In this sculpture exhibition, John explores the nostalgia of childhood memories. He deliberately created the works to be oversized, creating a feeling of wonder and excitement, recreating the emotion a child would feel in the presence of a new toy. He hopes these works will evoke a playful memory for everyone who sees them.

Young’s landscape paintings should not to be read literally. Although the rolling hills with the dominating cypress pines have a familiarity and you feel comfortably that you are in Gippsland these paintings are not meant to be a specific geographical place. The artist has drawn on his surrounds to explore an internal landscape; a state of mind and a commentary on our environment.Read More

The contrariety of beauty and ugliness, tenderness and fear, desire and anxiety runs through all of Pezaloom’s work, challenging ideas of the body in art, cognitive functionality, notions of the erotic, and systems of control. Since being diagnosed with early-onset Parkinson’s Disease, his work in visual and sound art has mostly been driven by an exploration of the physical and mental symptoms of his illness, even using these symptoms as tools to create his own distinctive style of artistic expression.Read More
