Alan Meyburgh

Description

This fuels my use of up cycled materials as an avenue to create nature inspired sculptures that not only send a message but are aesthetically pleasing. I work in a diverse range of media, namely bronze, cement, timbre, steel and fibreglass. My artwork varies from small gallery size pieces to larger outdoor/indoor works. When creating sculptures, I place emphasis on form, structure, expression of movement and of course the meaning of each piece.

Christopher Young

  • Open Days/times:BY APPOINTMENT ONLY
  • Represented Artists:Christopher Young
  • Galleries:Installation,Photography

Details

  • Open Days:By Appointment Only

Description

Christopher Young was born in small-town New Zealand in the mid-seventies. After finishing his studies, he moved to Germany in 1996 before settling in Western Australia in 2002.

Isolation is a recurring theme in his life and work – the remoteness of growing up in semi-rural New Zealand, the loneliness of living in Germany as a poor German speaker and lately the geographic and ideological seclusion of life in Australia, have all coloured his artistic practice.

Context, coding in images and a lack of a personal cultural library have been central themes explored in his work.

David Galloway

In the past Open Studios exhibitions, my work focused on creating narrative rich, household furniture and objects made from up-cycled materials. In 2018, I am stepping from looking at the things that surround people and make their lives rich and livable, to looking at how to enrich people’s identity in the context of their community and culture. This shift is accompanied by a considerable increase in the size of the works.

  • Open Days:By Appointment Only

Description

Working with the concept of “different minds”, I’m developing interactive sculptural installations and collaborations across the 4ha of the Ferart Studio property.

My art practice seeks to create narrative rich pieces that investigate the integration of scientific, rational and economic activity; with the ecological, communal, intuitive and sensual aspects of human culture. It places a strong emphasis on inviting people to live more rich and interesting lives.

During Open Studios there will be collaborative activities and events for all ages, see the Ferart Studio website and Facebook page for details.

Elisa Markes-Young

  • Galleries:Textiles,Mixed Media,Installation
  • Open Days/times:BY APPOINTMENT ONLY

Details

  • Open Days:By Appointment Only

Description

With her cross-cultural biography, she feels caught between worlds and questions how Polish or German she really is. What and where is home? Not a dot on a map defined by lines and numbers, but a psychological state, something that James Baldwin called an ‘irrevocable condition’.

Elisa relates to Croatian writer Dubravka Ugresic who thinks that memories are where we might live after we’ve lost the real thing. Memories are the closest she has to a home.

Ian Mutch

Using a combination of aerosol, acrylics and inks, I merge energetic layers featuring fragments of landscapes, nature and character illustrations. My artwork can be viewed on two levels – enjoyed from a distance and in detail close-up.

  • Galleries:Drawing,Installation,Painting,Mixed Media,Print Making,Artist Studio
  • Open Days/times:BY APPOINTMENT ONLY

Details

  • Open Days:By Appointment Only

Description

I explore concepts of memory, story, place and the seasons, and I seek to create artworks that absorb and entertain the viewer through whimsical narrative, movement and design aesthetics.

Creating artwork on a variety of scales – I paint both in the streets and in the studio. I am influenced by my immediate surrounds living in the South West, my kids, travel, music, media, publishing, snow, surf, patterns and print making, world cultures and travel.

Jonathon Thwaites

Jonathon explores the inner Universe outwardly, using found materials to mimic patterns of natural environments. He externalises the internal, bringing the soul (as pattern) as it is manifest in the material world, to focus to elucidate the inner soulfulness of our material world.

A more recent project, titled “Ngala Wongga” (‘come talk’) examines the cultural significance of languages in the Goldfields, the interconnectedness of people with the land and the culture and identity expressed with languages that today are considered endangered. Her latest book, Beyond, goes further afield to explore the Goldfields-Esperance, Gascoyne, Mid West and Kimberley regions from the air.
