Resident Artist Diana Jackson


Sculptural Ceramics and Jewellery

The tension between nature vs. Technology or organic vs. Geometric are themes that come up most often in my artwork. I embrace the idea of allowing the processes to inform my artwork sometimes utilizing calculated methods and precision building techniques to create precise geometric forms d sometimes using free flowing spontaneous gesture to fabricate organic forms. When these working methods come together harmoniously in one piece I feel a sense of balance and peace.

The Stairwell gallery will be open by chance or appointment April to December.


Guest Artist Leah Hicks

Abstract Acrylic Painting

Living in a compelling world of contrast, texture and colour. I keep driven by always challenging myself. I attempt to create a multidimensional world through a two dimensional stage. As a result I produce depth and emotion in each piece. “Push into chaos and refine what you find.”

Leah’s work will be on display from April 1st to May 31st.
