‘Serenity’ [click the cover to activate the full screen reader]

Issue 6 is about ‘Serenity’ represented by the tranquil cover art of artist Natalya Aynsley. Our previous cover artist, Pia Young has contributed splendid landscape photography captured via drone. This magazine features one hundred per cent Australian content created by a diverse group of Australian writers, photographers, and visual artists. In a time where Australian artists need hope, my wish is that this content inspires our readers and makes you feel more connected.

‘Serenity’ is dedicated to every creative and entrepreneur who has been affected by the repercussions of COVID-19. My contributors and I have put together content to inform and uplift you while we all practise social distancing, and endure the hardships of isolation. Tanner Muller interviewed artist Danny Jarratt while Quyen Tran interviewed author Tanner Muller, and I’ve interviewed Brisbane-based singer Asabi Goodman. James Murphy reflected on rumination, inspired by author Daniel Levitin, in his State of Mind column, while Naomi Crosby and Kristen Dang contributed poetry and reflections to our Dolce category. Finally, with the rise in popularity of video conferencing and home recording, Jakub Gaudasinski has written a valuable article on optimising your audio setup at home in his Synthetica column.

Thank you for supporting the arts and for being a valued reader of my publication. Please enjoy our ‘Serenity’ issue and become a patron to keep artists and their stories visible.

Past Issues

ISSUE 5 – JAN – MAR 2020

‘Remarkable’ [click the cover to activate the full screen reader]

Issue 5 is about the ‘remarkable’ and this cover photo of one of Kangaroo Island’s natural wonders seemed fitting. Having featured visual artists on the cover of each of the 2019 issues, we’re featuring photographer Pia Young’s work as a tribute to the residents of Kangaroo Island affected by the Australian bushfires.

Australia is home to many remarkable arts practitioners and this publication aims to shine a light on as many as possible beginning with our Bravo feature artists Joanne Hartstone and Tom Kitney, whose partnership proves that one can have it all, true love and a successful and satisfying career.

We introduce our new team of writers who will be reviewing shows and interviewing artists in the Adelaide Fringe Festival. James Murphy is back with his State of Mind column and he interviewed Frankly ahead of her new show Frankly’s Wordrobe. Furthermore, Indianna Bell of Stakeout Films is our featured Dolce artist, and Jakub Gaudasinski of Synthetica Digital Audio reflects on his time as Sound Production tutor at the Australian Youth Orchestra’s 2020 National Music Camp.
