Jasper Knight's industrial, machine inspired images of Sydney harbour are full of vibrant dripping colour and bold geometry. Often incorporating found signage and hardware, he reveals a unique, almost comic-style interpretation of the Sydney landscape - aglow in primary colours reminiscent of artists such as Mondrian and Warhol.
Jasper Knight was born in Sydney in 1978 and remains Sydney based. In 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2010 he was a finalist in the Archibald Prize. Jasper was also exhibited in the Wynne Prize in 2005 and 2006.

"Djunuwiny" - $430 Screenprint - Edition of 80 - Paper size 70 x 100cm
Aboriginal artist Doris Gingingara was born in Maningrida, an Aboriginal community in Arnhem Land, in the Northern Territory. She spent her childhood in the traditional way learning the skills required of the women in her tribal group, Barada.
When she was a little girl she was taken by Mimi spirits and put into a tree to be taught about basket weaving and net making. Mimi are important figures in the culture of Arnhem Land Aborigines and are often depicted in bark paintings as long thin humans.
This place is named Djunuwiny. This is a sacred place to me, this is the place where spirits came to get me when I was a little girl.

"Maritime Totems I" - $3500 Collagraph - Edition of 50 - Paper size 76 x 104cm
Frank Hodgkinson was born in Sydney in 1919. As a young man he worked as a lithographer’s apprentice, then as a commercial artist and illustrator for Sydney and Melbourne newspapers.
The Second World War saw him in the Western Desert of North Africa with the Australian Imperial Forces, campaigning against the Vichy French in Syria and then in Papua New Guinea where he was mentioned in dispatches for conspicuous gallantry. Later, as official war artist, Hodgkinson recorded the landing of allied troops in Borneo.
After the war, Hodgkinson continued his art studies at London’s Central School of Art and in Paris at La Grand Chaumiere. From 1947 he lived and worked in Paris, Florence, Rome, Madrid, Majorca, the USA, Papua New Guinea and Australia.
