Sleeping | POA
Mixed media, 70x90cm
Artist | Rebecca Cool’s paintings feature a combination of acrylic and fabric collage.The strong colourful works have a naive charm reminiscent of European folk art, and possess an aesthetic complexity while maintaining a childish impulsiveness. Rebecca is interested in representing the vibrant and colourful, from animals and gardens, to angels and mermaids. The WA artist and illustrator lives on a rural property with her partner and their menagerie of animals, many of whom make appearances in her work.

Fishing the Edge | POA
Acrylic on canvas, 2200x110mm
Artist | Inspired by the vivid Australian landscape and artists of the romantic movement, Paul Lucas has devoted himself to nurturing his talent for rich and dramatic depictions of local landmarks.

The Turning Point | POA
Oil on Belgian linen, 1200x1500mm
Artist | Lori Pensini is an awarded artist and semi-finalist in the 2014 Doug Moran National Portrait Prize. The major part of her creative career has focused on mixed-media paintings and drawings.
Artwork | The Turning Point is the first in a series of paintings exploring Pensini’s Aboriginal heritage. It is a self-portrait of self-discovery, where the road is little more than a wheel rut, long forgotten yet colourfully compelling.
