Feature Artist: Judy Prosser  


Judy has lived and painted in the Kimberley since 1979. She has focused her imagery on the desert landscape, the indigenous people and their activities and the wildlife of the north of Western Australia and the Northern Territory.  

Her great respect and understanding for indigenous people, and their spiritual connection to the land, has given Judy a direction that has evolved into a distinctive approach to painting them.  

Her new works comprising of acrylic on Belgium linen depict the inimitable indigenous community whilst capturing the spectacular colour, light and vitality of the country of the Kimberley.

Feature Artist: Ian Dickinson


After obtaining a Diploma in Art (Industrial Design) from the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology, Ian worked as a graphic designer and illustrator in Melbourne and Canberra for ten years. In 1996 he worked as a freelance illustrator and artist, preparing artwork based on Western Australia’s natural history. His paintings up until 2007 were in a more illustrative style, but since then he has adopted an abstract style, enjoying the freedoms from visual references.

In his art he tries to deconstruct the landscape into simpler picture elements of form, line, colour and space, using their interplay to compose an aesthetic, abstract design whilst attempting not to destroy its identity and mood.

There is no political or social comment in his art.  The paintings focus on the beauty, moods and expanse of the WA environment and our place within it. The reality and consequences of human impact provide another layer of interest.

Feature Artist: Paul Margocsy  


Paul Margocsy was born in Melbourne in 1945 and has had no formal art training but developed a love for painting at an early age. In 1978 he became engrossed in wildlife art and has had several outstanding exhibitions in most Australian states.  

A traditional realist with a photographic memory and prodigious drawing skills, Paul is able to capture more than a visual truth. Through observation and knowledge of different bird species behaviours, Paul is able to show the character and charm of his subjects.

Paul’s new works feature wildlife along with paintings of his iconic birds.

New Work: Rick Knopke

Rick began working with wood in earnest in 1973, and has been madly in love with the material and process ever since.  Early work was driven by the material, an infatuation with touch smell and feel, and the absolute pleasure of making.

In time, this lead to increased consideration of the form as an overarching element in his endeavours. Lots of work in very plain woods. In the early eighties he began to play around with veneers and wanted to embellish simple forms with marquetry.  What he had in mind was a world away from the exuberance of the Rococo period with Rick wanting to express simple ideas in a restrained manner.  Simple ideas have a way of being something else entirely in the execution.
