We are a Brisbane based Artist duo who create unique ceramics and colourful, bold artwork. You will find our work in representing galleries, listed in our Etsy store of the same name, and available via personal commission (please contact us for prices and time frames).
LISA DIRIE - CERAMIC ARTIST
Lisa Dirie, a local Brisbane artist, is quickly carving a niche for herself with her instantly recognisable ceramic work. Both her love for art and her creative abilities cover many genres, however her true passion lies within the uniqueness of the fluid curves and strong angles that ceramic art delivers. With ceramic Green-ware as her canvas, Lisa creates resplendent, unique, and individual pieces that compliment any decor and serve a myriad of functions.
Vases, Platters, Plates, Jewellery Boxes and Lamps are just some examples of what you can expect to see within Lisa's range of collectables. Her signature style is bright and bold, blending comic book imagery with the fun accents of pop art, and even though the pop art inspired girls are her favourite to paint, her work is varied to meet the current styles and trends, ensuring it caters to every taste. Each image Lisa Dirie creates is as much the work of a devotee of pop culture, as that of an observer of life in general.
Lisa chooses to rotate stock regularly as opposed to exhibit in solo exhibitions. Her work proves as a successful impulse purchase for galleries and often sells successfully alongside other canvas works.
Lisa’s work is held in private collections within Australia, Papua New Guinea, and the U.S.
Lisa accepts commissions at the gallery’s discretion, and already does so through her representing galleries. Please contact your closest representing gallery to request a commission. A deposit must be placed for all commissioned works.
CARLY DIRIE - VISUAL ARTIST
Traditionally, Comic books and Pop art have influenced the majority of Carly’s previous works. Bold, colourful, and sometimes slightly controversial, she predominantly paints seductive, strong women from all walks of life, often marrying female fragility with alluring power. The artist’s ongoing love affair with comic books and the colour black is evident in the striking inky outline used to resolve the story behind each work.
Hailing from an artistic family, Carly Dirie is a self taught, Brisbane artist who enjoys creating paintings that aim to be points of discussion for the onlooker and ultimately lure them in. Because of this approach, she has completed several commissions for clients wanting that ‘personal touch’ when choosing intriguing art for their walls.
Jumping between matt acrylics, Indian inks, and other mixed media, Carly creates her painting concepts based on what she would like to see on her wall. She believes art is the purest expression of the homes inhabitants, and should not only attribute to the overall aesthetic of your interior but also trigger an inner emotion, which makes you smile each time you see it.
Carly is currently accepting commissions. However, please be aware that prices may be increased due to the fact that you are requesting something specific. Feel free to email Carly directly or contact your closest representing gallery to obtain a quote.
