While the notion of absolute beauty occupies an unyielding position in the traditions painting and sculpture, today another sense of beauty dominates and is far more flexible and attainable from that of several centuries ago. In western popular culture the entertainment and fashion industries have for many decades lead the way. They have done this by controlling and influencing clothing, hairstyle and cosmetics. Just as aesthetics and beauty were once considered inflexible, artists today explore concepts that are about changes in perception of beauty and the importance of being responsive to ‘their’ times.

In her new body of work, Holly Shepheard investigates the way new constructions of beauty might be formed by using molecular components or biological structures to represent shifting standards of what constitutes beauty. She creates visceral layers of fluid imagery, combines them with her knowledge of the chemistry of cosmetics and proposes new ways to examine alternative forms of beauty.

Maree Wilson’s works evoke water, atmospheric disturbance and erosion. Holes are gouged and drilled through smooth polished layers of ground and subtle washes of paint, disrupting the painted surface and moving the works from abstracted landscapes to self-reflexive studies of surface and the process of making. Wilson asks the viewer to consider the concept of place, and where we are in that place as inseparable.
