In the Art House, creativity is a way of life. Warehouse Collective forges friendships and fine art under the same roof. Artists who call this craftwork factory home have a lot in common, while at the same time utilising contrasting materials and mediums.
Themes of nature and conservation unite their representations, with members of the collective meticulously reassembling other people's rubbish into miraculous works of art.
This exhibition presents a variety of artworks with a great diversity of styles, techniques, colours and materials, including painting, embroidery, quilting, textiles and beading.

Often playing with scale, Woollon invites the viewer into the intimacy of meticulous detail, while emerging them in a world of colour.

Carolina Khouri is known for her large, abstract, and highly expressive paintings. She has been developing visual language that responds to reciprocity of forming conjunction of seemingly incompatible aesthetics. Carolina is primarily known as an abstract painter, yet she explores diverse disciplines and media such as video recording, found objects, installation, and sculpture.
Judith Klok is an embroidery artist of Dutch-German origin who was trained in embroidery at Ecole Lesage in Paris. A passion for writing and music naturally became part of her embroidery. Curiosity turned cleaning up the local beach into creating artworks with ocean waste. It became important to create work with materials and techniques used in fashion, and incorporate collected waste, giving new purpose to washed-up materials.
I am not speaking but ‘listening through my eyes’. Forging my own experimental visual language, I combine aspects of sculpture and painting in highly individual and personal compositions. The interplay of colour, form and structural arrangement constitutes my language and a conduit of resonance with a viewer. View more from Wojciech Sobczynski.
