The first three NSW artists to participate in the Create NSW and Animal Logic Artist in Residence initiative will be Técha Noble, Jason Phu and Aemmon Sheehan.
These three artists will be supported with grants from Create NSW to complete their respective three-month residencies, which begin this month and run through to June 2020.
As well as providing professional development opportunities, Animal Logic will host a group exhibition to showcase the works of the resident artists.
Grainne Brunsdon, Incoming Head of Screen NSW commented, “This exciting initiative is designed to help artists expand their ambitions and scope of expression by learning new and innovative screen techniques that can be incorporated into their work. Each artist has a unique plan for what they want to achieve from their respective residencies, so we’re really excited to see the outcomes – and who better to inform this than the incredible team at one of the world’s leading animation studios.”
Animal Logic CEO and Co-Founder Zareh Nalbandian said, “It has long been our ambition to establish an artist in residence program at Animal Logic to create a deeper engagement between our artists and the wider NSW creative community. We’re excited to welcome Técha, Jason and Aemmon to our studio, and to have Ben Quilty’s inspiring mentorship and Create NSW’s invaluable support for the launch of this inaugural Animal Logic Artist In Residence program.”
“I think this collaboration could be ground-breaking for Australian artists. Having the support of one of the most internationally recognised creative companies will open up endless possibilities, and in particular for these three artists, who have such dynamic practice already, to be given that extra boost could be really profound,” said initiative ambassador, Ben Quilty.
