2. Emily Hunt – Bugaku Ballet, Enamel paint, collage & crystals, on found canvas. 72 x 60cm
Artist statement: Bugaku is a form of traditional Mask dancing in Japanese traditional performance.The ballet part relates to a modern interpretation, because I discovered that George Balanchine choreographed a ballet in the Bugaku style. I like to imagine the personalities in the painting love to dance.
3. Sharon Kitching – The Yellow Wallpaper, oil on canvas, 42 x 42cm
The title refers to the Charlotte Perkins Gilman story, The Yellow Wallpaper. Sharon transformed an unfinished, found portrait into a figure inspired by this short story.
4. Sarah Goffman – Face to Face, mixed media, 70 x 65cm
Sarah Goffman usually works in sculpture and installation; for Re:make she created a wall piece with an unfinished, found portrait.
5. Garry Trinh – Collection #1, set of 12 photographic prints (Digital c type print), dimensions variable
Garry Trinh created a photographic installation for Re:make, from a found 35mm negative. Collection #1 displays an enigmatic series of details, suggesting multiple stories. If you are Sydney based Garry will install this piece for you.
6. Simon Yates – This Painting is Bugged, acrylic on board, 94 x 78cm.
The artist’s intervention into the found still life print takes the form of insects: an interaction within the illusory world of the painting.

is known for her portrait photography: for Re:make she used the figures and landscape from a found photograph to create a beautifully atmospheric image. The photograph comes framed as pictured below.
