Ashe’s art practice is conceptually based and deeply rooted in exploring the politics of belongingness and the human condition. He creates works that are both poetic and evocative, delving into the emotional intricacies of the human experience and exploring the complexities and nuances of identity, belonging, and marginalisation. Ashe is focused is on extending his installation practice into new forms of expression and territories, by fusing live static performative gestures and the ready-made with various mediums such as photography, sculpture, text, and video. This approach allows him to create dynamic and multi-layered works that engage the viewer on numerous levels, both visually and conceptually. Ashe’s practice questions our broken social systems and reflects on the ongoing search for a sense of belonging in contemporary society, highlighting the vulnerability that comes with it.
Ashe graduated from Sydney College of the Arts with a Bachelor of Visual Arts (Photography) in 1995, and a Masters of Contemporary Art (with distinction) from the Victorian College of the Arts in 2014.

Maria Klingner – Flux Fusion
I am a trade trained jeweller and my work reflects the relationships between jewellery and the human form and it investigates the dynamic connection between adornment, creative expression, daily rituals and embedded memory. The objects are to be worn and enjoyed, uniting the maker, the wearer and the viewer. I offer workshops at my home studio for up to 6 participants and have run workshops in remote locations teaching the basics of jewellery making. Commissions are always welcome and I am passionate about recycling your old items into new wearable pieces that still hold all the emotional and sentimental meaning to the owner.

I paint portraits, landscapes and nature scenes on canvas from photos. I enjoy playing with colour, texture and composition to convey emotion and personality with every piece. Commissions are welcome.
I create large metal sculptures from sheet metal and figurative pieces from scrap metal. No two pieces are the same.
Creating brings me joy and I love being immersed in the process.
I also occasionally facilitate art workshops which are a lot of fun and you get to take home you’re own artwork.
