Sharon Peoples’ work is inspired by. walking around Lake Burley Griffin and focusses on birds, particularly black swans.

Prue Power’s paintings capture the play of light and shadow on lake waters and their surroundings as well as the anticipation of travelling between the two.

Rozalie Sherwood’s latest work is focused on the flow of water, sometimes controlled and contained; sometimes interrupted to become a flood or a trickle.

Steve Tomlin’s recent work employs symbols and motifs from his English seaside origins to explore the issue of displacement and dislocation, the feeling of being neither here nor there, that is a recurrent feature of the migrant experience.
