Wayne Chang is a maestro of dark humor, weaving tongue-in-cheek, dystopian narratives through his art. From a fallen Mayor McCheese to eerily open 7-Eleven stores amidst seemingly abandoned environments, Wayne’s work is a commentary on self, family, and society. Drawing inspiration from a diverse range of artists, his work plays with viewers’ expectations of the world. Through his unnaturally reimagined images of everyday life, Wayne challenges us to confront racial, commercial, and political issues.

All the way from Kellyville, Australia, Dilara Niriella brings a unique twist to the art of sculpture and views of domesticity. Her hyperrealistic creations depict bustling kitchen scenes, lively party aftermaths, and sculptural wood cut-outs of beloved food brands like Vegemite and the iconic soy fish dispenser. With an underlying theme of consumerism, identity, and familiarity, Dilara’s art challenges perceptions and invites contemplation. She even gave an insight into her studio ambiance – think music, podcasts, and a trail of half-empty tea mugs!

Bella Wattles’ paintings are a celebration in themselves. With watermelon and cake taking center stage against inviting, lived-in backdrops, Bella invites you to step into her world and embrace self-celebration. Her works are a tribute to the relationships between objects, often featuring creations by women and LGBTQ+ artists. By showcasing colorful, carefully curated items, Bella champions the idea that women are the backbone of society. Prepare to be enchanted by whimsical environments, where toy cars and disco balls take center stage in a modern twist on classic still life compositions.
