break the rules
March 3 - March 25 2018
Art has rules? Well no one told these artists. They're pushing the boundaries, doing the unexpected and taking us to new places. Does it confuse you? Does it make you feel uncomfortable? Good. We want to challenge your expectations, get you thinking and maybe even start some conversations.
Sabrina has always had an artistic and creative mind. She attended art classes throughout her school years and experimented with various mediums. She then studied Fine Arts and completed a Bachelor of Design (Fashion) at Otago Polytechnic, Dunedin, New Zealand.
Sabrina is based in Melbourne and currently exercises her creative flair in a professional capacity as a visual merchandiser. She picks up her paint brushes (and anything else that will make a mark!) to experiment with colour and texture as often as possible. Her paintings and photography are inspired by a fascination with reflections and nature and seek to capture the movement and
colour of water and sky.

Orlando Mee is a digital artist experimenting with the distortion and recombination of graphic data.
His images are edited progressively over multiple iterations, using a combination of graphics software, scripts, apps, and old-school glitch art processes.
Although he has little control over the changes taking place, each new iteration enables him to 'tease out' the desirable aspects - the textures, colours and structures. He will often slice an image into pieces, reassembling it differently before returning it back into the process.
The original image is eventually obliterated, and a strange new form begins to emerge from the chaos.
Orlando’s works contain alien faces, esoteric glyphs, psychedelic fractals and kaleidoscopic mandalas. He never knows quite what the final product will look like, but that's part of the fun.
