Abby Seymour

We were stoked to have a chat with talented Melbourne jewellery designer Abby Seymour. We’ve been following her work for the last couple of years and we’re currently obsessing over her Australis collection which is inspired by the natural beauty of the Australian bush. Abby has seamlessly merged her signature geometry and fine detail with natural shapes and textures and the result is stunning. One of our favourite things about Abby Seymour is her commitment to environmental sustainability and ethical labour practice which we hope means we’ll continue to see her work for many years to come!

Derek Swalwell

In anticipation of his upcoming exhibition at Modern Times, we were delighted to have the chance to catch up with Derek Swalwell to discuss his style of photography, creative process and the ideas behind his current series Outdistance.

Outdistance is a gorgeous showcase of some of Italy’s most iconic brutalist architecture as told through Derek’s distinctive, crisp and rich style. Derek takes a loving and considered look at the works of renowned architects Carlo Scarpa, Aldo Rossi and Carlo Aymonino, while exploring how the structures sit within and are affected by their surroundings. We absolutely love this series, you can get lost in the detail of each image and we would highly recommend that you check it out.

Kate Ballis

This July, acclaimed Melbourne-based photographer Kate Ballis will unveil a breathtaking body of work titled Glace Noir at Darlinghurst’s Black Eye Gallery, signalling her first Sydney showcase. Shot using the classic Hollywood ‘day for night’ technique, the austerely elegant works depict the Perito Moreno glacier in Argentina from varying angles, unearthing a series of ambiguous landscapes that play on light, tone, texture and scale. The photographs capture a serene stillness in time and space while simultaneously revealing a glacial underworld heaving with life force.

The dark, inky tones juxtaposed with puddles of celestial blues exude an almost intergalactic aesthetic. Invoking a sense of ambiguity as to the time and place of each photo, the artist emphasises the notion of day as night and night as day with interchangeable light that outlines mystery and intrigue in each depiction.
