  Feature Artist : Maki Horanai
Maki was born in Japan and grew up in small seaside villages in Hokkaido where she often sat or played along the beach.  Her early influences were the ocean, the shore, the birds and islands she saw both in reality and in her imagination.  Makis' paintings show a world that exists both nowhere and everywhere, in the real world and in our dreams.

Iconography and symbolism are at the heart of Maki Horanais' paintings. Her works recall the beautiful surfaces and sacred intricacies of religious paintings of the high renaissance. Horanai manipulates her acrylic paints to mimic the dense and precious hues of tempera and gold leaf. Her landscapes are populated by figures, maybe human or maybe divine, interacting in a stylised and dreamlike landscape. Her work reflects an elegant marriage of artistic influences and cultural learning.

Horanais' symbolic lexicon does not come with translation, the features of the paintings give a strong sense of meaning, but this meaning is not explained. Horanais' works are beautiful, they are technically graceful and conceptually wistful.

Ken Gailer presents a series of landscape paintings he refers to as “Windows to the World”. These works are reflections of the Australian landscape painted from both memory and photographs.  Minutely detailed panels juxtaposed with expansive passages of sky and water, they explore the moods, colours and ever changing patterns of the world in which we live.

A love of objects and working with the transparent medium of glass has enabled Kayo Yokoyama to express her concept of 'home'. She says, “The landscape in an object is a metaphor... homeland is a place I search for. Whilst I am sitting among trees, I am in my homeland".

Keith Rowe has worked with glass for over 20 years and enjoys creating balanced forms with exciting decorative elements. Over the years Keith has developed his own individual styles, often working on a body of work to produce a series.

Keith states 'My pieces are an acknowledgement of our beautiful and wondrous world in what is a very fragile place in the planetary experience.'
