Rory Fink

Perspective

fortyfivedownstairs gallery 45 Flinders Lane, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

This mixed media series looks at the way in which society lives under the power and influence of the various media outlets, whose published material has decidedly far-reaching effects on how we think, look and feel.

Gyungju Chyon, John Sadar, Rebecca Nel, Yurika McGuire

Mycalicoes

fortyfivedownstairs gallery 45 Flinders Lane, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

Unlike industrially processed materials such as timber, steel and plastics, a living material such as mycelium is unpredictable and hard to control. Mycelium is sensitive to its surrounding temperature, humidity, and light.

CLIMARTE

TREE

fortyfivedownstairs gallery 45 Flinders Lane, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

CLIMARTE is mounting an exhibition of 25 original artworks, each depicting a City of Melbourne trees. Trees face a dangerously warming world, among other threats. Life has a layered dialogue with trees in the city context. Trees in urban settings have circumstances not experienced by trees in non urban environments.

Naomi Bishop

Subtle Realms

fortyfivedownstairs gallery 45 Flinders Lane, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

Naomi Bishop’s paintings search restlessly for connections between the terrestrial and celestial spheres, between geology and astronomy, science and myth.  Intense and luminous, the paintings point to an invisible, unseen world that exists just beyond us.

Sal Cooper

Sombras

fortyfivedownstairs gallery 45 Flinders Lane, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

Sombras means shadows or spectres in Spanish.  Sal encountered it as a title translation of the 1970’s song Feelings by Morris Albert. These etchings, drawings and photographic works are also attempts at translation. They express a bleak and magical landscape she once inhabited, with all its fragility and potency. 

Becky Phiri

View to Joy

fortyfivedownstairs gallery 45 Flinders Lane, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

Phiri learned to sculpt and mix different coloured clays by decorating the wall plastering of the huts where she lived and grew up. Phiri channels and repurposes these skills in her artwork today, choosing to work instead on canvas and with acrylic mediums. Her artwork focuses on life through positivity. Through her work she seeks to engage the viewer with stimulating colours and a whimsical joy that draws from the beauty of everyday life.

Carolyn Roberts

Birdsong

fortyfivedownstairs gallery 45 Flinders Lane, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

Informed by botanical and scientific illustration, Carolyn Roberts deconstructs her environment in order to better understand it.

Mike Nicholls

Bird Call

fortyfivedownstairs gallery 45 Flinders Lane, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

The works in Bird Call reflect humanity’s social conscience regarding the natural environment, and the impact we collectively impose on the ecosystem and the self through ignorance and greed.

Mike Green

M A D: Mutually Assured Destruction

fortyfivedownstairs gallery 45 Flinders Lane, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

Mutually Assured Destruction (MAD) is a doctrine of military strategy and security policy where a full scale use of nuclear weapons by two or more opposing sides would cause the annihilation of both sides. It is based on the theory of deterrence, which holds that the threat of using strong weapons against the enemy prevents the enemy's use of those same weapons. As ridiculous as such a thing sounds, it is still today the modern deterrence of such an event

Soile Paloheimo

Where the Ocean is the Sky

fortyfivedownstairs gallery 45 Flinders Lane, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

This body of artwork embraces and examines the interference that occurs when technology and nature exchange properties, rational and random patterns interpenetrate, and regular structure produces irrational effects.

Kashi Ruffilli-O'Sullivan

Symptoms of Mortality

fortyfivedownstairs gallery 45 Flinders Lane, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

To create is to exercise the faith to attempt understanding. To understand is to surrender to empowerment from the intangible.

Oliver Bradley

Can’t See for Looking

fortyfivedownstairs gallery 45 Flinders Lane, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

The view becomes a window when a fly hits the glass; the next thought is which side is the fly on.

Gretchen Kaye

The Portable Park

fortyfivedownstairs gallery 45 Flinders Lane, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

Parks can be places of hushed silence until we allow them to speak to us. Until we halt and listen carefully to the poetry.

Bronni Krieger

Gould: Elizabeth Acknowledged

fortyfivedownstairs gallery 45 Flinders Lane, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

In a contemporary portrayal of Elizabeth Gould, Krieger has set her against a backdrop of the Australian bush. Gentle triggers allude to her uncertainty in an unknown land, perhaps a fear of finding herself unwelcome.

Pamela Reid

“Meet Me Under the Clocks”

fortyfivedownstairs gallery 45 Flinders Lane, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

Growing up, going into the city to catch-up with friends was always, “Meet me under the clocks” at Flinders St Station. Collins Street was ‘the Paris end’ and Federation Square was the Gas & Fuel building site.

Marco Luccio

CUOROSENSA: A Reverse Archaeology

fortyfivedownstairs gallery 45 Flinders Lane, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

In Cuorosensa, the artist’s bold, energetic and confident mark-making coheres into recognisable Luccio-esque themes — we see his Eiffel Tower, his Trojan Horse, his meditations on the myths and figures of classical antiquity — but closer inspection reveals a canvas of interlocking postcards with tantalising glimpses of the messages they once conveyed.

Primavera showcases a collection of figurative paintings exploring themes of isolation, physical expression, and sexuality.

Rebekah Stuart

Orison

fortyfivedownstairs gallery 45 Flinders Lane, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

In relating closely to the term ‘Barocco’ meaning disfigured or oddly shaped pearl, the artist feels that so long as we are living, mortal beings, the openings to inspire us closer into who we are, may require the light’s counterpart of darkness to never desist.

Kyle Minors

Fishtail

fortyfivedownstairs gallery 45 Flinders Lane, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

Using algorithmic processes and generative techniques, the artist explores the intricate patterns and shapes that emerge from natural phenomena like the flow of water, the growth of plants, and the cold majesty of mountains.

Shayle Flesser

Ksenia Shinkarenko

Honne

fortyfivedownstairs gallery 45 Flinders Lane, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

Lindi Forde

Cadence

fortyfivedownstairs gallery 45 Flinders Lane, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

Janno McLaughlin
