“Dreams/Return to Reality” By Luke Hunter
Details: 70cm x 50cm (framed), Acrylic on Canvas
Price:
$450/Sold
Statement: In this piece I’ve tried to capture how it feels for my self during an anxiety attack. During an anxiety attack, my memories start to fade and I become a shell of a human. I find that everything I know about myself or the people around me becomes a blur, tunnel vision kicks in and everything becomes dark. My mind becomes foggy and I need to retrace my thought process to become the person I was before the anxiety attack happened.

“I Should Have Been Better” By Luke Hunter
Details: 70cm x 50cm (framed), Acrylic on Canvas
Price:
$450
Statement:
This art piece is about a time in my life that lasted several months where I was denying that I needed help, trying to fight a battle in my own head; telling myself that I was fine. This happened during an insanely testing time for my partner, if only I recognised and accepted I needed help, I could have been a better support for my partner. I owe a lot to my partner to be strong enough to help me when she was going through a challenging time.

“It's Back” By Luke Hunter
Details: 70cm x 50cm (framed), Acrylic on Canvas
Price:
$450
Statement: After a couple of months of seeing a psychologist, I was able to work on ways to recognise my anxiety: I would know how to notice a change in my natural thought process. I began to notice that my thoughts would become darker than usual and I had the tools to understand these responses and take ownership of them. Recognising how my body and mind would act when I was having anxiety problems was a great way to become familiar with anxiety. In this sense I began to develop control of my anxious reactions.

"Vulnerable" By Bel Short
Details: Two colour linocut on archival paper: 30.4 x 46.4 cm framed, artist’s proof.
Price: $150 framed
Statement: Loosely inspired by William Kentridge’s Ubu drawing (drawing man) and Ubu drawing (cartographer) (1997), this piece illustrates the vulnerability of the artist. To be an artist is to bare your soul, with no control over how others will perceive it. It is both frightening and exhilarating.

"sensitivity is strength" By Bel Short
Details: inkjet print of water-soluble graphite painting on acid free paper, 30.3 x 38 cm framed.
Price: $50 framed
Statement: I am a highly sensitive person. I get overwhelmed when too many things are happening, pain affects me more than most, and I’m easily exhausted from being out in the world. Being so sensitive can feel like a burden, but I try to see it as a strength: I’m very receptive to others’ emotions, I gain joy from little details in nature, and I have a rich imagination. This piece is a small celebration of sensitivity and all the joys it can bring.

"waves" By Bel Short
Details: drypoint on Magnani Pescia paper, 51 x 20.8 cm framed, artist’s proof.
Price: $150 framed
Statement: (TW: Anxiety and panic attacks)
This piece is based on something I wrote in the aftermath of a panic attack, to express how overpowering it feels to have one. When I’m panicking, my brain tells me that all my fears are true and that I’ll feel that way forever. However, the waves pass, as they always do, and I remain afloat.

"Dreamtime Stories" By Cecelia Kluge
Details: 50 x 75cm, Acrylic on Canvas
Price: $100
Statement: There are many stories but I chose only three. If you do an internet search you can read the whole story. This is my interpretation of the three stories.
The Rainbow Serpent:
Australia was flat, dry and empty. The Rainbow Serpent made all the hills, mountains, rivers, billabongs, desert as well as flora and fauna. He made it very colourful. Then he woke all the Australian animals.
Tiddalick the Frog:
He drank all the water until all was gone. The other animals had no water in the rivers and billabongs so they decided to tickle him so the water could come out eventually they succeeded.
Pondi/Ponde:
The Murray Cod was pursued so made the Murray River; it wove itself down from Queensland to the Murray River mouth. Ponde/Pondi created the cliffs and the width of the river changing directions often as he swam.
