David Strickland

Hailing from the small community of King Island, growing up David could often find little else to do other than to draw, sleep, day dream and imagine other places. Now based in Melbourne, his life hasn’t really changed. David still spends most of his time inside his own head and what little time is left he spends drawing, painting and trying to create. Imagination, trying to inspire and share it with others is the main drive behind David’s art because people often lose it over time and life without imagination would just be boring.

Kelly Zarb

Kelly Zarb is a self taught artist living in Carrum, Victoria. She has always enjoyed many creative pursuits but leaned ever so lovingly towards painting. Kelly enjoys the space, ritual and connection felt while painting and how this way of expressing can be reflected and appreciated in all facets of her life.

Participating in “Works on Paper,” gives me an opportunity to share the simplicity of space, my love for geometrical shapes and fun joyful colours. My artwork has a central theme around the stars, sky and the universe.

Kirsty Joy

Kirsty Joy is an abstract artist based in Melbourne, using alcohol inks as her medium of choice. She draws her inspirations from the beauty of nature and the complexity it holds. With a free flowing unstructured approch to her work, the same is true with her approch to life. She tends to swing between muted tones and bright pops of colour, with heavy use of negative space to draw the eye.

Murray Flitcroft    

I am a horticulturist, geologist, Kahuna massage therapist and life-long learner who rarely travels far without my Canon EOS camera or Oppo phone. My love of photography began with my Gran, who gave me her old Kodak Box Brownie when I was 9.

I love exploring the details and interplay between plants, pebbles, roots, rocks and the planet from which they all evolved. The persistence, tenacity, yet simple beauty of life in all its forms mesmerises me. I’m captivated by simple subjects and their interplay with light, capturing moments along life’s path. The colours and contrasts, textures and tones of life are magical. I hope my work invites you to take time in nature. Sometimes it’s great to just sit and think, and sometimes to just sit.

Olga Tsara

Olga Tsara is a Melbourne artist, working in oil, phototransfer and collage. She uses classical painting techniques, and draws from historical and contemporary photographs for inspiration and reference. Always on the lookout for the comic, the ironic and the absurdist, her work dwells on feminism, misogyny, anonymity and memory. Her highly charged colour palette is influenced by Popism and Pop Art, taking the viewer away from the mundane and the expected. Recent work uses references from 19th century photography to explore death and the persistence (or fragility) of identity. Olga is a practising artist, published essayist and has worked as a curator and picture librarian at the State Library of Victoria since 1994.

Paige Kalipciyan

Paige is a thirteen year old student currently attending year eight. From an early age she has been drawn to art and the creative, imaginative side of life. She experiments with different themes and perspectives of life and society. Other than art, some of her favorite pastimes include listening to music, writing short stories, reading manga and cooking.

The theme of ‘works on paper’ resonated well with me because paper is one of the primary resources I use when making art. It also allows for a lot of creative freedom to express what I want to convey through my art.

RTF Art

Ruddy Travaglini is a painter from Martinique, he is inspired by the colourful and warm environment of the Caribbean.
His work is based on the research of Caribbean’s origins and how Caribbean people have bought them own identity with fragments of different cultures throughout history. He use pasting graphics to explore ideas related to his mixed african-amerindian-french-italian cultural heritage combining mixed mediums, materials, textures and colours. Ruddy cuts plastic, paper and cardboard with deferent thickness to get deferent parts of his characters. As a 3D puzzle, all this pieces that he compares to fragments of our DNA are put together.
He works by day and by night with a phosphorescent paint to hide ephemeral secrets and messages, connecting past and present, building bridges between the ancestors and the present human being.
Ruddy’s work fuses apparent contradictions, synchronising the decadent and the minimal, the spectacular and the invisible, seeking to heighten the experience of the spectator by creating immersive environments that transport the viewer into other worlds.

She’s used to using sound to create shading, colour, depth perception etc… but she now also has taken up other art forms. nature and space are also a great love, hence space being the theme for this piece. My work is called ‘Through Hubble’s Lense’.

From a child I’ve loved working with paper in various formats. I’m currently working with foam clay so looked forward to working with paper again for this exhibition.

Shannon is lifelong lover of all things art and craft. She loves to dabble in all mediums and play with all materials. Her subject matter bounces around also, mainly tending towards nature and pop culture, her other life long loves.

The thought of looking at a blank, empty piece of paper used to fill me fear but now it fills me with excitement on what my mind is going to conjure up-something simple perhaps or something more epic?
