Quarantine - Nicole Tijoux
Artist Nicole Tijoux has created a new body of work during the lockdown. She has written about the experience of working in her studio in this unusual times:
Isolation and silence are the words coming up in my mind when I think about and look at the new paintings that I have been working in this quarantine. The deformation of the swimmer is now placed in a different water, more colorful, with other kind of light. This new environment come from dreams that I had, possible places with another climate (not the one that we know) and with another light.

On the Beach - Rikki Kasso
'On to the Beach' is a new exhibition of works by Byron Bay based American artist Rikki Kasso whose work is characterised by his fluid use of the traditional Japanese technique of Sumi ink. Using this ancient Japanese medium seems perfectly suited to depicting the relaxing atmosphere of beach scenes from this beautiful part of Australia.

This Was Then, This is Now
Gavin's work is often associated with Pop Art, in particular his iconic Geisha Girl artworks which juxtapose Eastern and Western cultures. His unique take on pop art involves photographing vintage Japanese postcards from the early 20th Century which he then enlarges digitally. In the resulting images, the faded hand-painted watercolours from that Japanese visual culture, are made bolder and brighter by merging them with modern-day Western elements.

OCEANS by Nicole Tijoux
OCEANS by Nicole Tijoux is a new exhibition featuring the artist's ongoing investigation of the visual transformations that occur when the human figure interacts with water.
“I like to explore ideas such as how the clash of a body and a stream of water creates an optical problem. The way the shape vanishes in the vapor of the water, and the ghostly appearance of the body that can be captured in the photograph or painting."
