The Art of Abstract Comics

BY KYM TABULO
@ VOL 18 ON AUG 24, 2016

Kym Tabulo works in the field of abstract comics.  This is an emerging 21st century genre that combines the conventions of traditional comics with abstract painting.  Kym creates works on canvas and paper using a range of formats, scales, techniques and media. Her pioneering work experiments with the idea that dynamic, organic movement and growth can be conveyed in a single image or a sequence of images, to create a sense of movement that also suggests the passage of time. Her process is a combination of intuitive and planned art making. The intention of her work is to generate a visual rhythm rather than tell a story, however others may wish to invent their own story or find a theme.

The Possibility of Coffee

BY HEATHER BARRIE
@ VOL 10 ON JUN 21, 2018

Heather Barrie takes us on a journey in order to discover our own, individual identity through the simple acronym- CULTURE. We are educated in making a difference through the smallest of acts and standing out from the crowd through recognising our vision, converting that into our purpose, and then creating our mission. She compares us to a whirlwind which is only ever started with a breeze and gives us the only question we need to ask ourselves in order to enrich our individual culture- How do I want to be seen?
