Georgia Laughton is a mostly-Melbourne-based artist working in a wide range of media, with a focus on fine-art and social-documentary photography, lithography and painting with oils. Raised in country Victoria, Laughton is now a self-described 'inner-city soy-latte-sipping greenie' whose subjects include animal rights, the environment and interrogating traditional notions of beauty.
While Laughton strongly believes in art as a form of activism, her work remains personal, grounded and sometimes whimsical as she explores her own place in the world. Expressing the tension between the didactic and the intimate in her paintings, she points to her recurring theme of birds; 'sometimes it's a metaphor and sometimes it's just a bird'.

Luna Cameron-Parrish (AKA Amethyst Moon) is a mixed media artist and sculptor. She describes her style as diverse, eclectic and quirky, with a penchant for mildly dark humour and subversive elements.
Luna is interested in using art to explore everything from the sublime to the ridiculous, but increasingly it is the ridiculous that comes through more strongly. Being particularly baffled by the
absurdity of modern life, human indifference and the state of the planet, Luna is searching for ways to question her part in all the nonsense. Currently she is trying to inject more humour into
her art to counteract the feelings of anxiety, frustration and impotence that all of this invokes.
Her work has been shown in galleries in New Zealand, South Australia, New South Wales, Tasmania and Victoria, with her most recent representation being at In.cube8r Gallery in Fitzroy, the annual Toorak Sculpture Exhibition and the Australian National Brooch Show.
Katie Theodorus works in acrylics, watercolour, soft sculpture and mixed media. Irony figures large in her work, addressing serious subjects with a satirical twist. Lately she has been exploring
the increasingly blurred edges between ‘fact’ and conspiracy, truth and post-truth.
