Siv Grava

27 May - 26 June 2022

South Australian artist Siv Grava is known to create rich portraits and vivid interpretations of the Australian landscape.

Her work has evolved pictorially a number of times. Her interest lies primarily with colour, exploring the juxtaposition of line and tone and possibilities within the visual field. Conceptually, her paintings bring together elements of duality, fragmentariness, impermanence and perception.

Silvio Apponyi

27 May - 26 June 2022

Silvio Apponyi is an Australian sculptor based in Balhannah in the Adelaide Hills, South Australia. Silvio has been sculpting for around 40 years. His style has developed over these years, from entirely abstract creations still used in fine details and larger pieces, to an astonishing level of detail and realism, visible in the images on this website. His main inspiration is Australian fauna, and he hopes to draw attention to these unique and often endangered species. In his self built studio Silvio creates his sculptures in a variety of media, primarily wood, Australian granites & marbles and bronze. His scupltures range from delicate ‘Netsuke’ style pieces to massive public granite works.

Born in Milan, Italy, Cristina Metelli studied at art school as a teenager before moving to Adelaide, Australia where she continued her artistic education earning a Bachelors of Visual Arts (Honours) from Adelaide Central School of Art.

Her art practice is based on painting and sculpture, often inspired by the diversity and beauty of nature, occasionally bringing to public attention pressing environmental issues.

Cristina’s artworks are extensively exhibited and collected throughout Australia and overseas.

“Each of my paintings begins with a walk in nature, and is an expression of the experience felt in each unique location. Walking in nature is for me both healing and uplifting, reflecting a deep connection to place. The restorative effect of being outdoors starts my creative process and sustains it throughout the making of each painting.

’Colours of Nature: Hills to Coast’ is expressing my connection to places in nature that I have been drawn to in the past year. From the nurturing Adelaide Hills to the stunning coastline, I have endeavoured to express my personal experience of these unique natural landscapes, as in my usual painting process, reinstating a sense of wellbeing, balance, and expressing a feeling of belonging.”

Kati Thamo

22 April - 22 May 2022

The telling of tales has always been integral to Western Australian artist Kati Thamo, and she draws on personal stories and incidents along with both lesser and grander narratives to devise a form of visual fable. Using a cast of characters including animals and objects, her storylines suggest the mystery, frailty, hopefulness and anxiety of life. She says, ‘I think of my images as small theatre settings where various dramas are enacted’.

More recently, Kati has been exploring the natural world, looking at ways to depict the fragility and complexity of natural ecosystems, and of the human relationship to nature.
