|MARS Gallery in Victoria has announced their representation of three new artists; Wanda Gillespie, Josh Muir and Anna Louise Richardson.|
Originally from New Zealand, Wanda Gillespie creates work using sculpture, photography and video. Her practice explores ideas of culture, ritual and ceremony. Gillespie has exhibited in the National Sculpture Prize, was awarded the Art and Australia Credit Suisse private banking award in 2014 and is currently a finalist in the Wallace Art Awards 2015.
Josh Muir's artwork draws on street art culture, often depicting Indigenous and colonial histories through his bold digital prints. Muir won the Telstra National Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Art Youth Award in 2015 and has been selected as a Major Project sculptor for Lorne Sculpture Biennale 2016.
Western Australian emerging artist, Anna Louise Richardson creates work that focuses on issues of regional identity, inter-generational communication and the intersection of art, artefact and material culture. Her artistic practice explores different ways to articulate the complexities of rural identity and changing relationships with the land in a contemporary Australian environment. Richardson has been announced as a finalist in the Fisher's Ghost Art Award 2015.
