University graduates show their undiscovered works

ARTISTS: Work by Leah Thiessen
ARTISTS: Work by Leah Thiessen Contributed

UNDISCOVERED, an exhibition by three local artists, will open on Friday, October 24, at the Lone Goat Gallery at the Byron Bay Library.

All three artists - Rebecca Mackney, Steve Waller and Leah Thiessen - are recent graduates of Southern Cross University's Bachelor of Visual Arts.

Stephen Waller's dynamic images merge pure bold and energetic marks alongside beautifully delicate lyrical lines and explore the figurative form through the art of drawing.

Leah Thiessen is a current finalist for the 2014 Paddington Art Prize. Her paintings are process- driven, led by intuition where the drawn line wanders across the picture plain, creating atmosphere and mood while establishing a sense of place.

Rebecca Mackney's paintings explore semi-abstraction through the human form. Influenced by the female figure, her work exhibits a love of contour-line drawing. This technique is the creative basis for the start of most of Mackney's painting with lines that are light and playful.
