Ashley D Bird Ashley Bird is a Tasmanian based interdisciplinary visual artist. The focus of his work and research explores ideas of memory and nostalgia that emotionally connect people to objects, that within them hold past moments and carefree interactions with family and place. The collection and archive of these objects therefore standing in for the past memory, motivating an obsessive desire to inshrine and valorise past relics (especially toys) to keep memories from being lost. www.ashleydbird.com

Rushdi Anwar Rushdi Anwar is a Melbourne-based artist originally from Kurdistan. His installation, sculptures, painting, photo-painting, and video works often reflect on the socio-political issues of Kurdistan, Iraq and The Middle East. Exploring these issues through an investigation of form conditions, material vocabularies and processes, his works reference the social and political unrest in his home country and his Kurdish heritage, but they also have a broader message and talk to us of care, attention and even redemption through art. He was educated in Kurdistan and Australia studying at the Institute of Kirkuk, Enmore Design Centre / Sydney Institute- Sydney. He holds a Master of Fine Art (MFA) 2010 and a Doctorate of Philosophy Art (PhD) 2016, in the School of Art in RMIT University, Melbourne, Australia.  www.rushdi.com.au

 Sarah Randall Randall's studio practice explores the genre of still life painting, through the medium of oil paint on wood. The objects she chooses to render are objects that sit quietly in the world, overlooked in the business of our daily life. The way we relate to these objects is in one way how we relate to each other. In the moments of their use, these objects give us space for reflection and communication, drawing people together to the table. As such, her body of work examines the relationship between people (the family) and their objects (tableware). These painted objects act as a metaphor for the individual and speak collectively to the notion of communion. Randall completed a Bachelor of Creative Arts in Wollongong in 2013, a Master of Fine Arts at RMIT in 2015 and a Grad Certificate of Arts in Art History at the University of Melbourne in 2016. She has exhibited in NSW and Melbourne since 2008, in 2013 she was awarded the $1000 William Fletcher Foundation Grant and awarded the RMIT Community Award in 2015 coinciding with her Masters.  www.sarahrandallartist.weebly.com
