Past Resident2011: TMU - Trust For Mutual Understanding
Zbyněk Sedlecký uses acrylic colors on canvas to create his compositions. His gestures are quick and his brushstrokes give life to rapidly changing cityscapes. The results look like a sketchbook and become an agile collection of transient thoughts. Sedlecký looks at the “process in time” itself, in which something becomes extinct in order for something new to be born.
Zbyněk Sedlecký (born 1976 in Ostrava, Czech Republic) lives and works in Prague, Czech Republic. He studied at the Faculty of Fine Arts in Brno, Czech Republic and at the Academy of Fine Arts, Prague. Group exhibitions include 2010 Liverpool Biennial, UK; Prague City Gallery; House of the Golden Ring, GHMP, Prague and CNEAI, Chatou, France. Solo shows include Prinz Prager Gallery, Prague; 35M2 Gallery, Prague and Gandy Gallery, Bratislava, Slovakia.

Marian Drew ‘s work focuses on the hybridisation of drawing and photography through studies in the studio, darkroom and landscape working to develop a language that acknowledges the dynamic relationship between photographer and subject exploited through extended exposure times. The constrained gesture of the photographer becomes interactive working to make the photograph in front of the lens. Drew reorientates and questions contemporary frameworks of history, place and the domestic.
Marian Drew is Associate Professor in Photography at the Queensland College of Art, Griffith University. Her work is held in numerous public and private collections including the Getty Museum and the National Gallery of Australia. She graduated from the Canberra School of Art and was awarded a German Government Scholarship studying Experimental Photography, at Kassel University. Since then she has held 25 solo exhibitions in Australia, the United States, France and Germany and contributed to over forty curatorial shows in Australia, China, Taiwan, Germany and the United States. She represented Australia in the First Asia Pacific Triennial in 1992 and her first monograph was published in 2006 by the Queensland Centre for Photography.
