For the last few years I have been lucky enough to share a space at the Stafford St Studio in South Murwillumbah. Here is a little blurb written for a recent exhibition.
The Stafford St Studio is home to six artists and visiting creatives. In its two years of operation, art-making in the space has evolved and matured, reflecting the many hours of individual work put in and the enlivening dynamics of a collective art space.
Projects include painting, papermaking, weaving, collage, printing, sewing, textiles, ceramics and mixed media work.
Conceptually themes range from climate change and asylum seekers to jungian symbology and figurative expressionism. While we each work away on our own creative endeavours, ‘conversations’ between different artists work can sometimes emerge and evolve. For example, handmade paper made from a banana tree in the backyard made by one artist may be used in the collage of another, and individual artworks will often progress after a dialogue with other artists. We embrace the way our work can mirror and respond to each other like a conversation.
