PROFILED ARTIST: DANIEL R MARKS

Daniel R Marks is a cross-disciplinary artist originally from small-town Queensland, now currently finishing up a Bachelor of Fine Art at RMIT and emerging into the Melbourne art scene. He originally wanted to be an illustrator, and this interest in storytelling has since carried over into a more conceptually-based fine art practice which leans towards a somewhat theatrically inspired sense of abstract narrative. Marks works in both traditional and digital mediums as well as in live performance. Within both thematic and physical interactions between his pieces, and between art objects and performer, he explores the representation, reconfiguration and expansion of the human body at its most visceral via performative states of metamorphosis/rebirth.

 

 

 

Daniel R Marks' exhibition In Synthesis is current 26 September – 9 October 2018.

PROFILED ARTIST: RICHARD MCCOY

Just a synthesis of the mind, recalling archetypes, gods or figures of disgrace? Works that merge fiber art, digital art, and lurid retro patterns, Richard McCoy’s practice looks at the unreal nature of reality, time and extreme change. After showing his Master's artworks at London's Tate Britain, and conducting the world’s first academic study hybridising 3D printing to cloth - McCoy exhibits internationally, working across art, fashion, and textile design. Like some white-hot past, a draped overlapping of dream, fear and dark joy, his work aims to suggest a broken time, moving and unfinished.

 

 

 

Richard McCoy's exhibition, Synthetic, is current 29 June – 15 July 2018.

PROFILED ARTIST: ASHLEY McNEIL


Ashley McNeil paints from her own personal life experiences and is inspired by classical portraiture, vanitas and memento mori. Using oils, she strives to create paintings that evoke a sense of foreboding and intimidation in her audience and provide a new perspective to the modern day femme identifying form.

Originating from Canada and studying visual arts at the University of Victoria for three and a half years, McNeil ran away from home in search of a different way of life and living. Finding her niche within the inner northern suburbs of Melbourne, she has been inspired and challenged by the multitude of talented individuals who contribute to the vibrant Melbourne art and music scene.

McNeil’s new portrait series strives to shine a light on mental illness and her personal experience of panic, anxiety and depression, illustrating what the feelings would look like if they were to be brought to the surface and transformed into physical visceral objects. 

 

 

 

 Ashley McNeil's exhibition Life, Death and Panic Attacks, is current 9 – 22 May 2018.

PROFILED ARTIST: GRACE LOUISE BILES

Grace Louise Biles is an abstract resin artist residing in Melbourne, Victoria. Since studying a diploma of interior design and decoration at Swinburne University, Grace Louise has been highly influenced by colour psychology and the direct effects it has on people's emotions.

By combining the fluidity of resin, audacious colours of acrylic paints and inks, as well as intricate line-work, Grace Louise is able to construct a complex harmony of fabricated emotion. The addition of paint pen adds a dimension of control that can't be achieved with resin alone. In a sense, resin is free and not easily controlled and the patterns illustrated by the paint pen are an opposing force of conformity and control that both rival and complement the resin as a point of difference.

'Indirectly, it's an outlet for emotion. It lets me express myself beyond just what words can.' – Grace Louise Biles.

 

 

 

 Grace Louise Biles' exhibition Emotional Stasis, is current 20 April – 6 May 2018.
