Featured Studio Artists
Michelle Perrett has been awarded the Northern Beaches Council and Eramboo Artist Environment six month residency. Michelle works in the medium of porcelain sculpture and installation. During her time as artist in residence Michelle will be researching threatened plant species and creating a series of sculptural works in porcelain. Her larger than life flower sculptures symbolize the importance of the plant species and aim to express their mysticism or spirituality. She is interested in threatened species and researches native plants and eco systems. The porcelain flowers and their grand structures are oversized to evoke their alchemical qualities of escape and metamorphosis. Having a background as a registered nurse Michelle has previously made work about hospitals, maternity and women’s histories.
Working in traditional watercolour and contemporary
mixed media techniques, Ingrid’s practice centres around exploring intrinsic
responses to landscape.
Described as both nostalgic and whimsical, her work draws details in and out of focus from observations and recollections of places both lost and yearned for. Her narrative examines innate connections to terrain and storylines, largely informed by responses to her surroundings and her own history.
Predominantly self-taught, Ingrid works in a studio space at Eramboo, surrounded by National Park and with an abundance of lively wildlife neighbours. This quintessentially Australian location presses into her studio and her artworks, mingling with the collected memories and inspiration from her travels and her connection to rural Australia.
Cecile is one of the latest artists to join
the Studio Artists at Eramboo. Cecile creates 'green art' from her unique
handmade varnished paper beads. She designs original and unique jewellery and
states "I finally found the right form of creative expression." We
look forward to seeing Cecile's creativity flourish and thrive at Eramboo.
