Robert McCubbin works with abstract sculptural forms, his work combines an exploration of contemporary visual culture and technology with art-historical references. The resultant 'fusion' pieces are constructed from everyday materials.
Set at a human scale Robert explores colour, form and textural arrangements, utilizing collage and assemblage techniques in their construction.
Outside In (Liminal Space), 2017 by Peter Gudynas
Peter Gudynas is a visual artist best known for his graphic art and creative photography. Much of his recent fine art photographic work envisions landscapes and environments notable for the absence of human presence, yet at the same time strangely haunted by that presence and the detritus humankind leaves behind in the wake of social, industrial and technological progress.
