About the artists 

Melbourne ceramicist Eva Giannoulidis is owner and operator of Ceramica Mechanica: an artist-run warehouse studio, gallery and store located in Strathmore. Drawing inspiration from the aliveness of plants, Eva’s art practice involves wheel throwing, hand-building and colourist painting techniques. Rich pastel colours and textures are evident in Eva’s distinctive ceramics.

Jasper Killick (a.k.a Toggles) is a Strathmore based multi-disciplinary artist who holds a Bachelor of Fine Art in Sculpture and Mechanical Engineering. He uses a variety of digital fabrication techniques to produce complex interlocking structures which fit together like puzzles to make functional psychedelic playgrounds for all ages. Toggles' work has been featured at Festivals across Australia.

The Billboard Project

The Billboard Project is a series of large format photographic billboards that create unexpected public galleries in and around the Keilor Road Shops in Niddrie.

The locations can be discovered around Wallace Mall, and they connect to the billboard in the front garden of the Incinerator Gallery.

These public sites feature changing exhibitions by some of Melbourne's best contemporary artists. Elvis Richardson, Clare Rae, Zoe Croggon, Petrina Hicks, Mike Read, Genevieve Grieves, Dianne Jones, James Voller and Steven Rhall have all exhibited in these spaces.

Honey Long and Prue Stent

25 January – 22 May, 2019

Amobea Phase II, 2015, archival pigment print

Working across photography, performance, installation and sculpture, Honey Long and Prue Stent (both b. 1993, Sydney, Australia) have been making art together since they were teenagers. The collaborative artists employ the body, the Australian landscape, and unconventional materials to distort and fragment the bodily form - often with unexpected outcomes. Dreamy, fluid, saccharine, gritty and fleshy, Long and Stent challenge and captivate audiences with powerful imagery that crosses the subversive and the surreal.

In their photographic series, Phanta Firma, Long and Stent quote and appropriate signs, tropes, and motifs of women from contemporary culture and the canon of art history as an erotic lure that guides the viewer into unfamiliar territory. Embodying Botticelliean nymphs and Venuses, Classical sculptures, and sirens, their bodies are draped in material that clings or billows in a seductive Monroe-esque fashion. Their gaze never confronts the viewer. Rather than passive, still and compliant, these young figures are in control, self-assured, and enjoying their own agency as they completely immerse themselves in their hyper real earthly landscapes.

Long and Stent currently live and work in Melbourne, Australia and are represented by ARC ONE Gallery, Melbourne.

Wednesday, 13 March – Wednesday 8 May, 2019

Bodies and identities are always in flux and changing, never stable. My work represents and (re)imagines the possibilities of what we are and what we might become. Each of my works is formed using a number of life models. Their fractured shapes and bodies show us the delusion of separated bodies and truly formed identities, whether that be gender, nationality, or age; just to name a few of the ways we are often separated from each other and siloed into “the individual”.

My work is mixed medium, comprising of acrylic paints and markers, ink pens, and oil pastels. I'm particularly interested in bodies and their shapes, and as such have developed a life drawing business (@lastpeekstudio) as a means to ongoing access to life models and the inspiration they provide.

Space to Consider Absence 

Wednesday 13 March – Wednesday 8 May, 2019

Through drawing, the artist attempts to reconcile the familiar with the unfamiliar. The works contain elements of botanical drawing and abstraction, whilst featuring the white ground of the paper as a tangible metaphor for absence.

'Space to Consider Absence’ began when the artist's older sibling moved to Darwin.  After visiting her sister in Darwin, the artist began making work that combined these two very different landscapes; her own suburban Melbourne garden with tropical Darwin and surrounds. In the title artwork, broad-leafed, ubiquitous garden plant Fatsia Japonica contrasts with strappy Pandanus growing wild along the riverbanks. 

Plants and landscapes are a primary source of inspiration for the artist, with other influences including textile art, etchings and an interest in natural history illustration.
Amy Cornall has a BFA (Honours) (Tapestry). 

She worked professionally as an Artist Weaver at the Australian Tapestry Workshop.

Fireworks 2019
Selection of Portraits

2 April – 13 July

Fireworks 2019 was originally exhibited at Incinerator Gallery, and showcased the art and design of Year 11 and 12 students who live, work or study in Moonee Valley.

Fireworks aims to provide a platform to display our local emerging artists and designers’ work, and to encourage their ongoing development. In this collection of works we celebrate portraiture in multiple forms. These works explore ideas of identity, acceptance, family, entropy and vulnerability.
