17 July 2013 | Neon Parc, Mars Gallery and Flinders Lane Gallery have all just announced new additions to their stables.

Pictured above is a public artwork that toured Queensland and China during 2010 and 2011 made by Neon Parc's newest represented artists Janet Burchill and Jennifer McCamley.

Burchill and McCamley have been frequent collaborators since 1985. Their practice embraces a wide variety of media, including sculpture, photography, neon and works on paper. Their works critically engage with the language and history of modernist art and interlace feminist, psychoanalytic and spatial concerns. They are currently exhibiting in Rodeo Gallery in Istanbul, Turkey.

The colourful work pictured immediately above is from Mars Gallery's latest addition, Tasmanian-based artist Tricky Walsh. Her practice is concerned with the integration of mysticism with scientific reasoning, and she has recently completed a permanent public art commission at the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery with Mish Meijers.

The photograph to the left is from Meg Cowell, who has just joined the stable of Flinders Lane Gallery. Cowell's art depicts theatrical garments, lingerie and couture arranged and illuminated while suspended in water. Cowell was a finalist in this year's Josephine Ulrick and Win Schubert Photography Award, and last year she completed a mentorship with acclaimed artist Deborah Paauwe.
