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.

I explore notions of hybridity through sculpture, ceramics, painting, installation and moving image. I am interested in the abject, hybrid and monstrous body. My work delves into the body as material, polyphonic voice and relational multiplicities embedded in cultural and environmental ecosystems. In these times of ecological crisis, I seek to rupture perceptions of a distinct individual self, and question notions of the defined. Unearthing obscured stories, my practice provokes conversation about cultural, political, and societal transformation.
Through materials and process, I reach into the mythologies and symbolic languages of my mixed eastern and western cultural heritage to explore transformation. Drawing on science, ecology and imagination, I incorporate personal biographies and cross-cultural mythologies of decay, ritual and regeneration into chimeric conglomerations and hybrid beings. With my mixed Anglo-Indian-Australian and culturally Deaf heritages, as a hearing, bilingual (Auslan-English) artist, I consider how hyphenated ways of being may queer dominant paradigms and give rise to potential new narratives.
I create commissioned private and public artwork, produce exhibitions and offer writing services.
Pinky is a bubbly local artist who enjoys delivery workshops to her community based on her broad range of artistic practices. She is an Illustrator, Potter and textile artist who finds joy in combining mediums and techniques to create interesting works with sustainability always in her mind. Harnessing botanical colour across a range of mediums is also a continuous theme in her work. Pinky is a little Neuro-spicy and really loves to deliver artistic projects that benefit students and community members with disabilities. Currently, her time is divided neatly between creating ceramics in her home studio, teaching creative workshops and illustration work.
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.
Go to my Facebook or Insta pages at Rachel Braybon Art to check out my body of work.
Please contact me via social media if you wish to discuss a commission piece or be part of my next workshop.

My purpose built house on the hill in East Albury is a private space in which I make art but it also doubles as my own studio and gallery. Living here has been inspirational. Beautiful views of the hills, sunsets, wide horizon, sky, weather and seasonal changes have inspired my art making. Not only paintings, I have been creating sculptures, mosaics and garden.
Variety of oil, gauche and reverse oil on glass paintings are on permanent display. Some larger artworks can also be made available for viewing.
My body of artistic work comprises paintings and sculptures inspired by my personal life experiences, my observations of people and landscapes.
During my 4 year of formal art education in Ljubljana, the historic capital of Slovenia, I studied Art History and Art in all different forms. As part of my study I attended many art exhibitions and galleries in Europe. I also pursued more art education after arrival in Australia and attained a Diploma in Visual Arts.
In Australia, I commenced a career in commercial art. After settling down to a family life in Albury-Wodonga, I continued my career in graphic art, painting and later teaching art at a Secondary College, TAFE and private tuitions. I have regularly attended international artist’s retreats in Slovenia and I exhibit regularly in solo and group art shows.
I collected numerous awards and have held 30 solo exhibitions, 5 internationally. Many of my art works can be found in public and private collections in Australia and other countries: England, Germany, Austria, Italy, Greece, Slovenia, Croatia, Poland, Sweden, Finland, Ireland, USA and Bulgaria.
