Ann Wulff is an American artist and educator based in Australia. She graduated with a BFA in Photography in 1979 from the San Francisco Art Institute and was awarded an MA from the University of New Mexico in 1981. Since coming to Australia in 1984, she taught photography at University of Tasmania, Canberra School of Arts, Sydney College of the Arts and Queensland College of the Arts. She is currently teaches at Griffith University in the School of Arts where she founded in 1996 a program in Contemporary Arts that includes visual, digital and collaborative art practices. Since 1990 she has concentrated on the use of the digital image translated into the media of photography and video. She has used scientific and medical imaging processes in collaboration with research institutes to produce artistic bodies of work. Recent series including “Spectre”, “Language of Fear” and “The Lachrymist” have utilised different forms of output media from Superscan prints on to canvas to Lambda digital scans on photographic material. Exhibitions of her photographic and video work from 1985 to the present have included exhibits in the USA at SF Camerawork Gallery and Aremisa Gallery in Chicago, and in Australia at Chameleon Gallery, Experimental Art Foundation, Canberra Contemporary Art Space, Australian Centre for Photography, Institute of Modern Art, and Smith + Stoneley Gallery.
Her talk will address her recent concerns with the embodiment of emotional experiences and representation through lens. These ideas will be discussed through an illustration of her current and previous artwork.
Mona Ryder has been exhibiting and working in various areas of the arts over 30 years and still experimenting and growing. Her work is represented in major art galleries in Australia and international collections. Over the past 7 years she has concentrated on public art commissions in Queensland. Singapore is the first stopover as part of a grant received from the Queensland government. Travel to Spain, Germany, France, and Italy will investigate contemporary art practice and the integration of art, design and landscape in public art and children’s playgrounds.
Her talk will focus on the challenges of not being uni-dimensional and an outline of my practice as an exhibiting artist and most recently in the public art arena.
