About Adam Craemer

In Adam Craemer's work, the world of graffiti and street art is combined with an interest in the female form to create paintings that are at once sharp, realistic portraits and dynamic experiments in color, rhythm and texture. "My aim," he says, "is to push this combination as far as possible without losing the essence and emotional connection with the portrait image." Once Craemer selects the image of a subject that he wants to use, he puts down layers of color on the canvas, applying aerosol paints, oils, acrylics and paste to create a densely textured web of lines and patterns. He then transfers the portrait image to the work, resulting in complex, multi-layered compositions.

The artist also makes dynamic abstract images that incorporate some of the techniques he employs in his portraits. With a strong eye for the emotional and dynamic possibilities unleashed by color juxtapositions, he captures the feeling of air, water and land with a subtle skill that also carries a powerful emotional force. Born in Durban, South Africa, Craemer now lives and works in Western Australia.

About Clare Page

Some years ago, a gift redefined Clare Page. The present, a camera, was for her a form of rebirth, a reintroduction to the world. Now mentored by two of Australia's leading nature photographers, Clare captures the natural world in all of its magnificent hues. Working outdoors, she must often respond to unique light conditions, manipulating shutter speed and applying filters. Clare shoots with a 50-megapixel camera, targeting the gorgeous Australian wilderness and spectacular South Island, New Zealand scenery.

In the winter months, Clare travels country roads. Her reason for doing so is twofold. First, there is the notable absence of reptiles; second, there is fog. She enjoys the latter's inconsistency, its mysteriousness, the way the sun pierces through it. Often she'll find herself sitting in her car, eating breakfast by lantern light, watching the fog ebb and flow. Beyond its simple beauty, the natural world offers valuable lessons for Clare. "Life is an inspirational teacher," she says. "When I experience seasons of opposition, I thrive." A provisional member of Australian Institute of Professional Photography and provisional member of New Zealand Institute of Professional Photography, Clare lives and works in South Island, New Zealand.

Jac Fear

Jac Fear paints as a tribute to the raw power of the Australian landscape, exposing both beauty and fragility. Laced throughout his work are symbols"”at times hidden beneath layers of paint"”that connect multiple pieces, telling a story larger than any given canvas. Fear places his work outside where the acrylics bake in hot sunlight, allowing the paint to crack like dry earth. After a week, he revisits the canvas with oil and spray paint, adding further dimension to his work. Using hand cut stencils to depict trees and bushes, Fear evokes Paleolithic cave paintings while creating a consistency between pieces.

Fear often references moments from his own life"”which he terms "lived events""”in his work. With these autobiographical flashes, Fear hopes to convey a form of emotional blueprint for the viewer to connect with. This sense of connection is fundamental to art, he believes. "Art is the silent music," he says. "It is there, in the present, something you can't help but notice."

Jac Fear lives and works in Perth, Western Australia.
