The gallery is very pleased to welcome two new artists to its stable in 2012. Both JESSICA GERON and CARLA HANANIAH will have solo shows later this year.
JESSICA GERON has a Masters of Fine Arts in Painting from the College of Fine Arts at the University of New South Wales. She and her family have recently relocated from Sydney to Brisbane and her latest body of work is based around themes of living in a new urban environment. Jessica’s solo show is in June.

CARLA HANANIAH is the 2011 recipient of the Blake Prize Coburn Emerging Artist Award. She is currently researching a Masters at Sydney’s College Of Fine Arts. Her research responds to a classic theme in art history of man’s relationship with nature through a series of tumultuous and poetic landscape paintings that also have significant contemporary relevance for the threat of global warming and environmental degradation.
