Vondove | Painter
Vondove is a self taught painter of rural Victoria. She has developed a visionary relationship to art and is using it as a devotional tool to express themes of the higher self, as well as honouring mother nature in her many forms. Her work reflects the inner shifts of the spiritual path, as we come closer to ourselves and each other in this evolutionary step into One.
Harrys works bridge traditions in eastern art and contemporary shamanism, transmitted by mandalic form, he hopes to bring wisdom from the past and plants into the subconscious awareness of his viewers.
Hamish Donaldson | Glassblower
Hamish explores the ancient art form of glassblowing to produce pieces that mirror the strange world we are surrounded by. Glass is a very unknown art form to many, and is an extremely mesmerising dance to create something from the raw power of 1200 degree molten glass.
Marilena Laulu | Artist
Marilena is a multifaceted artist from the Netherlands. She has used painting and drawing as a tool for self expression from a young age, but it was only later in life that she found a true depth and sense of inner peace in it. Her art is inspired by reoccurring symbolism in dreams, her journeys with various plant teachers and the intrinsic beauty of nature. In the last years she has rediscovered the healing power of devotional song and together with her partner Jackson, she longs to explore and share this space more deeply.
Veronique is a Canadian creatress performing playful takes on colours, and experimenting with different ranges of her re-emerging use of a now signature space-face. Using the face as a point of reference, the work is free to flow from centre outwards in mandala fashion. The familiarity of human eyes staring back encourages an exchange between the viewer and the piece, as if staring in the eyes of someone standing before you. Inviting you to look deeper, and notice the peripheral dances.
