Liss Finney

Liss Finney (b. 1992, Lutruwita / Tasmania) is a multidisciplinary Australian artist living on Awabakal Country in Newcastle, NSW. Her work spans a variety of media, predominantly working with paint and installation. Her works often interchange between still life and observational painting, to issues of environmental concern, mortality and spirituality. Her process is one of observation, introspection and investigation, revealing intimate moments and shared human experiences through objects, interactions with spaces, and the suggestion of presence through absence. Her most recent body of work employs painting, illustration and sculpture, and uses a coffin motif to explore her multi-generational family history of funeral directing. This work combines remodelled artefacts, found objects, memory and an examination of rituals, to enact an introspection of the western experience of resistance to conversations around death and dying.

She is currently a resident studio artist at The Creator Incubator, and has works with Gallery Rayé, Brisbane.

Di Holdsworth

Cutting up and reassembling plastic, replica toys from the 1960s, Di Holdsworth subverts the notion of the traditional ‘unattainable' music box ballerina. Navigating the social landscape and its paradigms, she undercuts the idea of women as still objects, positioning the female assemblages to ride animals with 1960s plastic cowboys in an acts that are both whimsical and underpinned by desire.
Di Holdsworth holds a BA & BFA from University of Western Sydney and a Master of Creative Arts at the University of Wollongong and was Awarded Australian Post Graduate Award through the University of Wollongong.
