Self-taught as an artist, but with a degree in plant biology Joe is drawn to depictions of nature in his art - sometimes pure landscape and sometimes looking at the interplay between nature and the man-made. 

A feature of Joe’s landscape work is intimate, depictions of nature’s entanglements and the fight for survival. 

Joe Blundell - Landscape Artist

Referencing traditional Japanese calligraphy, Alison combines her fascination of fluid forms with her knowledge and passion of colour. Her clean but lyrical and gives notion to a previous career in illustration, and her work engages with this interesting tension between art and design. Alison’s work is a sophisticated study of colour, juxtaposing vibrant and muted tones within a distinct visual rhythm.

Inspiration for her landscapes comes from the native plants and trees witnessed on walks around local and coastal bushland. It is the intimacy of the forms of flowers and leaves that draws her in rather than the expanse of a grand vista. Often large-scale forms are the key to the dynamism of her paintings and the expressive mark-making in her brushstrokes which add to their movement.

Sophie Perez

Sophie graduated with a Masters of Painting from The Royal College of Art London 2003.

Since moving to Melbourne in 2005 and now living on the Mornington Peninsula, she has continued her painting practice whilst raising a family.

Working with her favourite subject of the natural landscape and enjoying the physicality of paint, colour and suggestion of narrative.

The landscapes are places that have been visited often and allude to a presence or evoke a memory without including any figures.

The Australian landscapes and coastlines are a growing and evolving subject, challenging the artists own perception of colour and composition, working in a country so different from her own.
