Artwork | The Egret is captured on Belgian linen with handmade paint and pure pigments.

Bec Juniper
By Association | POA
Mixed media on canvas

Artist | "These paintings are imaginary landscapes. I work on the horizontal with a free-forming experimentation; every step is a response to the previous layer of events. In this way, I locate myself outside of idea-based decision making, where I respond element by element and moment by moment. In this current series, I continue to imagine realism in this sense. My evolution as a landscape painter is more and more about removing the heavy presence of the human hand."
Artwork | By Association is a collective depicting the artist's response to the Australian landscape through instinctual exploration techniques, employing a range of raw and natural media.

Jarrah crotch wood oil finish, 2300x990x740mm

Artwork | Nature provided a uniquely shaped piece of jarrah crotch wood, which led the way for this light and organically shaped bespoke writing table.

Helen Norton
The Looking Glasses | POA
Acrylic on canvas, 304x122cm

Artist | Highly acclaimed WA artist Helen Norton has recently made a shift from her recognisable narrative style to stripping it all down and painting from a place of inner comfort.
