LOUISE DE WEGER
“I do works on custom made and stretched canvas with hand crafted Tasmanian Oak frames and also high gloss, reflective works on alu-panel – an aluminium composite which are all very striking. My artworks look stunning on a sparse wall where the colours and geometric shapes really pop.” [via]

RUTH CRESPO HERNANDEZ
“I’m a modern contemporary artist from Melbourne. My work is abstract and very organic, where I work with gravity and texture to achieve natural patterns. The aim of my work is to be moving while focusing on an aesthetically pleasing finish, this is due to my love of interior design. While my art doesn’t have a specific storyline, or meaning, I like the idea that it is left to the interpretation, and it resonates with people in different ways. I often think about how my art will look in a room, the effect it will have and the mood it will set. The goal of my colour series, is to bring a positive feel to a space. While with my monochrome series I like to focus more on sharp and clean finishes with contrast; or a soft mood with the faded paintings.” [via]
