Augusta Vinall Richardson
Augusta Vinall Richardson will be completing a Bachelor of Visual Art at VCA in 2017. Her practice engages with identity formation within the gendered landscape of advertising and consumer culture. Processing the result of this exposure to media, she wonders how personal identity creation occurs, and how desire manifests itself within belief systems that are unidentifiable. Augusta has a mutli-disciplinary practice, involving painting, video, photography and textiles. Upcoming shows include 'Jim's Fine Art' at Lon Gallery and 'Turtle Dove' at Verge Gallery in Sydney.
Grace Pickford completed her BFA (Hons) at RMIT in 2016. Her work operates through painting, photography and sculpture and employs childlike ways of expressing complex emotions as a strategy for self-care. Grace has participated in numerous group shows both locally and internationally.
