Sarah Breen-Lovett, Katoomba
Sarah Breen Lovett is an artist focused on the use of moving image installation to re-present our intricate and often overlooked understandings of the built environment... Through an anti-spectacle aesthetic, the moving image becomes a subversive tool to re-construct the subtleties of our inter-dependent and conditioned relationship to architecture.

The process of memory is an ongoing concern in my practice. I am interested in how bodies shape objects and inhabit spaces, imbuing them with memory, and how we respond to and are shaped by these experiences. Much of my previous work, including my recent installation, titled Loess, is an exploration of these ideas.

Mandy is a visual artist from the Blue Mountains working in the mediums of photography, public art installations, community art projects and mosaic murals. Mandy''s work is engaged with the complex and ongoing enquiry into human social behaviour. Her photographs aim to capture life from unique angles, by really getting to know her subjects personalities; she believes these alternate perspectives can make the difference between glimpsing someone’s deeper reality or just seeing their façade as we pass them on the street.
Her paintings are the external expression of the thoughts that occur as a personal running commentary on, or acknowledgement of, the unpredictability of life and the art world. The images derive from the artist’s life - the people, objects and sights found on the edges or periphery of consciousness, dislocated, presented and connected to each other in a new way.

I have started engraving in 1997. It was a great encounter for new way to deal with glass. Make my own blank glass then work on the surfaces, using diamond tools to create new meaning. Glass is the unique material to work on and it has been giving me pressures to work on. I have done some traditional motives on the glass as well as new motifs.
Ian Milliss, Linden
Artists do not usually seek anonymity yet for many years Ian Milliss saw it as essential to the way he had chosen to work.
When Ian Milliss began exhibiting in the late 1960s at Sydney’s Central Street Gallery - the artist run centre of hard edged abstraction - his work consisted of modular, repetitive, geometric shapes grouped together to produce a series of ‘folding’ illusionistic canvases. Even these earliest of works done in his teens display his interest in ambiguity and multiple readings, the clash of illusion and reality that was to develop into the preoccupation of his entire career - the many ways in which we try to impose structure on a reality which is ultimately unknowable. Within the first few years he recognised art itself to be one of those illusory structures...
Linda Callaghan, Bullaburra
Art is my inner voice and an extension of who I am." Drawn to watercolours with the unpredictable way they burst and mingle allows Linda to become a shape maker. Using vibrant layers of paint and ink techniques, her works border on the edge of fantasy, with magical energy showing the viewer an unreal world. Inspired by the earth''s beauty and the use of different mediums, Linda also captures the play of light and colour in sweeping landscapes, seascapes and many other subjects in a realistic style. Linda''s work has been described as ethereal, spiritually uplifting and totally in tune with nature.
