Showcasing the talent of our artist membership from Brisbane and regional Queensland, this exhibition takes the form of small scale three dimensional works displayed on plinths in the foyer space and corridors of level 2 at the Judith Wright Centre.
The Winter Exhibition features works from artist members Peta Lloyd, Nicola Hooper, Gemma Garcia-Roman and Ann Russell.
Peta Lloyd (Coowonga, near Rockhampton)
Peta Lloyd describes herself as a bricoleur… transforming everyday ordinary stories through the skillful marriage of collected materials, folded pages and prints. She is a visual storyteller, creating quirky, elegant and optimistic narratives, often housing these unique stories within a vessel. Peta uses layered symbols and motifs to create multiple meanings. read more
Nicola Hooper (Logan)
Nicola’s work explores concepts surrounding human/animal relationships via “zoonoses”. She does this both visually and verbally through fairy tale and rhyme contexts using drawing and lithography. Her exhibited books are all mosquito repellent. The encaustic covers are combined with Citronella oil. The lithographic books are printed with combined ink and citronella oil. read more
Gemma Garcia-Roman (Brisbane)
Gemma Garcia-Roman has an interest in integrating the Spanish culture (her heritage) to her current home Australia. Her work is colourful, and she tries to combine some archetype ideas from distinct cultures; from Spain (Spanish dresses patterns like red with white polka dots), bulls, and Australian animals (koalas, kangaroos, etc). Her artworks are influenced by famous Spanish and Latin artists, Picasso and Frida Kahlo. read more
Ann Russell (Cashmere)
Ann Russell works with liminal spaces caught just outside ‘real’ existence, seen and simultaneously unseen. Her works are depictions of these spaces, often based on Surreal narratives using mixed media in a bricolage form – combining elements and symbols that retain some of their meaning from our world, juxtaposed with new meaning in the worlds she creates. read more
