Kate Middleweek is a choreographer, educator, writer and mother. Her inspiration is human story and her intention is to move, provoke and to provide a space for reflection. This is done through movement, stillness, the body, objects and space. Her aesthetic lends itself towards blending the rawness of live improvisation with the precision of the choreographed. Her ongoing visual obsession is with placing and framing objects that are rich in metaphor.

Xenia Williams

Xenia Williams’ ideas are inspired by studying the form, shapes and purpose of animals and nature, taking on their foundations and capturing the movement of life. Researching her subjects and items of interest, Xenia goes through the process of understanding how they move and look, after which she takes apart those learnings to create something new, representing emotion entwined with their natural move, expressing it in a spontaneous, yet bound piece through the use of mixed media and colour. Xenia's goal is to inspire people to look more carefully, to study the details, and to form their own interpretations.

Brooke Van Der Linden

Brooke is currently exploring ideas about kitsch, nostalgia and memory. Specifically, how such notions can be evoked through collage and craft techniques. Her current obsession is collecting vintage craft books and what they can represent; the potential to make something, without any special talent, training or equipment.

Brooke is a current Artist in Residence at the Artists Guild Gallery.

I found the Artists Guild at the perfect time. I was able to exhibit a body of work in the member space that would have otherwise gone unseen. Unashamedly, it was my first time nailing into a wall and once it was all over, returning it to its original condition, it was a basic skill that University had failed to provide me! Thanks to the Artists Guild’s support I no longer have any anxieties about exhibiting my work. I spent my time gallery sitting humbled and inspired by the space and more importantly, making art. From the start of July I have had my little studio set up in the space which has been a dream come true.

Annie Taylor

Annie Taylor studied printmaking at the Victorian College of the Arts. Her abstract collages use grids, shapes and patterns to evoke her love of the natural world and concern for our position within it. She dissects and reassembles a diverse range of hand-printed, -painted and vintage papers to construct these ruminations on life, reflecting the push and pull of joy and despair for our environment and the human condition, as well as herself. Intimacy is her intent and imperfection is her delight.

Stephanie Gobor, Yellow Yarra, 2018, Inkjet print on handmade paper

Hi There! I’m Steph, Melbourne based artist and explorer. My art practice is a combination of hiking, photo taking, painting, printing, collaging and paper making. I wander about the trails seeking trends in, beauty and emotive experience to define the environment. I have explored what I feel are the most defining features of a landscape which are the foreground, background and skyline. By deconstructing and reassembling layers my intention is to give the viewer a new perspective and way of experiencing landscapes.
