  Kubota Fumikaz   Kubota Fumikazu is a Melbourne-based artist. His practice involves painting and drawing, and his works feature precise and finely calculated geometric shapes. In his paintings he uses colourful combinations of simple forms to portray a sense of unity. The worlds created in his paintings are an antidote to an increasingly accelerating society, with all its isolation, frustration and emptiness that can occur. His drawings are mostly intricate hand drawn forms depicting aspects of the human psyche. The works are intended to serve as a stimulus for a consideration of the similarities between objects and human beings in their relationship to the world we inhabit. He recently completed a Graduate Certificate in Visual Art at the Victorian College of the Arts, graduating with First Class Honours in 2013.  www.kubotafumikazu.com

  Jaedon Shin   Born in South Korea in 1959, Shin Jaedon came to Australia in 2007, after graduating from RMIT University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts has spent his time between Seoul and Melbourne presenting regular exhibitions in both cities.   He is driven by deep compassion for ordinary people who are powerless and never truly free - yet living their lives patiently and stoically as a mere speck at an infinitesimal point in time within the landscape of the long course of history. This is equally true of the subject matter of his paintings as it is of socio-political factors in the Korea nation.   www.shinjaedon.com
