Peter Boggs
In an age when time is measured in nanoseconds and information is conveyed in sound bites, Peter Boggs' art may appear as strangely anachronistic with its emphasis on timelessness and distilled beauty.

Tim Storrier
Storrier became a celebrity when at the age of nineteen he was awarded the Sulman Prize, the youngest artist ever to win it. Talented and precocious, he had two mentors who provided the young artist with support and encouragement, Brett Whiteley and John Olsen. Through a long and active career, Storrier has produced a large body of work which includes some paintings on a heroic scale. Known for his dramatic paintings of incendiary fires, Storrier only began to include the figure in his most recent work, where he has revealed another facet of his consummate skill as a painter.
