All pieces have a goal of initiating an emotional response, which people can relate to their own experiences.
“I draw a lot of inspiration from music – I always listen to music when painting. Music can resurface a lot of memories, and if I am drawn to a specific lyric or tune, I’m transported to a particular time or place. I’ll listen to a song on repeat whilst painting a piece to focus on that specific memory, be it, good or bad.”
"My artwork is inspired by nature and i like to focus on bringing the outside in. My paintings are highly decorative, however I feel they also serve as a reflection of the beauty and complexity that nature provides. I like to capture the essence of a landscape, stylizing it and making it my own. I employ colour, pattern and repetition to portray the layers of foliage and vegetation that can be seen within the landscape.
My colour palate is governed by my mood and the general feeling I want to create within each painting. I generally work with analogous colours combinations because I feel they best reflect the natural harmony of nature, the subtle warm or cool changes of the seasons and foliage provide endless inspiration. However, I am not afraid of colour and I often experiment with combinations that are not usually traditionally associated with nature and landscapes.
I work spontaneously and rarely begin with a set plan in mind. I let each painting evolve intuitively as I build each layer of paint. I work quickly to begin with, which is why I prefer to work with faster drying acrylic paints. Each piece is then finished off with a layer of gloss varnish to enhance the colours and depth and also protect the surface of the painting. Painting for me is second nature, i have been doing it in one way or another since my early teen years and feels as natural as breathing.
My paintings are both a direct reflection of my surroundings and an imaginary world – a secret garden that exists in my mind. A whimsical place that I can go to escape and be lost within. I create a world that i want to be in and that provides an escape from the everyday."
David is a self-taught Sydney based artist with a passion for landscapes and man made structures. His use of aerosol produces a unique and stylish abstract effect. His technique, merged with harsh layering of aerosols assists in achieving this aspect.
Often displaying a domineering use of black, David is able to use his instincts to produce works that captivate the eye and embark the viewer on an intense and memorable journey. David also proves his diversity with a combination of affluent primary colours from deep ocean blues, eucalyptus greens to burnt orange and a foray of shimmering metallics. Altogether creating a texture and tone that contributes to the beauty of the quest.
"I focus on embracing the emotional claim that the colours inspire through your own journey"
David's art is described as 'passionate and intense' to the eye that endeavours quality.
Emily Besser is a painter, living in the inner-west of Sydney and working from a home studio. She completed a Bachelor of Visual Arts with First Class Honours in Painting at Sydney College of the Arts in 2001, and has intermittently exhibited her work since then. After a 10 year adventure as a lawyer, Emily has returned to a daily practice of painting.
Emily’s abstract and gestural works are in conversation with a diverse range of ideas, sometimes relating to religiosity, spirituality and belief, or psychology and anthropology, or the sedentary arts of gardening, child-rearing and home-making. But mostly the conversation returns to the practice of Painting itself.

Abstract alcohol ink artist, Lisa Ryan has always been passionate about
colour. From a young age, she’d return from weekend trips with her dad to the
local hardware store with pockets stuffed full of paint swatches to add
to her collection. She’d painstakingly review and choose which blue went
best with this yellow or that peach; which green complimented that weird browny-orange she loved.
That appreciation and understanding for how things click and work together evolved into a need to work with colour to create her own art pieces. she started to do just that in her Sydney based home studio.

natural beauty of her adopted country Australia, and South Africa
where she grew up.
Maggi's style of painting is abstract expressionist with a strong gestural
feel. Her artworks are intuitive and very much a reflection of her
emotions, perceptions of the world and her place in it.
Paul Blackmore is a Sydney based photographer.
His most recent book At Water’s Edge is the long-awaited publication that explores the intimate relationship between humanity and its most vital natural resource.
At Water’s Edge builds on Paul’s previous studies of humanity’s relationship to nature in a globalised world. His first book Australians: Responses to the Land looked at the how the tough Australian environment animates and influences Australian culture. In the book’s introduction, acclaimed Australian writer David Malouf writes: “In Paul Blackmore’s world these people are allowed the dignity of their ordinariness; he seeks out what is touching in them. This collection is full of such moments of affection and uncondescending regard for the lives of others. For all its grimness, the world he presents is aglow with life, and little incidental beauties, and an abiding mystery.” In At Water’s Edge Blackmore has again sought the truth in the lives of others; revealing the beauty of the intimate and often vulnerable relationship individuals have with water, whilst simultaneously exploring the global situation of water scarcity.
Blackmore’s many photo essays and stories, published in such international media as Time, L’Express, Le Monde and Geo, have established him as a much sought-after collectable photographer. He has gained prominence through his exhibitions at Camera One New York, Stills Gallery Sydney, Perpignan France and the Centre for Contemporary Photography, Melbourne. In 2010 a series of photos from At Water’s Edge were exhibited at the esteemed Biennale D’Limage France and in 2012, at the Leonardo Museum Salt Lake City. Blackmore is one of a new generation of photojournalists – reporters of reality –whose elegant, coherent and enduring observations function as both valuable records of social change and stunning fine-art images.
Peytil is a Stockholm based art project founded in 2016 by the fashion designer and artist Eitil Thorén Due. The work reflects a graffiti-like spontaneity with focus on fashion illustrations and contemporary portraits. The Scandinavian style is clear in the paintings that are often built simply from minimalistic black lines. The work is a combination of traditional painting and digital tools, which gives it contrast and a novel expression. Eitil grew up in a family of artists, his mother is a sculptor and his father a painter. Art and creativity were everywhere in the house and Eitil was encouraged to experiment and follow his own path at an early age. When he was 21 he started a fashion brand called Mouli together with his older brother. After working several years as a fashion designer Eitil wanted to create another outlet for his creativity. He began to see commercial fashion as something very restricted and was longing for something without rules or limitations. The result was Peytil, which was also the nickname his mother used for him as a boy.

Sarah Kalidis is an Australian artist & textile designer who resides in Sydney. Studying Interior Design, she worked with tactile finishes over 10 years which unearthed an affection for natural organic textures and forms.
Her inspiration lays within the natural landscape, in particular the striking botanicals of native Australian Flora.
Her style is bold and alluring, marrying the artistry of illustration with a playful contemporary edge. Dubbed ‘Colour
Queen’ at school, Sarah’s trademark is her striking use of colour and texture that is a delight for the senses.
‘’I love to draw on the natural environment in my textiles. And I have always taken a likening to expressionist and modernist movements; I feel that this exploration of form has certainly played a part in how my pieces are composed’’
Each one of Sarah’s textile designs are based on her original drawings. “I love watching the transition from pencil to paper, through to upholstery fabric for furniture”. Composition plays a very important part in the production process, and once a textile design has been established, form and colour is almost a natural progression.
Sarah loves to put brush to paper; and experiments with acrylic, gouache and watercolour mediums. It’s all about how the visual translates from her mind to canvas or paper, and she describes the process as almost rhythmic; an extension of thoughts and feelings.
