The often bright and gestural paintings of German artist Yvonne Robert result from an intuitive approach to colour and composition. Her spontaneity of conception and dynamic gesture is void of complex references and their associated meanings. Instead she is steadfast in her commitment to universal concepts of form, mass, proportion, rhythm and structure, which constitute a common thread in her work. Above all, she is motivated by colour, and her use of it is practiced and studied.
The work of Australian artist Helen Pynor reflects her exploration of philosophical questions relating to the body and our experiences as human beings. She is interested in the experience of living and dying, of being in a body, and often uses wet tissue biology as a part of her work. She draws upon her background in cell and molecular biology, and the visual arts, and combines performance, sculpture, photography, installation and video to represent her examination of the interiority and cultural memory of the body.

Swiss born artist Gabriele Herzog’s works might appear as minimalist and pared-down abstractions upon first glance but the result is anything but simplified. In effect Herzog’s compositions are complex reflections of the artist’s internal ruminations. Her instinctive line-work reflects her fluency with her medium and reveals a confidence that perhaps stems from her training as an illustrator.
