” My work is interested in the phenomenon of making memories. By constructing scopes that project future nostalgias, my paintings aim to channel a mundane hedonism, fueled by a cloud of expectations and threat of the ordinary. In drawing from the traditions of both the grand portrait and the DIY genre of decorative pattern painting, the paintings start in a place of ‘pretty’, and, in examining the subjects’ dysfunctional relationship with their environment, become increasingly violated through the use of garish color, rough texture, and a surface sediment of opulent, store-bought, celebratory trash. Referencing holiday photographs, family portraits, and the materiality of disposable decor, my paintings attempt to create expected histories.” – Celeste Rapone

Jason Haggerty is a visual artist based out of the Gold Coast currently completing his Bachelor Degree in Digital Media, majoring in Fine Art and Art Theory at Queensland College of Art. The central concern of his research is the growth and rapid evolution of cyberspace, the ways in which intense streams of information are shifting the nature of human interaction, concepts of self, popular culture, social networks, advertising, and the duality of online and offline presence and the overlapping of online content into real life. Utilising technology and new medias such as motion and body tracking, video, computer software, audio synthesisers and 3D modelling/printing, Jason’s practice challenges the conceived notions of art making, with installations and digital sculptures that place the viewer’s experience as paramount. With an appreciation for art practice, art theory and curatorship, Jason has worked closely with Griffith University’s White Box Gallery and Jugglers Artspace to curate and install various exhibitions, and also completed an internship at The Walls Gallery at Rabbit+Cocoon.

Some say that artist Chris Maynard is slightly feather-obsessed. “It’s true,” he says, “my work with feathers gives me a satisfying perch from which to view the world.” He only has time to turn a small portion of his ideas, which fill many notebooks, into feather designs. His favorite tools are the tiny eye surgery scissors, forceps, and magnifying glasses passed down through his family.
