   Golden  Dawn
  Feature Artist: Ken Rasmussen
Ken Rasmussen has lived and travelled widely in Western Australia and spent time observing the landscape in detail. His works are represented in many public and private collections both in Australia and overseas.

Ken has painted professionally since graduating, gaining a reputation for drawing, watercolour and oil painting skills that place him in the front rank of realist-impressionist painters working today.

In this latest series of work, Ken Rasmussen looked for alternatives that would force him to paint using new processes of applying paint to the canvas. Over the past year Ken has developed his own painting technique whereby works are drawn with an engraving drill and then painted with rollers and oil paint sticks.

The paintings depict the Mosman Bay area and the Perth CBD skyline.

   Feature Artist: Simon Mclean
Simon Mclean's works display deft graphic skills, with an underlying sense of humour finely honed over many years of working in the publishing and advertising industries, both in Australia and Internationally. Simon has also successfully developed and illustrated his own children’s book ranges and a myriad of illustration projects.

Simon’s art on paper, canvas and also sculpture continues to be applauded for its originality and eclectic themes that have been described as anything from dark and moody to hilariously disturbing. His vision is one of a universe where frailty and humour collide, where the exaggerated is normal and where the sky is perpetually aglow. So strong is his imagery that his works become so beautifully luminous that they embed themselves in the viewers mind in nothing less than technicolor.
