Jana is a visual artist working across a wide range of media, including paintings, drawing, printmaking, sculpture and installation. The work explores the concept of time perception, memory and inter-connectivity.
Beth’s work is rooted in an exploration of the poetic nature of materials. Photography, digital manipulation, printmaking and paper collage feed into her visual research alongside the traditional hand tool methods she utilises at the bench when making jewellery.
Central to Karlyn’s work is a longstanding interest in the bond between people and place. Her practice explores this dialogue through glass and architecture, with a particular focus on how characteristics and qualities of space are capable of shaping our experience, memories and sense of attachment to our surroundings.
