Australian DreamBy Lily Rose Dambelli
The unique and diverse flora found on this continent is not stereotypically soft, feminine and manicured; like a common English Rose. Instead, wild and slightly eerie. Here, a Kangaroo Paw bloom is entangled with a Parsons Band Orchid, a visual comparison that honours the individuality of the Australian aesthetic.
SustainabilityBy Mark Gerada
Everything we use in our homes comes from somewhere. Yet, everything can be designed and used in a way that minimises the footprint we leave. We hear talk about this all the time, but do we really stop and think about what this actually means?
In this drawing, I wanted to create a complete awareness picture of where all building materials and contents come from and how they are transported to a building site. It encourages us to think of buildings as an integral part of the landscape. For example, if we are using timber for construction, we should be replacing it as we use it.
AcaciaBy Annie Everingham
I see the world in its most embryonic state, the conflict between nature’s fragility and endurance with links between life and death; tranquillity and terror; beauty and ugliness. My work is crafted around childhoods spent in the country, a love for colour and a deep affection for the native flora of the Australian bush.

"Using waste to make art is an amazing transformation to me. Recycling materials creates a need for a different way of thinking about a painting.”
