The Loading Dock, Loading Zone & Pit
Continuing the grand tradition of the sculpture Shed Show, the Shed Show 2010 presents work from a selection of artists at various stages in their careers. It exhibits a diverse range of work from large sculptural forms to intricate and detailed sculptural ceramic pieces and beyond. The show is an invitation to explore the results and rewards of many hours in the shed by this select group of artists.

The Long Room & Media Space
Nothing in life is to be feared. It is to be understood
Fear Art explores the notion of fear from four different perspectives. This exhibition presents a creepy-to-fun perspective of one of life’s most interesting and challenging concepts, from depictions of women in horror films to the fear of heights.
The Locker Room
The ghosts of memory are always with us, unreliable and elusive, they imprint the present with an undertone of all that has gone before. Fragments of other times and places can emerge in surprising ways, telling us stories which may or may not be true.
I am a photomedia artist, working in Newcastle and I am in my final year of a Bachelor of Fine Art at the University of Newcastle. I have exhibited extensively in Newcastle and Melbourne.
Who’s Your Daddy, Baby Doll?
This show explores gender ideologies and socially constructed identities, specifically female. The androgynous ceramic baby doll face forms a series of subliminal messages. An unsuspecting viewer at first glance may see faces of innocence. Deeper examination exposes the subtle cultural psychological conditioning that is fed to infants through to adulthood.
The purpose of this show is to allow us to re-think the cultural and psychological spaces traditionally assigned to women and consequently re-envision the subject itself, from a psychoanalytical perspective.
