Brooke Ferguson is a Brisbane based artist. Ferguson completed her Bachelor of Fine Art (in Visual Art) with Honours at the Queensland University of Technology in 2011. Working across different media, recent projects take the form of drawings, installation, sound and collaboration. Her process-based practice reflects a continued interest in simple materials, activities and gestures to generate potential artworks. Marcel Duchamp’s concept of Infra-mince, with its concern for incidental phenomenon and unquantifiable boundaries, provides a model for Ferguson’s approach to media. Brooke has been active in Brisbane’s Artist-Run Initiative scene, having exhibited with No Frills*, inbetweenspaces and Boxcopy. She is Metro Arts 2011 Artist in Residence.
Eve Roleston is a Gold Coast based artist whose work explores and links her multifaceted identity with the physical and perceptual world. And relates intimate images to broader social and cultural issues including gender, identity and relationships with dolphins in today’s society. Her artistic language operates at a certain level of symbolic abstraction in order to evoke universal human experiences from specific marine encounters. Eeeeewwwwwssssppphhhhhh!
