Indivi (b.2000, New York, USA) resides in both Sydney and New York. Indivi's practice originates from her education at the Rudolf Steiner School in New York City, where she was introduced to an enchantment of color which has been the foundation of a deep desire to explore its interpretation and evocativeness in her painting. Indivi works with natural pigment powders that imbibe the raw linen to create paintings that are resonant of experience and emotion being frequencies of the invisible. The tenor of Indivi’s work explores the nuance of emotional interdependence, the relationship between painting and memory.
Indivi's practice originates from her education at the Rudolf Steiner School in New York City, where the understanding of color was intrinsic to the ethos; the seasons provided a deep understanding of how light and color penetrate our beings. Indivi believes this engagement with each color in its pure form has manifested within her a sensory relationship with color and how it feels; not just seeing, but feeling the tones that live within an object, element, or place and in each breath. The paintings are of raw linen and pigment powders, where the pigment imbibes the raw linen, allowing the color its own expression. The colors that emerge onto the canvases for each work are formed from deep contemplation and observation of her surrounding world, the universal language of absence and presence, remembrance, and of hope and healing and essentially being human.
Eurythmy by Indivi holds the resonance of the natural world's imprint on our beings and explores the indivisible nature of color, gesture, and soul. The work seeks to unfold the individual pulse within each color, while also connecting the viewer with our intuitive being; in doing so, it enables a deeper attunement to the subtle energies, ultimately fostering greater empathy, compassion, and contributing to the evolution of humanity towards greater unity and harmony.

Sang Eun (b. 1993, Seoul, South Korea) is an artist working with photography, printmaking, and film. Eun gained his interest in photography through photojournalism and later expanded to various genres of visual arts. After Eun moved to New York to achieve a Bachelor of Fine Arts at the School of Visual Arts, he started road trips across the United States where he was profoundly moved by the American landscape. Eun’s photographic practice explores the interpretation of the space, site, and the form of the objects to question his emotional states.
Eun’s interpretation of nature, how the environment comes to him as an impression, matters in his photographic practice. For Eun, space has feelings as well as forms, and colors – air, trees, rocks, what’s around him – and that infuses the work. Eun focuses on having a deeper understanding of his inner experience that exists as a dialogue within himself. As a result, it often allows for a connection between consciousness and unconsciousness. Landscape painters and photographers represent the earth, sky, and the condition of gravity in comprehensive detail, however, in Eun’s photographs, he removes enough in a structural sense to convey his experience of an inner landscape.
Eun’s work involves an analog photographic printing process on hand-woven Korean/Japanese paper. This process suggests an intimate connection between the shown image and the textures of the work, providing the viewers with an enthralling experience instead of solely allowing them to look at the pictured object. This interaction is mirrored in the relationship between the beholder and the photograph. Eun depicts the color of the land, the feelings of the rocks, and the sound of the mountains that exist as an impression. “With my prints, we don’t all see depth in a conventional way”, Eun says. What Eun conveys to the viewer is to produce something that goes beyond an image which is the scale, texture, and the weight of his inner experience in order to stimulate theirs.
