Congratulations to all applicants who entered this year’s Waterhouse Natural Science Art Prize and for providing a challenging and exciting opportunity for the judging panel to select works for the prizes and also for the exhibition. The world of natural science is truly amazing, as shown through the works of all the contributing artists and confirmed by the diversity of the artworks entered. The intellect and intensity of Natural Science as an influential content is counterbalanced with works that resonate of personal and passionate conviction for natural science, close up, in our lives and of the wider planet.

If you have a chance to visit the Waterhouse Natural Science Art Prize 2016 at the South Australia Museum it will certainly be worthwhile. The exhibition showcases the finalist’s artworks drawn from the Open and Emerging Artist categories exploring the theme of Natural Science within their artwork. This year’s winner of the Waterhouse Natural Science Art Prize is artist, Julia deVille, for her stunning artwork, Neapolitan Bonbonaparte and artist, Dan Power as winner for the Emerging Artist category for his intriguing artwork, G(RAZED).

This year video works were included in the Waterhouse Natural Science Art Prize, entries in any form of visual fine art were eligible with the exception of photography.

Winners receive:

Open Prize $30,000, sponsored by Fisher Jeffries, Barristers & Solicitors
Emerging Artist Prize $10,000, sponsored by the Hill Smith Gallery

Family Genes

'Family Genes' by Eleanor Gates-Stuart

‘Family Genes’ by Artist, Eleanor Gates-Stuart

Revisiting artworks ‘Virus’ … actually these ones were never really completed rather a state of mind – thoughts expressed as video installations. The theme lead to other things such as my focus on Science+Art and the opportunity to research bioinformatics and genetic variation through other works such as ‘StellrScope’ and ‘FingerCodes’.  

Amazing to see my family’s involvement in my work, how they have been a part of my work (always) and with tremendous respect to them.

Exploring spaces at Scitech WA as planning for my Artist in Residence work is under development. A few days to meet with the amazing team of staff and enjoying seeing the exhibits full of visitors – so much fun.

Will keep posting about the project especially as we move nearer the date to the launch. Had a great look around all the spaces and saw a super cool exhibition about to open. I had a special peek of the exhibition behind the scenes. Lots to think about…………

Post-it sketches

Post-it sketches (x3) by Eleanor Gates-Stuart

Post-it sketches (x3) by Eleanor Gates-Stuart ©

Post-it sketches reflect my thoughts and capture snippets of my daily life. They have been something that sit in the background to my artist practice – more of a distraction to what I am actually doing and sometimes an enjoyable gift to send a friend and share with family.  Drawing has always been part of my life but I never really regarded any of these sketches as an influence until I was in my final year at art school. It was then that they became part of my work having gained the confidence to put them out in public. A tutor had seen one of my letters that I was writing to a friend and asked about all the sketches that I was adding into the letter and asked if this was something that I enjoyed. Much of my earlier work show signs of this approach as I fluctuated through various stylistic methods to tell a story – more often to deflect the viewer from the real story or the images being personalised. A bit of a contraction really as everyone knew they were my drawings.

I still add drawings to my letters, enjoying a fountain pen and smudging my sketch with my fingers. These days I do not write as many letters as I would like to send as email is so much quicker and I guess that is why I started using the post-it notes as they are always on my desk. A thought will be put straight onto the note and then my iphone would send it off to a friend or add it up to my facebook page where I enjoy sharing the sketches with friends. I always placed them on my personal page rather than my art pages as I still wanted to keep them close, especially as they tend to be about my friends or my personal life.

So why make them more public? Interestingly, they have become part of my research study in a discussion relating to the framing of ideas. More so…… it has been great to receive lots of feedback from folks and that is as enjoyable for me as sharing the sketches. I do not have many early ones as they were all sent out in letters – you never know they might still have a few around if the content was directly about them or if they are as as much a ridiculous a hoarder of things as me.

Science Inspired Design

Science Inspired Designs by Eleanor – five in the Collection were previewed at FASHFEST. All designs are extracted from her research interests in science art (CSIRO + ANU), deconstructing the complex 3D images and reusing in beautiful repeat pattern. Artworks are available direct from Studio  E L E A N O R G A T E S T U A R T  Australia – likewise for other design projects and commisssions.

Insects walk the Catwalk: FASHFEST

Amazing ‘insects’ hit the catwalk in FASHFEST, as the science inspired insect prints were proudly showcased in the Scientist fashion theme. Almost ironic as the designs are 3D insect body maps … rewrapped as swimwear and stunning in their appearance. Five designs were selected from Eleanor’s collection, images that form part of her research at CSIRO (Computational Informatics Division) and the ANU (CPAS) reflecting her focus in science+art+technology.

Lab coat makes Catwalk – FashFest

Working on the ‘Scientist’ theme for FASHFEST has certainly thrown a different perspective on the research I normally undertake in my science art focus and one that is truly exciting. Seeing images take on a new aesthetic in the form of fabric design and applied to the FASHFEST scientist theme for swimwear is an interesting direction.

Admittedly the lab coats have crept into the spotlight and to be honest an image I have not attached to my work before given it is usually the science itself I have been focused on. However, seeing the fun that the public has in wearing the lab coats and taking on the persona of scientist in the learning environment at CSIRO Discovery Centre captured my attention.

Although the lab coats only have a few seconds appearance as the science inspired fabric prints and swimsuits are the main feature, I am already thinking about the potential of them in future concepts. Collaborators are most welcome.

3D Grassland goes fabric for FASHFEST

3D Grassland goes fabric for FASHFEST

The 3D animated ‘Grassland’ sequence provides the stunning design for one of the FASHFEST contemporary swimwear. The palm beetle and cicada (from the Australian National Insect Collection, CSIRO) are amongst the featured ‘stars’ in the designs, although they might be rather hard to find in the sheer brilliance and pattern of the printed fabric.

The other four designs are full of colour as you can imagine with such beautiful Australian insects as inspiration. These will be revealed on the night at FASHFEST.

There are also a suite of artworks from Grasslands as shown on Studio E L E A N O R G A T E S T U A R T Australia.

If you are interested in knowing more about Eleanor’s work – please contact her directly.

SCIENCE+ART+FASHION

SCIENCE+ART+FASHION … CSIRO+eleanorgatestuart+FASHFEST

Bugs make it to the fashion walkway at FASHFEST. Well sort of… Eleanor’s insect artwork is fused in a myriad of design as fashion fabrics for swimwear. A rather unusual brief and a very exciting challenge as one of the three artists selected by FASHFEST producer, Steve Wright, to contribute to the fashion event. Eleanor whose research with CSIRO and CPAS (ANU) specialises in using her art to illuminate science research and collaboration, such as, her designs for FASHFEST that focus on the 3D construction of insects for the Australian National Insect Collection (CSIRO) with the Division of Computational Informatics.

The FASHFEST theme of ‘Scientist’ fits perfectly with Eleanor’s own PhD research study in science and art, especially with her collaborative partnership with Dr Chuong Nguyen in their exploration of 3D printing of titanium insects and interactive exhibits, such as StellrScope.

The other designs will be under wraps until the FASHFEST event. Other collections of eleanorgatestuart can be viewed at www.eleanorgatestuart.net
