Monoprint. They are abstract portraits, initially inspired by the shapes and character of
chairs and created by using an etching press at low pressure.


Nature's Beauties

Wednesday's Watercolours

Wednesday’s Watercolourists is a group of artists who meet every
Wednesday and have done so for the last 6 or more years to explore and
participate in their passion for watercolour painting, learning from and
enjoying each other’s talents and company.


O, let me kiss that hand

Angela Stretch

The title of the photo-media exhibition originates from a quote from Shakespeare’s play King Lear, which is known to have been written when he was in quarantine during the London Bubonic Plague of the 17th century.
