SOLDIERS HILL ARTIST COLLECTIVE

ABOUT

Soldiers Hill Artist Collective

We are a diverse group of practising artists who all live in Soldiers Hill.  We currently have over 35 members who are representative of the broad demographic of our suburb, Ballarat's oldest suburb.

 

Our objective is to maintain an open and inclusive collective that is focused on promoting local arts and artists, whilst reinforcing the positive social benefit of the arts within our immediate community.

 

We are committed to maintaining a sustainable framework for art projects within Soldiers Hill and creating a suburb that is both externally and internally identified as a place where creative diversity is valued and promoted as a community virtue.

ALFRED DEAKIN PLACE, BALLARAT

SKIPTICISM - Diokno Pasilan, Pete Gregg, Scott Fredericks

What has become of the typewriters and turntables and tape recorders of past generations? Where do we look to find them again as fashion determines that their qualities are again desirable? The collaboration of Diokno Pasilan, Pete Gregg & Scott Fredericks has grown from a shared interest in using reclaimed materials to create new artworks - as well as a desire to explore the transition at work today in the evolution of work, skills & resourceful living. A sculptural installation in the forecourt of Backspace Gallery, SKIPTICISM is a meditation on the relationship between two intergenerational & iconic industrial objects - the skip bin and the sewing machine. One was once the symbol of progress, status & ability; used when there was value & pride in the skilled making & repair of garments. It was also a domestic machine of intriguingly Rube Goldberg complexity that allowed for the transfer of these skills & these values from one generation to the next. The other is the repository for what society no longer considers of value, and is itself seen as a modern symbol for what we purchase cheap and discard often. As the construction of domestic clothing has become increasingly industrialised & factory-driven, the object once considered a must-have for resourceful living is now increasingly consigned to the skip bin. SKIPTICISM interprets the skip bin as a vessel for the discarded, contrasting the once-familiar sight & sound of the whirring sewing machine with the harsh reality of their destruction. We are left to ponder whether new generations re-discovering the value of what we once discarded will ever find what is left.

GAS WORKS ART PARK, SOUTH MELBOURNE

FROM NATURE- GROUP EXHIBITION - Kate Cullinan

Gasworks Arts Park will host beautiful organic sculptures as part of a nine day exhibition over two weekends. Visitors can see Land Art installed throughout the park; made from natural materials including flowers, straw, sticks, stones and timber. Vegetation and naturally occurring materials will be composed into organic, transitory sculptures within a natural landscape.
Kate Cullinan - Artist Statement From the Smallest of Seed: Bank those seeds Many of us have endured traumatic events in our lives. Added to this, the avalanche of bad news reported by the media is never ending. This bad news overload can be very disempowering: all told we feel small and powerless. When this happens to me, I focus on nature for renewal and for counterbalance. FOR: from the smallest of acorns huge oaks emerge. Wind, water and soil combine in harmony. While many seeds are neither pretty, colourful nor significant, results are extraordinary. IN FACT: Multitudes of individuals, living in communities across the globe, have taken note of nature's magnificent renewal. From nature's cue they have spread ideas of harmony, peace, understanding, enrichment, joy and wonder. As a symbol of nature's exquisite renewal, I have used various plant materials to construct an oversize seed head. By building a bamboo and reed base intertwined with various seeds, and positioning this piece overhead at an angle, I'm aiming to replicate a swirling seed on its way to the ground. If you ever feel overwhelmed by life - personal sadness combined with media overload - plan to flip across nature's counterbalance. REMEMBER: The multitude of global idea spreaders The beauty and wonder emerging from the smallest of seeds And REMEMBER to bank those powerful, life changing seeds.
