‘Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.’

Jeff Woodger, The Wheat Fields,  2003, oil on Canvas

Jeff Woodger

Jeff Woodger’s passion is to paint post romantic landscapes in the classical style. His majestic panoramic works are deeply inspired by many of the seventeenth century greats such as Claude Lorraine and Salvator Rosa. However, while Woodger’s interests lie in tradition and cultural history, he actively reconfigures these majestic places superimposing his own newly revised contemporary reality.

Joan Harris
Joan Harris is a practicing artist and arts educator. She completed a Ph.D. at Monash University, Caufield. Her work centres on transcription, a genre of art devoted to reinventing and recasting works of art that already exists. She draws on the Italian Masters works including Pollaiuolo. One painting of particular interst to Harris is his depiction Faith in a series of The Seven Virtues which is housed in the Uffizi Museum in Florence. Utilising photography and collage, Harris’ response to Pollaiuolo’s Faith reflects her interst in representations of mythological archetypes and symbolism in an historic  context and ways in which this imagery may be represented in contemporary culture. Harris has experience in teaching life drawing, portraiture and working with artists with a disability.
