Jacqueline Rush Lee is a Hawaii-based sculptor recognized for her work with the book form. Rush Lee is interested in the aesthetic of books as cultural objects that come with their own histories of use and meaning. By using books as her canvas or building block, Jacqueline transforms their formal and conceptual arrangement through a variety of practices in which the physicality, and thus the context of the books have been altered. Remaining open to the physical and metaphorical transformations that occur in her working process, Lee’s residual sculptures or installations emerge as a palimpsest – a document that bears traces of the original text within its framework but possesses a new narrative as a visual document of another time.
My name is Rachel Moodie (nee Wells) and I am an Artist, Designer, Maker and Mum.
I live in the outskirts of Sydney, above Darling Mills Creek... hence the name;
Darling Mills Studio.
When I was a kid I was always creating something drawn, painted, crafted or sewn.
As a bigger kid I studied fine art, textiles and graphic design and these days I am exhibiting art, crafting prints, designing homewares and looking after a toddler!
Karen burst onto the local art scene in her early 40's surprising most with her ability in numerous mediums including charcoal and oil.
Early loss & challenge led Karen to an interest in the mechanisms that inspire human behaviours and emotion. Not having studied art at school, Karen spent years traveling, photographing and experiencing life but knew this was only a foundation for something as yet intangible.
Turning 40 heralded the recognition for Karen that life is meant for the living and corporate life was simply no longer tolerable. She spent the following 5 years working part-time and attending Fine Art studies at TAFE College where she discovered new mediums and skills and, most importantly, the confidence to share her art.
Living and working on the beautiful Central Coast of NSW (Australia), Karen brings her interest in emotion to every medium she uses resulting in rich, piercing and at times hauntingly beautiful imagery. Karen’s influences have been early realist painter Caravaggio, surrealist painter Dali, as well as contemporary artists Georgia O’Keefe, Lucian Freud & Ben McLaughlin.
In her first 5 years, Karen has successfully hung three solo shows, two collaborations; participated in many group shows; won awards (listed below); twice entered the prodigious Archibald Portrait Prize (NSW); shortlisted in the Hornsby Art Prize, SHE Competition, Gosford Art Prize & St George Art Awards and her art hangs on the walls of the NSW Police HQ.
Now sought for commission work, Karen's work graces collections from Australia to Coppenhagen.

Beth Solin is an America artist who currently is working on a new installation titled Out Me In Me Out ©, an extensive group of cast-Lucite sculptures that will be the core of several site-specific installations. This new pieced builds upon Beth's body of work by shifting from architectural installations with figurative influence to a work that is figurative in its entirety consisting of 14 life-size figures, all animals, some human, some not. The original figures are being sculpted in clay before the finals are cast in the Lucite. When finished, floating in each of the their clear bodies will be sub-sculptures - metaphors for the spine, vascular system, and unconscious thought. In this installation, Beth will be addressing concerns about where humans as a species are headed, especially with respect to the increasingly isolated and insulated position, of the individual within “the pack.”
Out Me In Me Out © re-contextualizes a persistent sensation that has been with me my entire life; a profound outsiderness I felt during my youth, which in later years morphed into feeling like a voyeur, and finally a stranger onto myself, the ultimate voyeur on the outside of my own body looking in. Now, what strikes me with great force and what caused the sizable shift in my work was the realization that humans as an animal group seem to be headed down a similar path. And for this I am confronted with an unrelenting thought; that no longer are we an interdependent roaming herd searching for and to benefit the greater whole. Instead, we have become millions of lone wolves disoriented and roaming, forced by lack of space to stand close, with no greater whole in sight."
This installation, which is by far Beth's largest to date, may also be her most important. For it is out of her deep concerns that she is dedicated to such a huge undertaking, both physically and financially. While her last two large-scale installations were funded through the Pollock–Krasner Foundation, the Memorial Foundations for Jewish Culture and the Eben Demarest Trust Award, Beth will be seeking to cover the initial costs for Out Me In Me Out © through the crowd-funding site Kickstarter. She will be launching her fundraiser between May and June 2016.
In addition to outside funding, Beth supplements the cost of her installations and drawings through working as a sculptor and scenic artist on New York-based movie and television productions. Among a few have been Analyze That, Kate and Leopoldo, Sex and the City (the series), The School of Rock, Spiderman 2 and 3, Across The Universe, The Producers, John Wick 2 and more. She recently finished working on the new Netflix drama series, The OA set to air mid to late 2016 and is currently working on a film titled Wonderstruck based on the children's graphic novel.
Beth also wrote the lyrics to, co-wrote the music for and sang Moth ©, a song that was used as the theme song for The Text of Sex, a play that premiered at the 2014 NYC International Fringe Theater Festival in New York City. Beth adapted the song from a book of poetry she recently completed last fall titled The Moth The Streetlight And The Moon ©. In 2014 French gender bender fashion magazine, Lash Magazine, published "Thing", an Op-Ed article Beth wrote about her work for their summer issue on Gender.
Born in 1969 in West–Lafayette, Indiana, Beth grew up in the American Midwest, and lived abroad in England, Switzerland, and Italy. While earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Sculpture from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and a minor in Italian, she spent a year studying drawing in Florence, Italy through the University of Syracuse, NY, and carving marble independently in Pietra Santa, Lucca, Italy. In 1993 Beth moved to New York where she spent 18 years in Manhattan and Brooklyn. In 1994, she received an Associates Degree in Scenic Painting from the Studio School of Stage Design in Jersey City, NJ after which she received United Scenic Artists Local 829 Track A acceptance in 1998. Two years later, Beth earned her Masters of Fine Arts Degree in Sculpture at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, VA. She then returned to Brooklyn until 2009, when she moved to Fair Haven, NJ, where she now resides with her husband and two sons.
Tamara Mendels' paintings emerge from a formulaic painting technique which uses the body and arms as tools to create a spontaneous overlapping and layering process of colour and resin. The work deals in modes of abstraction by exploring the dynamic tension between foreground, background and surface: a white blanket of enamel paint acts as an erasure, effectively ‘whiting out’ parts of the painting to reveal an isolated gestural marking.
Her performative technique maps-out in one fluid motion a new gestural marking embodying a high energy, richness of colour, illuminative and alluring surface. When her paintings are viewed in series the works culminate to describe somewhat archaic hidden abstract language, meanings derived at the viewer’s discretion.
Mendels has exhibited paintings, in Sydney, New York, Los Angeles, Texas and Miami. She is the co-founder of Jon Frum Art Foundation and 2020 Art Shows Sydney. Mendels is represented by Catinca Tabacaru Gallery New York.
Going by the pseudonym BK DIECI, I am an emerging artist working across a variety of mediums including painting, drawing, textiles and digital media.
Beginning with the traditional medium of drawing, I transform my dreams and nightmares into intimate digital and painted playgrounds. I want to bring my array of thoughts, imagery and characters together to explore these relationships, their impact and the forms they inhabit beyond the canvas.
Laden with sexual undertones, mythical creatures, exotic environments and human flesh these dystopic worlds delve into my own precarious fantasies. Amid the furore of vibrant colours are dark, sinister nuances harnessed in dripping bodily fluids, bloody tear stains, disjointed limbs and appropriated faces.
Inspired by natural environments, wildlife and the associated patterns derived from their forms I combine these with my obsession of pop culture. From living among the quirky streets of Tokyo that ooze colour, sexuality and disdain for the ordinary to the intricacies of western comic book characters, hyper-real fantasies and video games.
Currently my artistic practice investigates themes pertaining to perfection, gender and sexual identity. I utilise fantasy genre as a means to surpass language and culture in an attempt to convey these dystopic scenes.
This is my dark, twisted, paranormal fantasy from deep within my subconscious. No excuses, no lies, no apologies.
Christian Scott is a photographer, make up artist, photo retoucher, and graphic designer. He’s been in the industry for more than 14 years.
Fresh out of graduating from high school, Christian went straight into studying photography at The Australian Centre for Photography in Sydney.
To his surprise, the first studio he had a job interview with hired him on the spot. He was taught make up by one of the artists there and became a make up artist for the studio as well as a photographer. He then learnt the original art of hand retouching by an old German gentleman who used to retouch beautiful black and white photos in the 1950’s. The studio then went from film to digital and he was eventually retouching digitally. By the end of his seven years at that first studio he was a make up artist there, a photographer, a retoucher, and was head of the digital department.
Christian was then head hunted by another Sydney based studio, that gave him an offer he couldn’t refuse. So he gave six weeks notice to his current job, started his own business, and started contracting as a retoucher.
Christian has had his work on the cover of SX magazine and New Idea magazine in Australia. He’s also been published in Blue magazine, Hotelier magazine, and in a book called “Undressed to Thrill”. Christian has done numerous shoots for album covers and various publicity and promotion material for a variety of people and companies while in Australia.
Christian moved to Los Angeles in October of 2008 where he met Leeza Gibbons and became her make up artist. He has also done on-camera work for Sheer Cover, a mineral make up line, and appeared on an advertorial for Sheer Cover on Australia’s top rating show, “The Morning Show”. Guthy-Renker also asked Christian to film a “how to” make up segment for them to use for the Sheer Cover website, and the new Sheer Cover infomercial in Australia.
In July of 2010 Christian was flown to Paris to shoot for a new up and coming studio in Sydney! And in September Christian will be flying to Adelaide for another fashion based shoot.
To date, Christian has produced shoots and done make up for clients in Australia, the U.S and throughout Europe.
Born in America, Sydney-based Kim Leutwyler migrated to Australia in 2012. She works in a variety of media including painting, installation, ceramics, printmedia and drawing. Kim holds concurrent bachelor degrees in Studio and Art History from Arizona State University, and additionally graduated from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago with a Painting and Drawing degree.
Kim’s current work takes its form in paintings dealing with images of beauty, gender and Queer-identity. She has come to focus on painting as a medium because of its primarily masculine history in the western art canon. By entering into the modernist painting field Kim hopes to destabilize gender borders just as LGBTQ artists have been doing since the 70’s and earlier. Her artwork has been exhibited in multiple galleries throughout the United States and Australia, and she is part of a permanent collection at both the Naestved Cultural Center in Denmark, and the Brooklyn Art Library in New York. Her painting 'Start the Riot' is currently touring Australia as part of the 2015 Archibald Prize Finalist Exhibition. Leutwyler recently won the Midsumma Visual Arts Prize, and her painting is the hero image for to 2016 LGBTQ Festival in Melbourne, Australia.

Charles Firth is an Australian comedian, best known as a member of The Chaser productions CNNNN and The Chaser's War on Everything. He is the brother of Verity Firth who was a Minister for the Labor Government of New South Wales. Firth is currently editor of The Chaser Quarterly, “a journal of low-brow satire and high-brow toilet humor” that features new work from Australia’s top comedy writers, including long-form satirical essays and stories to short-form news satire and ad parodies.
Firth attended Sydney Grammar School, where along with Chaser colleagues Dominic Knight and Chas Licciardello he ran the satirical school magazine The Tiger. Firth went on to attend the University of Sydney where he completed an Arts degree in political science, edited the Honi Soit student newspaper, and in 1997, broke through a plate glass window during a University Senate meeting to protest the introduction of full fee paying places at the university. While attending Charles was also the subject of a reality-TV style documentary called Uni, by film-maker Simon Target, centered on the lives of students at the University of Sydney. Fellow Chaser Andrew Hansen was also a subject. It was aired on the ABC in 1996. On CNNNN, broadcast in 2003 and 2004, he played a role as host of the fictional segment "The Firth Factor", parodying journalistic styles used by the American Fox News commentator Bill O'Reilly's prime time show The O'Reilly Factor. During the 2004 Australian federal election (during production of The Chaser Decides) an eBay user of the name "Charles Firth" was seen selling their vote. But this segment was never aired. By 2006, Firth moved to the United States from which he periodically appeared on The Chaser's War on Everything in a segment about American culture entitled "Firth in the USA". This segment served to highlight American ignorance of Australia and the world in general. During this time Firth also researched and wrote his first book, American Hoax. This involved creating a number of fictional stereotypical American characters on both the progressive-left and conservative-right sides of American politics. The book explored the efforts of these characters (all played by Firth) to try to interact with real-world political groups and individuals. American Hoax was released in November 2006. Firth went to Adelaide in July 2007 to present at the Festival of Ideas with fellow Chaser Julian Morrow, where his performance included asking the audience to SMS their questions to him, throwing lollies to the audience, and "defacing" three Wikipedia articles.
Firth worked on a new weekly print magazine and news website, which was launched in mid-August 2007 called The Manic Times. Firth was also executive producer on a daily news satire program on ABC2 called The Roast. He generated controversy among the Westboro Baptist Church when he began to openly "flirt" with Fred Phelps's son while interviewing him for The Chaser's War on Everything at a Westboro picket. When Phelps junior began to walk away, Firth followed him and continued to openly "flirt" with him, persisting despite being called a "fag-ass pervert" by the rest of the picketers.
Firth is married to Amanda Tattersall, Founding Director of the Sydney Alliance and co-founder of getup.org.au, a community organizer and author of Power in Coalition a book on building coalitions between unions and community organisations. They have two sons, Hartley and Angus.
Mat Blackwell has written for The Glasshouse, Good News Week, The Sideshow, Room 101, Wednesday Night Fever, and numerous Comedy Debates, as well as several novels, novellas, short stories, and essays. He's won a bunch of awards for his writing, but, well, Obama won a Nobel Peace Prize. Just saying. A proponent of bio-anarchy, chaos-musick, and free-collage, Mat Blackwell refuses to confirm or deny which side he takes in the Eternal Battle between the Interdimensional Reptiles and the Things that Should Not Be. (However, we're fairly certain it's the latter.) He is also one of the co-creators of the occult culture-liberationist underground The IWML, but the less said about that, the better.
I'm interested in creating images with a narrative that you can feel. Building emotion into my images makes the process very intuitive and extremely slow.
The formal qualities of my work reflect the conceptual indulgence provided by art school, the polish I learnt assisting fashion photographers and the many hours I spend making pictures alone in the studio.
In past years I have collaborated on projects with Future Classic Music, Rosemount Australian Fashion Week and Oxfam/Cirque de Soleil.

I was born in Manila, Philippines and migrated to Sydney in 1994. I studied art at Meadowbank TAFE College in 1997 with an Advance Diploma in Fine Arts.
My only aim in mark making is to create an artwork with power attraction and not purely an aesthetic experience. I start by stripping down the image to its bear skeleton and reincarnate the soul into my own world. I then reinvent its spatial composition and build multiple layers of impressions without dominating those beneath it. A subcultural hieroglyphic language occupying a continuous space which inspired by an ancient language such as Egytian hieroglyphs, Aztecs writings and Pre Spanish Filipino alphabet.
A permutation of these symbols and patterns influences my whole creative thinking.
