Supporting Local Artists - Supporting Local Change

Georgia Steele’s art auction celebrates award-winning artists from Hughes and beyond. Our local artists have been severely impacted by the pandemic (with very little support from the government). 12 artists from Dharawal land (Sutherland Shire and South Coast) have partnered with us to bring together this exciting event, with all proceeds going both to the artists themselves and to support Georgia’s campaign.

White Flesh Shines, Sulawesi, 2018

24″ X 36″. Custom built backlit lightbox out of recycled blackbutt timber, FujiTrans ChromogenicPrint, Tru Vue Ultra Clear Art glass.

Aristo Risi's award winning image of a plastic bag floating in central Sulawesi off the Togean Islands, captured whilst freediving. Upon arriving at the dive site and seeing the currents had brought in a huge amount of trash, the dive plan was changed to try to clean the site up. During the dive Risi ruptured his eardrum and was out of the water for 7 weeks. This image went on to win the water category in the Sony Alpha Aus/NZ photo competition in 2019.

Risi is captivated by the way plastic tries to imitate life in the water: through movement and light the plastic bag dances in the currents, ready to poison any marine life that falls for its dark beauty.
