Hadijah is an exuberant artist who lives in an outer suburb of Sydney. She proclaims, ‘reuse, reduce and recycle is the inspiration for her recent works.
Fuelled by a sense of play, wanting to preserve time, space and memory, creating each recycled coffee pod mosaic is an artistic process allowing her to cross boundaries of sculpture and painting. Bringing these works to life with their rich browns, fertile greens and bright bold blues. These colours are symbols of nature intending to touch and sooth the senses. Hadijah aims to capture imagination through her works that inspires audiences into active conservation, to re-create, reduce and reconnect, enabling both to pay tribute to the natural world.
Kes gently turns our attention to reuse and gleaning. Her jewellery captures the otherwise unseen details of our everyday, often framing them in sterling silver, wrapped in intrigue of their origin. Gleaned jewellery is elegant, contemporary and industrial in style. Earrings embrace silver fittings in their design. Colourful patterns on olive oil tins, biscuit or tea tins evoke exotic places of olive groves or mermaids & ornate florals. To this jeweller, 'scrap' become decorative earrings, necklaces, brooches and rings.
