Rita has an Arts Degree from Melbourne University, she lives and works in Perth, West Australia. As an artist, she is working with clay and mixed media. For this project, she has concentrated on ceramic sculpture. The figures focus on the history and the myths of the First World War. Rita is examining the links between the Australian and French soldiers, who fought a hundred years ago in the North of France.
David Packer’s sculptures and works on paper are questioning our preconceived ideas about the world through a visual inspection integrating two peculiar interests: industry and natural world. The sculptures represent what, at first sight, seems to be everyday life elements, familiar objects, such as bears. David was born in the United Kingdom and has been living in New York for thirty years, where he works as an artist.
