The paintings of Johnny Abrahams demand at once both closer inspection and to be seen from a distance. Once your eyes adapt to the dizzying, disorienting patterns, new forms emerge from the chaos. Minimalist compositions congeal from clashes and symmetries in the constituent lines. Less is moiré, you might say.
Dosshaus is the collective imagining of Zoey Taylor and David Connelly. Met in late 2010, Zoey and David immediately recognized in each other a kindred artistic spirit. Together they create House of Cardboard, a photography project showcasing the interior of a retro-style home constructed out of cardboard, paint and glue.

Between the years of 2005 and 2009 she attended the Jingdezhen Ceramic Institute, Jingdezhen, Jiangxi, China and arrived in Australia in late 2009 after graduating from the Institute.

Working with heavy materials hurt my back, so I wanted to come up with a process that was light. I thought of photography — it’s paper and it’s light.
I just used photographs; I assembled the photos in a paper-mâché style and the sculpture was hollow. As the sculptures got bigger, I began using a wire armature for support. But it was still hollow, which was problematic. Whenever people touched the work it went in, and it was hard to pull back out. So I started to use Styrofoam as a base for the imagery.
