JENNY GREEN

Jenny says of her sculptures, “I aim to capture a moment, a movement, a place. My sculptures are ‘drawings in space’ evoking both mood and action.” While the media she uses may be industrial, her sculptures are light and airy. Her works echo the tension between companionship and solitude, and between space and material. Jenny's work has been selected for Sculpture at Sawmillers, Sculpture in the Vineyards, the Blake Prize Director’s Cut, the Willoughby Art Prize, & Avant exhibition at the Opera House. Her work is represented in corporate and private collections and she has won major prizes.

ERNIE SALERNO

Ernest’s works range from sculptures for public and private commissions in bronze, glass, steel and clay to conceptual installations utilizing found and discarded objects.

Whilst difficult to categorise artistically, due in part to the unrestrained nature of the materials he uses, and his ambivalence to any particular school, his works could be described as emblematic of his era, and loosely ranges in style from the Baroque to conceptualised Post Modernism. He offers little by way of explanation, but invites the viewer to experience a cognitive process and discourse with the work.

As Rix says, "I'm simply a figurative artist seeking to offer a visual insight into the individual’s quest for dignity and identity, and in this regard I’m interested in form, shape, movement and space. In my work, style doesn’t mean that much; it’s not that important, it’s little more than a particular artistic attitude that can be translated into different media, linguistic forms and visual solutions. In my treatment of the subject I seek to offer equal measures of humor and humility."
