Project Description

Beach Ball
by David Barbour.

As I pick up each piece of driftwood I can only imagine that it has spent most of its life floating around in the ocean. Kind of like a beach ball drifting off with the breeze.

The Guardians of Earth
by Corinne Berset.

Escap-aids #1
by Penelope Elliott.
W25cm x L15cm x H35cm
Australind

Numbats are prey to larger, often introduced beasts. I ask, what can be done to prevent habitat loss and protection from feral cats and foxes? I first devised a series of guardians of these precious animals. My imagination has taken me further to create “Escap-aids”, presenting a little humour into this vexed subject. I hope to stir my audience into greater awareness and involvement in animal conservation and protection.

Adrift
by Linda Guinness.

I enjoy creating sculptural forms that reflect personal experiences and views of the world, be that whimsical or with a deeper meaning. Understanding our fears and facing adversity is a challenging but necessary part of our growth. We must remain loyal to our beliefs and trust in our destiny.

by David Johansen.
W10cm x L40cm x H60cm

Songs are written about this woman – perhaps she is the girl from Ipanema. She wears the ring to show the world she belongs with someone else, aware of the adoring gazes of others but unaffected by them… she sails on.

Is it Contained
by Sue Smorthwaite.
W30cm x L30cm x H30cm

Using handmade wool felt and found objects, my work asks the question: Despite efforts to contain the virus, can it really be contained, or do we just have to accept that it will become another seasonal pathogen and that we must adjust our lives and learn to live with it?

Weaving Country Whole
by Lyn Ward.
