Poppy Skipper, Untitled

Poppy Skipper, Untitled (acrylic on canvas), 10 May 2020
This is a character that I have been using throughout my work that I do, but is anonymous, as it does not yet have a name. I have done the character on multiple things, from mugs and phone cases, to stickers and cardboard boxes. I chose these colours as they are warm organic colours that contrast. Stylistically, it is inspired by Keith Haring’s work.

 

Angela Morrissey, Ayşe Meryem

Angela Morrissey, Ayşe Meryem, 14 May 2020
This is a drawing I did of Ayşe Meryem using graphite pencils. I hope that I have captured the essence of Ayşe with her cheeky smile and mischievous grin. She has a determined look on her face and her ardent spirit shines through. I hope she never loses that!

 

Julie Kala, Walk around Bendigo

Julie Kala, Walk around Bendigo, 14 May 2020
Went for my walk last week and came across a lovely, tired looking house.  I took a couple of photos to sketch during a Webex meeting.

Lilly Skipper, You tell me to draw a perfect circle, I draw a square.

Lilly Skipper, You tell me to draw a perfect circle, I draw a square, 7 May 2020
One of my favorite artists, Gerard Richter, once said, ‘It’s like with every picture... I don’t like the ones I understand’. His practice inspires me to make work to my own standard with a sense of 'planlessness', evident in this abstract collage work.

Aimé Sacrez, Season of Gold (Acrylics and pastel on canvas paper), 16 May 2020

Jane Ineson, You are not alone

Jane Ineson, You are not alone (installation, found object and ceramic figures), 12 May 2020
Having lived mostly alone for years, solitude has become more acceptable and less daunting for me with current physical restrictions. I have eased into playful home making to honour my artist retreat, and maquette sculptures have moved like gnomes into the garden, making it a little kitsch.  
Bushwalking with a friend, we found treasures; she, a beautiful fossil; and me, a broken discarded zodiac plaque.
I had fun creating this installation as a welcome for anticipated visitors.

Dr Michael J Leach, Autumnal, 17 May 2020

Meg Holmes, Autumn in my home garden

Meg Holmes, Autumn in my home garden (oil painting), 10 May 2020
Our lives are very different at the moment, yet nature brings continuity, moving through seasons.  I have enjoyed being home to watch the seasonal changes.  I was inspired to do a plein-air painting of this beautiful autumn tree with the light moving through the leaves.  I had to move quickly as each day, the leaves changed colours and fell.  These changes pushed me to make a quick little study, an enjoyable afternoon.

 

St Paul's Cathedral Choir, Thomas Tallis—If Ye Love Me

St Paul's Cathedral Choir, Thomas Tallis—If Ye Love Me, 17 May 2020
Singing together during the pandemic: Our first virtual choir project exercised more than our voices! We learnt to make synchronised recordings, send them, balance voices and assemble a video. We hope to bring some joy to our congregation and to everyone who hears us. The learning curve continues...
