- Daniel Argyle
- Daniel Argyle’s work proceeds from a free-form perspective on abstraction rather than any direct narrative about social or political space. However, this is not to say these concerns don’t exist as sub-text enabled through choice of materials, processes and forms.

- Stephan Balleux is a belgian artist based in Berlin, Germany. His work is dealing with position of painting in our digital age.The various techniques (drawing, painting, sculpture, video and special effects) constitute as many fields of investigation. From these experiences emerges an image, in constant change, erasing any temporality.

over ten years. His work depicts highly detailed and individual
perspectives of people, landscape, nature, light and shadow. The

- Dominic Redfern
- Redfern works within the tradition of performative video art, often depicting myself alone, in private spaces, caught in some unresolved narrative of threat and precariousness. Redfern's work operates in the gap between self-portraiture, fiction and document to draw audiences’ attention to the artifice of screen language.

- Philip Samartzis
- Philip Samartzis is one busy and motivated man. If he's not in Australia
performing with local and international musicians, currating sound events,
making records or wondering various environments for field recordings,
then you can probably find him in Germany or Japan doing the same things
and more. All this jet setting has done wonders in creating and nurturing
international collaborations and with another trip to Japan looming,
there's no doubt the possibilities will continue to flourish.

- Darren Wardle
- Darren Wardle’s paintings of abandoned structures use Modernist architecture to explore spatial illusion as well as to elaborate a vision of contemporary consciousness. His seamless nearly cinematic landscapes incorporate an obsessive finish in his depictions of surfaces, furniture, and other decorative elements in a given space. The artifice of these hyper-real environments is heightened by Wardle’s trademark use of extremely synthetic color, a delirious counterpoint to the austerity of much Modernist architecture. The resulting interior and exterior spaces seem schizophrenic in their attributes, and, along with the shifting perspectives he often employs within a single picture plane, give a portrait of the loneliness and confusion of contemporary existence as well as the failure of Modernism as a cohesive aesthetic movement.

- Heidi Yardley
- Heidi Yardley is a Melbourne based artist working predominantly in the fields of painting and drawing. Her work explores a dark subterranean world that is familiar yet cloaked in mystery. She has recently explored collage as source material for her paintings, creating a sense of tension and displacement within the work. Drawing from history, memory and popular culture these images become a combination of remembrances and re-imagined worlds. Her images of the figure allude to heightened states of being; desire, loss, pain and ecstasy. Many images are sourced from the past (often the 1960’s and 70’s) and a sense of nostalgia is inherent in the work. The viewer is left to draw their own conclusions when faced with these unresolved yet suggestive narratives.
