Belinda Sinclair and Clairy Laurence explore the persistent shadow of myth and fable that reflects across infinity. Fascinated by fragments of folklore that bleed through time and space, their work is an evocative response to the world seen through the veil of superstition, folk beliefs, the occult and manifestations of the space between life and death.

Belinda Sinclair is an interdisciplinary artist working in Print, Sculpture and Mixed Media. Her current work has evolved from personal reflections on mortality and reflects an interest in the pervasiveness of memory and nostalgia in response to contemporary realities. A finalist in National Art Prizes in recent years including the Churchie National Art Prize, Ex Libris Artist Book Awards, CPA National Print Award and the Wilson Art Prize, Belinda has a long history of community arts involvement and teaches Printmaking at Brisbane Institute of Art and Brisbane TAFE.
