Anna Pappas gallery in Melbourne have recently acquired artists Steaphan Paton and Troy Innocent to their stable.

Paton’s work is informed by the physical and industrial conflicts between cultures and how differences allow dominance of one culture over another. The colonisation of the Gippsland area, marred by the violation of Gunai culture and previous violent conflict, is explored through his paintings, installations and videos.

Paton’s work has been included in numerous group, festival and prize exhibitions, with his work held in the collections of the National Gallery of Victoria, the Melbourne Museum, Brooklyn Art Gallery, and the Wellington Shire Council.

Innocent explores connections and multiplicity in his works of design, sculpture, animation, sound and installation. Through his multi-platform storytelling, he creates a game for viewers to play. Holding a doctorate of philosophy in animation and interactive media, Innocent interacts with the contemporary mediascape in a way that explores the connections between language and reality.

Innocent has participated in numerous group exhibitions, including the National Gallery of Victoria, Canberra’s National Portrait Gallery and Sydney’s Museum of Contemporary Art.

The gallery will be holding solo shows of each artist in early 2015.
