Garry is a wildlife artist working in graphite, a medium which leans toward fine detail, and occasionally charcoal. The work generally starts from life observations and photo references, and together with a bit of imagination they can take many, many hours to complete.
He is also a fine wood artist working primarily in recycled timbers. His woodwork and drawings are wholly inspired by our unique Australian fauna. It is through these photorealistic drawings and marquetry pieces that he is striving to heighten awareness of these wonderful creatures.
Garry has received awards in Samford Show, Moreton Bay Art Awards, Lethbridge 10000, QWASI International Wildlife Exhibition, Holmes Art Prize
Garry will be demonstrating his drawing practices at Art with Altitude 2019

Gerry has a three-year Tafe Certificate in Studio Ceramics, and has specialised in Raku pottery for more than 25 years. Since Raku became popular among Western potters sixty years ago its scope has been broadened to include sculpture and brilliant glaze colour. He has worked with several Melbourne potters who specialise in glaze and firing technology to solve colour problems in Raku glazes and to refine Raku firing techniques.
For Gerry, Raku also has a deep philosophical base in Zen, which he finds compelling and which influences his work. Zen stresses spontaneity, simplicity and the aesthetics of irregularity and asymmetry as found in nature, as opposed to the aesthetics of balance and regularity as found in most western art. Western Raku is also influenced by Abstract Expressionism, which teaches that an artwork is the product of the individual, the process and the material, not just the product of the dominating will of the artist.
Gerry has exhibited regularly in Australia since 1990, and his work was included in several shows in Italy in 1996. His Raku is in private collections in Australia and in many overseas countries.
Gerry has written a play that has been performed professionally, and is also a photographer. Two of his photographic portrait exhibitions have been acquired by the Queensland State Library.

Born in East Germany prior to the Berlin Wall’s collapse, Denise Reichenbach brings a particular artistic sensibility to her work. A hybrid form of painting, drawing, collage and sculpture, her work swings between abstract and figurative composition, dealing with the complexity of human relationships. She incorporates strong references to her German background in history and art, but makes room for intuitive exploration through the conscious deskilling of her painterly technique.
With unbridled emotion never far from the surface, her work is a very raw exploration of what is hers and what isn’t in the world, seeking authenticity without being influenced by thoughts of success or outcome.
In a career spanning over a decade, Reichenbach has exhibited widely, and taken part in several residences throughout Europe and Australia. Since emigrating to Australia in 2008, she has been a finalist in the Queensland Figurative Award, the Bayton Award, the Emerald Art Prize, the Martin Hanson Memorial Award, the D1 Kunstsalon in Leipzig/Germany and the Lethbridge Small Scale Award. In 2012, Reichenbach was the recipient of a Highly Commended Award at the Brigalow Art Festival in Biloela. With her latest body of work, being a combination of both Australian and European influences, the artist incorporated a strong colour theme with figurative elements, culminating in her recent solo show at Galerie Potemka in Leipzig, Germany.
Currently living and working in Brisbane, she has studied at the Academy of Visual Arts in Leipzig, the National Art School in Sydney and at the Queensland College of Art (QCA).
Shavarnia is a multi-award winning artist of many years. Her work is inspired by nature in the form of micro, macro, aerial and satellite. Her observation of the world from these perspectives inspires her through the intricacies, beauty and perfection she finds within all things.
Her focus and use of fragmental vision offers a surprising yet deeply understood view of the ordinary. She predominantly works in acrylics, crayons and inks. Her work can also include found objects, luscious papers and gold leaf creating an atmosphere that has a penetrating and alluring quality.

Glass has been a lifelong fascination for me and continues to intrigue with its versatility whether decorative or functional, it’s range of colour and style and it’s transparency.
I also use it sculpturally within assembled pieces often based on ‘treasures from the tip’.I love the playfulness in both the making and hopefully viewing of these pieces which allow the use of a variety of media. They are designed to appeal to the child in all of us.
