MEGAN SMALL Megan Small’s artwork speaks volumes to her unique perspective with elegant observations of form and texture. With 30 years of artistic endeavours, her latest work is a captivating example of this artists ever evolving style and technique. Over the last year, Megan has been working on a variance of pieces in a multiple of mediums, from painting with clay and natural ochres, the use of fire and heat on a multitude of mediums, sculpture and monoprints - she has never been afraid of new and unique methods in order to achieve stunning, emotive results. Many of Megan’s pervious works has been exhibited not only here but in the US and she is excited to have her latest creations exhibiting at spliTMInds in her hometown of Bodalla. LOIS SELBY Trained as a ceramic artist at the Australian National University Institute of the Arts, in the past decade or so Lois has bunny-hopped across Australia several times. Lois became aware (very quickly!) it’s difficult to bunny-hop with a large kiln strapped to her back. To maintain a creative practice she turned her eye and hand to other materials and currently works with a range of materials including up-cycled wood, old metal, wool, paraphernalia and found objects. SpliTMInds offers Lois the opportunity to exhibit recent works made incorporating naturally dyed silk, paper, ribbon, material, buttons, zippers and other materials. Lois finds the alchemy of the dyeing process absorbing and the post cutting, twisting and wrapping to produce the work appealing. Dyeing agents used in the process may include eucalyptus, blackberry, onion skin, turmeric, walnut, tea, basil, bay leaves, dahlia and geranium flowers. When her kiln is re-wired Lois intends to work again in clay. Lois maintains her sense of optimism, realism and humour. J&S DESIGN – Joel Spooner/Shay Nowicki J&S was formed when two inspired designers with a passion for the creative arts decided they should combine efforts and offer their unique perspective and original ideas, as an all inclusive service to those who want to make a statement with their graphic design. But, J&S couldn’t pass up the opportunity to exhibit some of their digital artwork alongside some admired local artists. Their recently launched boutique design firm keeps them pretty busy, however their myriad of passion projects are always a creative joy.
