Robert Hirschmann is an Australian visual artist who was born in Narembeen WA in 1968. He studied at Liverpool Tafe Sydney and at the National Art School. Hirschmann is an abstract landscape painter and he has held several solo shows and participated in numerous group exhibitions, including at the King Street Gallery and at the Watters Gallery.
Hirschmann’s works have been described as explosive. Often relying on the build up of oil paint into a dense mass on the canvas, his picture seems to emanate light when such volcanic encrustations might be expected to be as inert as stone.

Fiona Edmeades completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts at the National Art School in Sydney in 2009. Since that time her work has been exhibited in many group and solo shows. In 2009 she won the Parkers Fine Art supplies award at the National Art School and in 2010 the ArtStart Grant from the Australia Council for the Arts. Fiona’s work is held in the Art Gallery of New South Wales collection [Research Library].
Fiona has stated that her “interests lie within the experience of the everyday, the simple and often repetitive elements of everyday life through which we are impelled to live out the complex nature of our human existence.”
The reclaimed materials that she uses in her sculptures and the element of repetition, are key elements through which she forms her visual language.
