PROFILED ARTIST: PETRINA GRIFFIN

Petrina Griffin is an artist from Melbourne and has been illustrating and painting for as long as she can remember. Working as an illustrator and designer for many years after studying Visual Design at Monash, she has only recently begun to exhibit her work. Currently she is motivated by the world around her and paints anything she sees. Experimenting with real life, abstraction and colour she is always ready and hoping to be surprised by life’s little stand out moments.

 

 

 

Petrina Griffin's exhibition How did we get here? in collaboration with Susan Earl, is current 12 – 28 October 2018.

PROFILED ARTIST: EMMA ITZSTEIN

Emma Itzstein is a self-represented multi-disciplinary artist based in Geelong. After being recognised for her ‘unique-state' printmaking in her hometown of Perth, she decided to explore painting as a relatively new practice since relocating to the east-coast, as a way of loosening up and giving in to the medium.

Itzstein's work explores conceptual theories which mostly revolve around psychological states of mind. Juxtaposed layers of paint and other mediums are used in interplay to bring deeper meaning to her works - a consistent thread between her printmaking and painting practice. Itzstein's debut solo show YIN at Brunswick Street Gallery explores the process of navigating and healing generalised anxiety - a manifestation of the artist’s personal introspection over the past year. 

 

 

 

Emma Itzstein's exhibition, YIN, is current 22 August – 4 September 2018.
