Arising from a curiosity about how the world is encountered and represented, WA-based artist Susanna Castleden is interested in how the consequence and affect of global mobility has changed the way we see and perceive the world, and how this has necessitated alternative ways of visualising our position within it.

She has participated in many national exhibitions as well as winning prestigious art prizes including the 2011 Joondalup Art Prize, 2013 Burnie Print Prize, 2013 Bankwest Art Prize and the 2015 Linden Art Prize. Susanna's artworks can be found in several important art collections, such as the National Gallery of Australia, Artbank, University of WA, Wesfarmers, Kerry Stokes, Bankwest and Edith Cowan University.

For the last 30 years Bevan Honey's art practice has covered various traditional aspects of art making, from two dimensional painting and printmaking to sculptural forms. However his materials have often challenged the norm, with the resulting artworks hard to classify. In the past he has utilised found objects, automotive paint, and architectural wood veneer.

Honey's work is held in numerous state and national collections including the National Gallery of Australia, Art Gallery of Western Australia, Art Gallery of South Australia, Artbank, various Council, City, University and Hospital collections as well as private collections nationally and internationally. His public art commissions include the upcoming Scarborough Beach Entry Statement.
