Kirsten Fredericks

As a working crochet artist I always find myself looking for new ways to knot a stitch or create a dream yarn combination so I can display the end result as a soft sculptural work. I’m often overcome by a feeling of excitement when forced to push boundaries and change perspective on how my work can contribute to the artistic community at large. This collection takes sentimental examples of humour and genitalia then offers them unapologetically to the public.

The hope is that my work will titillate the audiences’ perspective of ‘our private parts’ by moving past tactile shapes and forms to something that is humorous and somewhat nostalgic.

India Scard

Scard explores the themes of mortality and peoples relationships with space and time, in particular the ephemeral nature of humans. The figures she depicts are contrasted against voids, concealing and revealing aspects of the image. She attempts to capture a moment in time, highlighting the void that represents time before, and ultimately after, humankind. The works hope to capture a moment that is fleeting, as we humans are mortal beings, we embody ephemerality. This is just merely a moment in time. All we are, are objects in space.

Monika Scarraboletti

My work is primarily focused around the sensuality of the human form. Clay plays a pivotal role in my art practice. The tactile experience of working with clay is seductive to me, it is soft and tangible and immediate. I am constantly pushing and pulling the material to reveal the forms of the human body. I have always been drawn to emotional narratives in art, many of my figures have characters and stories which emerge as I work the clay. For me the development of a sculpture is an intimate experience, and this, I believe is reflected in my work.
