Jeremy Hynes Award

Jeremy Hynes was a much-loved figure in the Meanjin/Brisbane art scene. In the 1990s, he was known for his audacious, daredevil performance art (lighting fires, smashing mirrors, and confining his audience to taxis) and his experimental video work (with Georgie Pinn, he directed the animated music clip for Regurgitator’s Polyester Girl). In 2000, the IMA presented his […]

Gerwyn Davies: Mirage

“A mirage is an atmospheric illusion, one conjured as immense heat radiates off a scorched earth. It manifests as a shimmering promise of cool water bubbling away on the horizon however, it is a cruel trick of the eye, a lure that draws a thirsty traveller deeper into the peril of the baking desert. A

Natalie Quan Yau Tso: Sea-Skins

Sea-Skins refuses and overwrites Hong Kong’s colonial narrative by tracing the places where sea meets land. These coastlines and borders have been artificially altered—dumping soil onto seas, used as bargaining pieces, neglected when inconvenient and heavily surveilled by land colonisers (british and chinese). Seasalt is a gift between sea and land for Hong Kongers. Natalie

Jason Fitzgerald: Alchemy of Form

Nature’s apparent chaos is ultimately deceptive: oceanic tides are orchestrated by powerful astronomical helixes, and the bee-swarm returns to a hive of mathematical precision. Jason Fitzgerald works on similar principles, creating labyrinthine sculptural reliefs that resonate with the minutiae of nature whilst distilling a universal rhythm. A professional cabinet maker with a compulsive drawing habit,

Angela Su’s documentary-style, speculative-fiction video The Magnificent Levitation Act of Lauren O (2022) addresses levitation as a politically subversive act. It tells the story of the artist’s alter-ego Lauren O—an enigmatic figure who believed she could levitate—and her involvement with Laden Raven, a group of anarchist circus performers.

Belem Lett: Fountain

‘Fountain’ is a new series of works that further my exploration of colour and looping tubular forms across metal surfaces. These oscillating, orbiting trajectories have a relationship to the pathways of celestial bodies, tracing out gravitationally dictated pathways across the universe. The reduction of palette within individual works explores gentler and subtler shifts in light
