Taubmans Endure

Endure interior
Interior walls cop a lot of punishment especially when you have kids or pets. You need to be able to wipe away stains on your walls on an almost daily basis. It is important that the paint you use doesn't get left with a shiny patch or loss of colour due to constant wiping. Taubmans Endure Interior Walls is what you use when you need a paint with superior washability. It has Nanoguard Technology which means it has small and large particles that interlock, creating a strong protective shield so stains can't get a grip, so even if you wipe your walls constantly, there are no shiny patches. It also provides excellent mould and mildew protection throughout the life of the paint. This is why Taubmans Endure Interior Walls has been approved into the National Asthma Council Australia's Sensitive Choice Program and is the only interior paint currently sold in the Australian Market with a Lifetime guarantee*.
Endure exterior
Most people think it's the weather that breaks down exterior paint. It's actually dirt and pollution that works its way into the surface of the paint, weakens it, and then the sun, wind and rain finish it off. Taubmans Endure exterior paint is what you use when you need a superior performing paint that doesn't compromise on quality. It has Nanoguard Technology which means it has small and large particles that interlock, creating a strong protective shield so it's tough, repels dirt, and provides superior protection from the harsh elements; the sun, wind and rain. This is why Taubmans Endure exterior is supported by a Lifetime guarantee*.

In 1959 a small group of independent Victorian furniture retailers met to discuss the possibility of forming an association to maximise the effectiveness of their business in the face of increased competition from large, franchised organisations. As a result of this initial meeting, Newfurn Floor Coverings Ltd was formed. Thirty years later in 1993, they launched the Carpet Choice brand with 17 stores in Victoria. Since then, after a further brand update, Choices Flooring has rapidly grown to include more than 140 stores across Australia.

Since those early days, Choices Flooring has arguably become Australia’s most progressive retail floor coverings group and a major force in the Australian retail sector.

Jack Braudis

Born, 1948 in Boston, Massachusetts, USA, I grew up in an artistic household. As a teenager, I painted my first paintings in my fathers studio in the mid 1960s.

After graduating high school in 1966, I studied computer science at Arlington Technical Institute and then went on to the University of Massachusetts, enrolled in their Batchelor of Fine Arts program for painting.
In 1979 I met artist Maurice Kennedy. A “plein air” landscape painter who was a direct connection to an illustrious line of New England landscape and seascape artist going back 70 years. I studied and painted with Maurice for seven years. Always painting out of doors in all seasons and every kind of weather, I completed hundreds of painting and received an in-depth education in oil painting. It was also during this time I met and studied with portrait artist Paul Leveille.

I took on painting full-time in 1990. I ran my own gallery/studio at Rocky Neck artist colony in Gloucester Massachusetts from 1992 till 1995, and have been consistently represented in a number of regional galleries in Massachusetts.
Since the late 1990's I work almost exclusively in my studio. Working in “series”, I have evolved from pure representational painting to the current “lyrical abstraction” painting I do today.

I moved to Australia in 2009 and maintain a studio at the Lennox Street Studios in Newtown, Sydney NSW.

Jack was kind enough to loan us some pieces from his collection to create the pop up gallery in Hurlstone Park.

Japanese born, Central Coast based ceramic artist, Keiko works in porcelain and creates functional and non-functional objects. Keiko moved to Australia in 1999 and completed a Bachelor of Fine Art (Honours) degree in 2006 at the National Art School in Sydney.
Her work begins on the potter’s wheel and is then manipulated, cut and reassembled to evoke a quite and subtle abstraction. Making and reinterpreting objects is her focus. She pays particular attention to the form and proportion, the profile or outline of a vessel and the interconnectedness between the interior and exterior.
She had her first solo exhibition at Sturt Gallery in Mittagong in 2012 after exhibiting many group shows since 2003. Her recent achievements includes Gosford Art Prize (Winner in Ceramics, 2012), John Fries Memorial Award (Finalist, 2011) Small Art Object Prize in Vallauris, France (Winner, 2009) and the Woollahra Small Sculpture Prize. (Viewer’s choice award, 2008)
Artist Statement
Each ceramic object I create is part of me. I am communicating with myself, as I work on the wheel. I take pleasure in the process. Sitting on a wheel in silence is my meditative moment. When the clay actually becomes centred, my mind becomes “mu” – nothingness in Japanese.
My work is made from fine porcelain. It is extremely sensitive and responsive to the human touch when it’s soft. When fired, it becomes translucent and very strong. The nature of clay is endlessly fascinating.
I make a symmetrical shape on the wheel, and then alter the form by cutting and re-joining the parts. When putting the parts together with liquid clay, excess clay pushes out of the joint and makes a line like a human scar. I am drawn to the idea of an organic detail juxtaposed with the consistent lines of the wheeled form. It is like finding imperfection in our everyday.
I seek simple beauty in my work.

Keiko was kind enough to allow Shaynna to select pieces from her collection to complete the pop up gallery space in Hurlstone Park.
