Maybe Memories

BY ZARANIS NATACHA
@ VOL 10 ON JUL 01, 2015

Natacha Zaranis, art photographer, introduces her work to PechaKucha. Her artistic process involves bodies, portraits and landscapes which embody moments of her life leading to the universality of what they represent. She tells stories of a fantasized reality, which may sometimes seem strangely down to earth. Despite their apparent softness and spontaneous aestheticism, her pictures can be unsettling: far from being innocent, they reveal an underlying concern about absence and the idea that a shift can happen at any time. {In French}

Fragility, Flowers and Contemporary Portraits

BY GREER TOWNSHEND
@ VOL 18 ON AUG 24, 2016

"What I love about the medium is its innate honesty. A drawing lets slip its own history."

 In "Fragility, Flowers and Contemporary Portraits" from PechaKucha Night Sunshine Coast Vol. 18Greer Townshend shares her passion for and practice of drawing.  Her work is frequently underpinned by the concept of fragility, whether related to the process of memory, language or the self. Greer's practice combines portraiture and elements of nature, inferring an inherent connection between the two, and denoting life cycles. Greer will be talking about her take on ‘creating’ contemporary portraiture including her current fascination with all things 'flowering'.
