KXT FEATURED ARTISTS
Oliver Clarke - June 2017
Oliver Clarke is a Correspondent Cameraman with the Nine Network Australia for the European Bureau. He has covered major world news in over twenty countries, and continues to enjoy the frantic life that comes with last minute scrambles to the airport and hotel room service feeds (of which the quality varies). His work is showcased on The Today Show, Channel Nine News and 9news.com.au.
More of his adventures can be seen on his instagram account: ollie_clarke.
I’ve always considered myself incredibly lucky to be able to do a job I love; a journalist friend of mine described our jobs as “tickets to history”. I’ve been to places and witnessed events that only the privileged get to see, and I’ve had to cover stories and film subjects that only the unlucky have to attend. It’s a battle of ups and downs; the good and the bad; the right and the wrong, but it’s always exciting.
I chose this collection of photographs to show the vast variety of situations that a Correspondent Cameraman can experience. My role as a Cameraman doesn’t feature in many of the photos, but it’s that job that allows me to discover these locations and situations, and experience something new each time.
I hope you enjoy looking at these images, as much as I enjoyed taking them.
There is always a shot out there; you just need to find it.
The work of our Featured artists can be viewed during theatre opening hours. Head over to the home page and click on Now Showing to see when you can get along.
Note that you don't need to buy a ticket to the show to view the art work. But you'll probably want to...
Yvette Tziallas - April 2017
YMT is a Sydney based Contemporary visual artist, who works in a variety of mediums ranging from drawing, glass, print media, textiles, photography, and mural work. She has exhibited extensively since 2008 in a number of group shows around Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Brisbane and the Gold Coast. Her work has featured in various magazine and book publications, and held in private collections throughout Australia.
Her style reflects an abstracted perception of how we, as humans, are built using the smallest of cells, molecules and particles to construct a large, multi-functioning organism (the body) and reinterpreted by her using pen to paper. There is a balance between design, pattern making and her obsessive detailing with the structures, and formation of human anatomy, its composition, construction and her deconstruction of it. Her drawings echo personal experiences and emotions, with symbols, patterns and themes that are appropriated from the cross-cultural abundance that influences and surrounds her.
YMT’s drawings are visual statements on the human condition, exploring our ephemerality, our genetic faults, notioning sexuality, and uncovering the beauty in the grotesque and morbid. Her work is an expression of the unconscious, a catharsis for things only aptly represented visually. Amongst the themes embedded in her works, is the constant exploration and dissecting of self.
