FEATHERING THE NEST #8 - NODDER'S SWAN
©2016 Jan Mullen
North Fremantle WA

Price: A$300

Statement: Exploration to new countries offered new sights and tastes. Our black swans were certainly a fascination. Exploration was the search for glory and goods - feathering the nests and coffers of adventurous countries. We also feather our nests but often our feathering is merely the re-invigoration of a room.

Price: A$350

The process of conveying an image to art work is one of the most important parts of creating a satisfying piece. The flow from the mind through the hand to fabric, conveying the essence of the image rather than botanical accuracy is the intention here

TELLINGS SECRETS II
©2016 Jill Rumble
Brookvale NSW

Price: A$150 SOLD

Statement: Inspired from a quote from Peter Mulvey "and the leaves were telling secrets to the wind" had me wondering if that was possible. The hand stitching is to indicate the way that the wind can swirl around - maybe telling secrets as it passes by.

THE DREAM
© 2016 Alison Withers
Warnambool VIC

Price: A$350

© 2016 Alison Withers
Warnambool VIC

Price: A$320

Statement:With a list of preferred locations and essential features in their artillery, first home buyers scour the internet, attend inspections and auctions, attempting to outbid and outsmart the competition. An all-encompassing, sometimes fruitless and tiresome task – all in the pursuit of security, community and stability: The Great Australian Dream.

TIN ROOF-RUSTED
© 2016 Rebecca Wolske
Boronia VIC

Price: A$425

Statement: Rust is such a beautiful thing, It comes in a rainbow of colours, eventually turning to a deep burgundy. It bubbles and cracks, disintegrates and blisters, looking like glittering jewels sprinkled across a Roof in full rusting glory, munching and devouring all metal within its path.

A BLOOMIN' ACCIDENT
©2016 Brenda Wood
Scarborough QLD

Price: A$390

Statement:The process of art can get messy. Sometimes a messy procedure allows for avenues of output that veer from the original plan. A bloomin' accident came to life within another project. Plant matter still adheres to the surface adding unexpected tactile elements. The accident now more interesting than the original.

Ode to Banksias by Susan Mathews
ODE TO BANKSIA #6
©2016 Susan Mathews
Ocean Grove, VIC

Price: A$450

Statement: This series expresses my absolute delight in and love of all types of banksias. These amazing plants supply me with an endless source of pattern and design. They are the latest in a large series of works around banksias. My palette has changed gradually over the four years since I moved to the coast an is, I believe, now expressing the happiness I feel every day in living here.
