Meet Phoebe Paradise

Phoebe Paradise is an artist, muralist, fashion designer and musician based in Meanjin (Brisbane). Inspired by subtropical punk and rock ‘n’ roll, Phoebe has worked with Splendour in the Grass, Laneway Festival, BIGSOUND, 4ZZZ, Amnesty International, The Lifted Brow, Queensland Music Festival, and countless venues and bands across Australia.

Subtropical Surreal is a dreamy, animated mixture of domestic scenes. It magnifies the private and surreal moments of living in a city that is constantly renegotiating its relationship with the natural subtropical environment. This artwork was recently featured as part of Apple’s national campaign Behind the Mac – Made in Australia.

Meet Hailey Atkins

Hailey Atkins is a Brisbane-based sculptural artist and graduate of the Queensland College of Art. Hailey has exhibited across Queensland, Australia and the Netherlands, where she undertook an exchange and residency with Kaus Australis in Rotterdam. Hailey was a finalist in the Churchie Emerging Art Prize in 2018 and is a Co-Founder of Wreckers Artspace, an artist-run initiative based in Brisbane.

Whither weather celebrates Brisbane as a subtropical city.  It presents a short journey through a place, both real and imagined, populated by bright, abstract, weird and wonky objects. An ode to the South East Queensland summer, the animation incorporates forms, colours and textures that reveal new perspectives and interpretations. The artist deconstructs and recombines forms in new ways, referencing Brisbane’s hilly suburbs, hot summer days and subtropical thunderstorms.
