Cutting Pages

@ VOL 19 ON DEC 13, 2013

Charlene Asato joins us from the Big Island and has enjoyed creating with paper for many years. She finds it very exciting that a simple fold changes a two-dimensional plane into a three-dimensional form and artist’s books provide a wonderful avenue to convey this energy.

Life on the edge!

@ VOL 23 ON SEP 20, 2017

Nicola Moss is a visual artist and regular tree hugger with a burning question – What is sustainability? Visiting natural areas and green space along the south-east Queensland coast for the past decade, she ponders possible futures where conservation and development find balance. Initially speaking about ecological problems, Nicola’s practice took a shift in 2015. A sensory experience on the edge of Moreton Bay prompted a new optimism. Her works reflect on the sense of well-being, contact with green space, can provide in our everyday lives. Nicola engages audiences in considering and celebrating the value of healthy environment. Her exhibition ‘Life on the edge’ responds to the Lost and Found theme – although many pristine environments have been lost, Nicola has found communities are able to create healthy environments!
