GERMANE - Clare Mc ShanagClare Mc Shanag creates art to channel her inner and outer awareness as an expression of creation and colour - spilling out into image. Her vision is to convert her passion into a medium that ignites a very fuelling and awakening experience for the eyes of the beholder.
A germane visual explosion - relevant to life or to subject under consideration, to our human-ness. Her work is very personal, she invites the viewer to have you look closer into the image to reveal the fine detail that unfolds upon each viewing.

RAGE AGAINST THE LIGHT - Markus AndersenBlack Eye Gallery are proud to present the official Australian book launch and exhibition of 'Rage Against The Light” by Sydney based artist Markus Andersen. Markus writes - 'Rage Against The Light' explores my intoxication with natural light and the darkness / dark corners created from this light. Subjects caught in the dual forces of light and shadow remain at the heart of the work, the interplay of these elements within the architecture or landscape create order from discordance. 'Rage Against The Light' emphasizes the dramatic nature of intense or subdued light and my continued relationship and fascination with the subject.

CONCRETE- RHIANNON SLATTER‘Concrete’, a series of large scale prints, represents both an extension of and departure from Rhiannon Slatter’s architectural photography. Her fascination with scales of production in industry has led her to study the prefabricated concrete forms which appear frequently in our landscape and continue to multiply - simple, austere shapes which represent large scale, fast construction methods themselves while also serving as containers for industrial production.
