Using monotype techniques I record gestural marks on the painted surface of the print making plate that are suggestive of dynamic body movement. Each monoprint is unique because only one image is produced unlike other printing methods that produce multiple, identical images. The dense layers of black oil paint records textures and patterns made with a variety of tools. The calligraphic lines evoke the figure in motion. Raziyeh Mollaei - Movement.

My work combines colour, pattern, textiles and furniture to create vibrant decor for domestic interiors. I have digitally designed patterns to be printed onto fabric and have used these fabrics to reupholster a chair and create soft furnishings. My love for furniture has influenced the direction of my work. I have reinvented an old Danish chair found at an op shop and given it new life. Johanna Stone - Major Mitchell.

Speak – say something in order to convey information or to express a feeling. For centuries women were expected to play the role of mother and housewife with limited rights. My work juxtaposes empowering quotes from famous women in history with the contemporary, suburban housewife. The quotes themselves are hand cut into lino and embossed onto paper through a printmaking process making them visible without the use of ink, encouraging the viewer to a have a closer look.

This series of portraits are drawn in Indian ink on watercolour paper. Each portrait shows a victim in Australia or overseas. In the first semester of this year I chose to draw victims of serial killers, focusing on sets of three or more people that they murdered. In the second semester I decided to broaden the topic to include victims of deadly crime within Australia, rather than just victims of serial killers. Claire Wiedemann - In Memorium.

I investigate the positive and negative ways genetics manifest in family histories. My work revolves around the idea of legacy, the trace a person leaves behind, the history of a life. The inter-generational facial features that identify kin are examined. As a woman I focus on the traditionally ignored half of the family tree – the mother’s side. My drawings are an obsessive exercise in portraiture, exploring the narratives underlying and linking this female lineage. Bronwyn Watson - Legacy

The search for authenticity has led me to observing and documenting the body as a repository of history. This has led me to inquire into my greying hair as a validation of the authentic self, and the skin as an index to the history that lies beneath. The process of mourning has travelled in parallel with this inquiry.  Yvonne Torrico - My Hair, My Skin, My Body

From childhood I have always had an interest in fantasy, fiction and Surrealism. I was always told bedtime stories of myths and legends which made a lasting impression on the way I perceived reality as a child. Discovering that the reality I had created for myself was an extension of my imagination has resulted in a creative enquiry into distorted or warped perceptions of reality. Holly Schneider - Aetherea.

My mother married in 1956. The 1950s were a time of increasing prosperity in Australia as society reclaimed stability after the Second World War. Australia’s cultural identity, its symbols and expression were unashamedly grafted from a British heritage, and this period saw an attempt to further cultivate a ‘civilized’ foreign aesthetic. This was a time preceding modern contraception when sexuality and personal expression were formalized, repressed and restrained.  Catherine Saniga…

I have always found it difficult to express feelings; often viewing them as personal and extremely private, and myself as weak if I exposed them publicly. This is a visual exploration of selfidentity, drawing out what I have kept hidden beneath the surface. My paintings contrast hard and brittle wood with the softness and fluidity of ink to symbolise human frailty. Amy Ross - Girl 1-4.

Influenced by historical Eastern pictorial scriptures, I have combined elements of their ancient story telling techniques to produce a modern interpretation of everyday life in Western society. In Asian culture the text is written and read from right to left and my narratives appropriate this method. Wayan Robin - Shoujo School Life.
