ANGELA YUEN

Is a young and talented artist currently living in Hong Kong. Her sculptures represent imaginary Hong Kong skylines. She creates installations by hanging her pieces so they can cast a shadow of the skyline onto the wall. Yuen has collected objects and crafts found in the Yau Me Tei / Kowloon district from as many locals and family run stores as she could possibly find. Her work includes items like plastic toys, as they represent a joyous reminder of what has remained in the district. Each and every object portrays both struggle and self reliance of Hong Kong trades and its people.

MICHAEL EDEN


Michael Eden is a maker whose work sits at the intersection of craft, design and art, exploring contemporary themes through the redesign of historical, culturally familiar objects utilising digital manufacturing and materials.Through this he investigates the relationship between hand and digital tools.  He is particularly interested in how the tacit knowledge and sensibility to the 3 dimensional object, developed through extended ceramic practice can affect and influence the approach to the creation of objects using digital technology.

Sophie Ryder

Sophie Ryder was born in London, England, in 1963. During her childhood, her French mother travelled to Provence in the south of France where the family spent the entire summer.  She studied Combined Arts at the Royal Academy of Arts where, while obtaining her diploma in painting, she was encouraged by fellow artist to develop her sculpture. Inspired by Picasso, Goya and Henry Moore, she famously developed the Lady Hare as a counterpart to Ancient Greek mythology’s Minotaur. 

Sophie Ryder’s world is one of mystical creatures, animals and hybrid beings made from sawdust, wet plaster, old machine parts and toys, weld joins and angle grinders, wire ‘pancakes’, torn scraps of paper, charcoal sticks and acid baths.

Bronwyn Joy Oliver (22 February 1959 – 11 July 2006) was an Australian sculptor who worked primarily in metal

Oliver was not one to intellectualise her creativity: she preferred to talk about the process of creating her artworks rather than their meanings.[4] Asked about how she approached her art, she stated:

My work is about structure and order. It is a pursuit of a kind of logic: a formal, sculptural logic and poetic logic. It is a conceptual and physical process of building and taking away at the same time. I set out to strip the ideas and associations down to (physically and metaphorically) just the bones, exposing the life still held inside
