ARTISTS

Lewis Argall

Lewis Argall has created story worlds for as long as he can remember using any medium that he can get his hands on. His work includes writing, sculpture, textile design, performance art, and animation. Lewis has what is known as a twice exceptional mind. This means that although he is highly gifted and has strong verbal and perception skills, he deals with significant learning difficulties and can often struggle to process information. These challenges have shaped both the ideas and methods used in his art practice. 

Lucinda Clutterbuck

Lucinda is a fine artist working in wide range of media, an animator and animation producer. 

 

She has made over 20 short animations, including music videos for Australian artists such as INXS, Flotsam Jetsam and Jo Camilleri and the Black Sorrows. Lucinda’s animation for The Machination’s Pressure Sway remains an iconic Australian music video. She wrote and directed the short film Tiga about the fate of the Tasmanian Tiger which continues to be included in Australian animation collections. She was awarded a Filmmakers Fellowship in 2005 by the Australian Film Commission in recognition of her skills and significant body of work. 

Mark Eliott

Mark is an artist whose home base is the craft tradition of glass lamp-work. Sometimes he tries stretching the walls of this house to accommodate different approaches to the medium borrowed from other cultures such as jazz improvisation. At other times, he puts his glass in a back pack and ventures into other terrains such as performance and animation.

 

Mark founded the agar dish in 2008 at Sydney College of the Arts.

Auth Kash Karver

Auth is the more monotonous half of the Karver Collective (with Stella Ktenas Karver).

 

Auth is an interdisciplinary time-based video and, gestural, durational performance artist and considers herself a dissenting voice. Auth pushes citational gesture to breakdown, questioning the flexibility of gesture or language’s stability/instability complex, formations of the “Spectacle”, engages with cyclic and nonlinear systems and is ever curious about anatomical and logos deconstruction. Auth studied at UNSW Art & Design (formally known as COFA) and is a practicing artist in Sydney.

Stella Ktenas Karver

Stella is the more glamorous half of the Karver Collective (with Auth Kash Karver).

 

Stella is a sculptor, and interactive installation and performance artist who humorously interrogates themes of trace and gesture, the dynamics of human interactivity with art, Fordism, absurdity, and the grotesque. She has been exhibited numerously at USYD Verge Gallery (2013-4), North Contemporary Art Space (2016), 107 Projects (2015), Brand X @Tempe Jets (2015), Juanita Nielsen Centre (2014), and Project Contemporary Artspace (2014). Stella was also a finalist for both the 2015 and 2014 Verge Awards: 3D sculpture category.
