▶ LORRAINE GUDDEMI, Raspirical Things
“Using the language of the magical and talismanic, Raspirical Things are a collection of sculptural forms that explore the ephemeral nature of female desirability. Harnessing the fragility and bone like quality of porcelain, these forms express this poignant loss of beauty and celebrate the ensuing liberation from the conformity of male desire.”

▶ C.MOORE HARDY, Sydney, Sex & Subculture (historical, hysterical, & happy recollections of the queer community)

“Over the last thirty-five years, I have worked extensively as a freelance commercial photographer and voluntarily in cultural development positions for Lesbian and Gay community groups. I attempted to create images that engaged in an erotic dialogue reconstructing a visual narrative, and have followed the battles, rallies, sorrow, resilience and diversity of the queer community.”
