    Victorian artist KEVIN CHIN's paintings seek to re-make and integrate his histories and those of others; to reinterpret physical space to create fictive sites, memories and ideas of home. By rearranging and transposing the pattern and placement of objects, Kevin Chin transforms the identity of a 'lost' space to pose and challenge physical and psychological notions of home and belonging - of here and now, and of 'far, far away'.

    Victorian artist CHLOE VALLANCE also plays with levels of visibility and invisibility, of active and passive in works, that, like Chin's, are developed in response to the experience of travel and as a way to document the significance of fleeting, passed or potential moments and memory.

    The shaped formats of board games underpin VILMA BADER's assemblages in which painting and sculpture converge. Her Board Paintings are formalist, gridded, geometric, hard-edged constructed paintings made from myriad sawn and painted wood segments. They are compressed, tight, ordered, obsessive, detailed and mathematically and technically precise. The works are vested in the rhythms, logic and aesthetics of geometry and the intrinsic beauty of systems and relate to the philosophy of art as play.

    ACT artist GREG HODGE investigates the junction between abstract painting and representational image. Through the placement and composition of interlocking shapes and motifs there is both a relationship and a tension between an imagined illusionistic space and a representational image. While the spaces and the forms that develop out of the painting process are invented, the repeated overlay and expansion and stacking of motifs relate to architecture and landscape. This building of forms and their positioning within a painted atmospheric space invite the viewer to seek a recognisable or tangible image within the work.
