The artists

Peter Lambropoulos

Peter Lambropoulos

Won the inaugural M Collection Award for an unrepresented Australian artist in 2014.

His practice-based visual research is predominantly realised photographically with spin-offs into video, installation and events. Often working collaboratively across multiple disciplines, he has created works with writers, curators and visual artists that range from object based to interactive to the immersive.

Léna Sheridan

Léna Sheridan

is a German-Australian artist, teacher, and musician. Léna has synaesthesia, a neurological trait resulting in a merging of senses that aren’t normally connected. Experiencing images in sounds and vibrations, her creative process often involves listening closely to the work as the right compositional balance is achieved. Léna’s resulting work has a sense of stillness, introspection, and mystery.

Kirpy

Kirpy

has been cutting stencils and painting on and off the streets for over 12 years. After completing a Bachelor of Fine Art at Monash University he spent time living in Berlin, evolving and developing his painting practice. Kirpy is incessantly looking at new ways of visually entertaining with the use of stencil art. Layer after layer, his work assembles like building blocks with iconic landmarks of cities from around the globe. The end result is striking in its realistic tone.

Sean McDowell

Sean McDowell

is a multidisciplinary artist who encompasses a broad range of mediums including sculpture and spatial practice, installation and painting. Sean’s work has been influenced by movements and professions including abstraction, formalism, architecture and design. For Sean, artworks often emerge throughout the process of experimentation.

MO

MO

is a Melbourne based artist who works in the medium of collage, building her images through painstaking layering of pieces of vinyl. Her latest work The Visitors explores themes of mortality and our fears of, or desires for the afterlife.

Sharon Monagle

Sharon Monagle

is a doctor and selftaught artist working in acrylic, oils and mixed media. As a doctor Sharon sees people at their most vulnerable. Through art, she tries to understand the human experience. In 2018 she is working on new styles and themes based around people’s connectedness and separateness.

 

There will be a pop-up shop from SisterWorks, a social enterprise empowering marginalised asylum seeker or refugee women to use their skills in creative ways, producing sustainable products from recycled materials, including baskets, bags and jewellery.

This will be a selling exhibition. All artworks displayed are being offered for sale by the artist. The entire purchase price goes to the artist. It would be great if you could join us in supporting the artists that will be exhibiting with us.
