2016 'Five to one'
Five to One is an exhibition of charcoal drawings, surfboards inlaid with images, and large digital prints.
These works reflect on the beauty of our natural world as well as the mystery of the subconscious through hybrid images and marine forms designed to trigger the viewer’s imagination.
The work references the strange and poetic lyrics of the 1960s rock group The Doors. They inspired a generation with lyrics that evoked imaginings of the human psyche.

Contemporary artists in Australia investigate place, identity, memory and history through the graphic image.
In terms of the number of artists and scale of the works included, this is the one of the largest exhibitions of contemporary prints and drawings to be shipped to the United States from Australia.
The exhibition The Body Politic: Contemporary artists in Australia investigate place, identity, memory and history through the graphic image presents the work of seventeen Australian artists. Although most of these artists work across different mediums, all have taken a primary interest in using print or graphic mediums and the printed or drawn image is the focus of this exhibition. Nevertheless, variety is a hallmark of the selection made by Richard Hricko, during his visit to Australia in August 2014, for this exhibition he has co-curated with Amze Emmons. The works by the artists range from artist’s books to printed surfboards, with the majority of the work specifically produced or adapted for display in the massively scaled ICE Box Project Space at Crane Arts.
The artists represented are Staff, Adjuncts or Postgraduate students from Queensland College of Art, Griffith University in Brisbane, Australia and the exhibition has been supported by the Griffith Centre for Creative Arts Research. QCA is the oldest university-based art school in Australia and has developed a close relationship with Tyler School of Art, Temple University and the Crane Arts Centre in Philadelphia over the past decade.
The Artists are: Jennifer Andrews, Blair Coffey, Clare Cowley, Carolyn Craig, Russell Craig, Paul Eves, Evan Gardner, David Jones, Tim Mosley, Bill Platz, Ryan Presley, Jude Roberts, Michelle Roberts, Jenny Sanzaro-Nishimura, Glen Skien, Jonathan Tse and Judy Watson
