Teelah George (Born in Perth, 1984) creates meticulously hand-embroidered textiles, using subtle and richly hued threads, densely woven in a palette ranging from deep cobalt blue to vibrant amber. George’s works are framed by bronze supports, adorned with impressions of the artists’ touch, with a burnished finish that appears as visibly handcrafted as the embroidered fabric. Toppling historical ideas of gender, permanence and monumentality, George’s process-based sensibility is embedded in each material.

Josey Kidd-Crowe’s (Born in Melbourne, 1987) suite of new oil paintings demonstrate a striking formal and emotional range, enlivened by sinuous, flowing strokes in radiant pinks, blues, reds and greens. Allowing moments and emotions from everyday life to act as a sounding board or starting point for the composition and palette of paintings, emotional resonances embodied in the works are felt by the artist, though only hinted at to the viewer. Further augmented by utilising found fabric supports, Kidd-Crowe’s works find rhythms which pulsate from the centre of the canvas. Handled in wet-on-wet oils, which manifest in gestural and biomorphic forms, Kidd-Crowe’s paintings are not held down by meaning, but rather allow ambiguities to remain.

Extending her interest in creating enigmatic and beguiling forms, Nabilah Nordin (Born in Singapore, 1991) has developed a series of new sculptural works in cast bronze and epoxy modelling compound, following on from her major commission as part of ‘The National’ at the Art Gallery of NSW. Nordin’s two new totemic bronze sculptures, ‘Stiletto’ (2023) and ‘Trapdoor’ (2023), disrupt notions of material hierarchies, by realizing playful and improvised shapes in the solidity of bronze. Elevating loose gestural abstractions into elegant and ambitious monuments, Nordin’s work demonstrates an iconoclastic approach to formalist sculpture.
