Kim Elliott

Kim specialises in figurative sculpture and commission portraiture.

Based in Sydney, she started sculpting whilst living overseas, studying at the Brentwood School of Fine Arts, Los Angeles.  She continued her studies back in Australia at the Royal Art Society, and The Sydney Sculpture School.

Kim has been sculpting for the past 15 years, and still finds capturing the beauty of figurative sculpture, inspiring and exhilarating. Capturing gesture, movement and proportions is her driving force when sculpting.

Drawn to a more traditional style, the majority of her works are cast in bronze, with natural wood also playing a part.

Her desire is to create sculpture with a timeless beauty as it always remains motivating and challenging.

Michael Sprott

Michael has recently become a sculptor following decades working in multi-national corporations. 

He had taken this opportunity to explores a variety of materials and forms, experimenting with both figurative and abstract.

Michael’s art finds links between the abstract and the realistic, highlighting the familiar with aspects of pure form. He finds a balance between the awkward and the graceful; the obvious and the odd.

Showing all angles and aspects at once, Michael gently twists and elongates his works away from the known figures towards something less known but still familiar .... the abstract within each body shape.

 


Shazia Imran

Australian artist and sculptor, Shazia Imran is best known for her expressive mixed media pieces. She has won many national and international awards including Lorenzo il Magnifico Award at the Florence Biennale 2015, Applied Arts Award at the London Biennale 2017, ‘Most Collectible Artist’ Award at Shenzhen City Art Fair, First prize at the 2018 Chianciano Biennale and multiple awards in Australia.

Her work has been exhibited internationally and hangs in public and private collections in Australia, USA, UK, Hong Kong, Thailand, China and Singapore.

Shazia draws her inspiration from her travels, exploring the infinite expressiveness of her subjects through mixed media. Her delicately multi-layered paintings explore the connections between landscape, memory and the subconscious through texture and
the interplay of light and dark creating an atmosphere that opens itself up to multiple meanings.

Use of colour, shape, texture and light defines her style in capturing the personality and emotions of the subject.

Her recent body of work is based on the mandala – representing the wholeness and unity of mankind. Representing the universe itself, the mandala is both microcosm and macrocosm and we all are part of it.


Ian Galbraith

Ian, a very experienced artist, has been painting and exhibiting since the 1960’s.

He has been involved in both solo and group exhibitions in the UK, Spain, Italy, Switzerland, and Australia.

Living in Ibiza Spain, Ian was heavily involved in the art scene, exhibiting his paintings. He maintains his contact with Ibiza via annual painting trips.

Ian loves working “pleinair”, capturing the light and colours to create poetic landscapes. He works predominantly in pastel and charcoal.

His art is in numerous private collections in France, Italy, Spain, UK, USA, Germany, and Australia.

Ian is now based in Hunters Hill, Sydney.


Steve Jannar

Steve Jannar is a Sydney-based artist.  He is essentially a figurative painter and his earlier period was very much influenced by the Heidelberg School of Australian Impressionists, in particular by Streeton, Roberts & Conder and in more recent times by Sydney Long. 

Since 2008 he has returned to painting in acrylic paint rather than oil, is painting on a larger scale and freeing up his style – resulting in more dramatic works with greater impact.

Most of his paintings in recent years have been ‘waterscapes’ – finding the element of water to be a visual magnet that most people are drawn to as a preferred object of view.

He has exhibited in and around Sydney for many years and is also represented in overseas collections.

Steve has won many prizes for his artwork including:

  • 1st prize in the ‘Landscape’ painting section of the Sydney Royal Arts Show (Easter Show) 2007

  • 1st prize in the ‘Australian Birds and/or Flowers (in their natural setting)’ section of the Sydney Royal Arts Show (Easter Show) 2014

David Wiggs

David is a Sydney based artist with a studio in Brookvale. He studied art at Seaforth TAFE Art College, completing a Diploma in Fine Art majoring in painting and a Post Graduate Certificate in Drawing.

David has grown up around Sydney’s harbour and beaches, surfing and exploring the natural beauty of his home and surrounding coast and country.

“It seems like a natural progression as an artist to paint and produce work in this landscape given that is where I have always spent my time”.

Most of his painting and drawing is done in the landscape or plein air, painting on site on the beaches, the harbour, the bush and out in the country.

The work is a response to the subject before him….in the moment. The movement of the water, the energy and theatre of the beach, the bridge, the harbour, the silence and power of the land and bush. And the beauty of the animals at the zoo.

“When you connect with the subject and bypass thought, painting is a special thing. It gets you closer”.

David has participated in many exhibitions and won numerous awards including:

  • Winner Northbridge Art Prize 2017

  • Finalist Hunters Hill Art Prize 2017

  • Finalist Northern Beaches Art Prize 2017

  • Finalist Mission to Seafarers Art Prize 2017 & 2016

  • Finalist Gosford Art Prize 2017 & 2016

  • FinalistWarringah Art Prize 2016


David Sim

One of the major themes of David Sim’s bronze sculpture works stem from his curiosity in motion and emotion. This is evident in many of his works, especially of equestrian figures and animals in motion. 

Another theme of David’s works stem from his interest in history. A series called the “Rulers of the World” captures the stoic people who once ruled their world. 

His appreciation for detail and in capturing the strength and character of the subjects is evident in his work.

David has studied sculpture at the Sydney Sculpture School.


Elizabeth Langreiter

Elizabeth’s introduction to painting was under very unusual circumstances.

In 2008, while playing competitive tennis, she was hit by a ball.  The hit caused a swelling and niggling pain in the back of her head, which required medical investigation. Luckily the cat scan came back all clear but she had this sudden urge to start painting.

In 2016 she was selected as one of the top 100 emerging artists in Australia and New Zealand by a panel of art experts including Ben Quilty, Roslyn Oxley and Amanda Love.

She did not connect the hit to the head to her urge to paint until some years later when she saw a program on Acquired Savant Syndrome, which is a condition where dormant savant skills emerge after a brain injury or disease…where few such skills were evident before.

Elizabeth has participated in a number of solo and group exhibitions.

Her art is now held in private collections in America, England, Canada, Japan, Austria, Croatia, Israel, Slovakia, New Zealand and Australia.
