About the Artists
Bec Stevens’ practice is a spatial investigation involving observation and activation. She has exhibited regularly since 1999 and completed a combined degree in Fine Arts and Architecture through the University of Tasmania. Bec is interested in the capacity of creative practice to influence our spatial awareness particularly in terms of our wellbeing within the built environment we create for ourselves. Her experience as an artist is diverse: exhibiting and producing artworks for gallery contexts and public space, facilitating and assisting other practicioners’ creative outcomes; a working board member of artist run initatives; managing a commercial gallery; running a pop-up community centre as part of the Swiss artist Christoph Buchel’s Southdale project at MONA; running workshops with children at MAC; curating exhibitions; assisting in art workshops for mentally disabled artists at Arts project and through Cosmos (currently Monasic); MoMA market stalls raising funds for women’s causes, and sitting on the Steering Committee for the Creative Conections Project which put artists working with children on residencies in Tasmania’s Child and Family Centres.
Sheree Martin unravelling process of creating is integral to her artistic practice. Sheree’s passion for igniting imagination, whilst nurturing creativity and enhancing health and wellbeing was influenced and shaped at New Zealand School of Creativity and Art. Sheree utilises analogue and digital photographic processes to play and interweave her curiosities in shifting light and visual perception with intentions of mindfulness and integrity that culminate in works that strive to critique conventions of photography with a sense of place. Sheree hopes to share the joy and richness of engaging in ‘the process’ through her own arts practice and within her community arts and education work.
