Alison Mooney

Regeneration

Time slows as you look into it and offers perspective.

Delight invites you in as it radiates momentarily from a yellow tinted sunbeam bouncing off a wave.

Screeching rainbow lorikeets remind you to say ‘hey’ to your neighbour while watering the plants at sunset.

Here we’re led by the example of life.

The life that moves and swirls and squawks and splashes around us.

Led on how to fill these moments with as much of it as we can, and sit in appreciation of the quiet, slow ones.

Jim Cox

Monsterio with ‘cathedral lights’

Jim Cox lives on the Sunshine Coast Hinterland where he paints, illustrates and occasionally sculpts.

His inspiration has always been nature. He presently seeks to capture the magic of his rainforest and wilderness environment.

Jim is passionate about Australia’s flora and fauna, and through his work he encourages all to know and appreciate our unique heritage.

Kym Tabulo

The Richmond Birdwing Butterfly and Vine (2020)

Our local flora and fauna are incredible. This is the Richmond Birdwing butterfly (Ornithoptera richmondia), which is one of Australia’s largest butterflies at 125mm, and is found here in the Mooloolah River National Park.

This is the male feeding on a flower and holding his wings together to show us the yellow, blue and black patterns of their underside. When open the wings display iridescent green or blue markings. The size and colour of the male makes him a striking butterfly as he flies and glides through the forest. So look out for him. What do you think the female of the species looks like?

Spirit of the skies

Harmony is part of the habitat of the Yellow-Tailed Black Cockatoos where they have soared through the skies for centuries. As they fly over their loud screeching makes us look up to the Australian sun and the sky providing us with a sense of belonging and pride that connects us all.

This colourful abstracted landscape is overlaid with stylistic details of the Yellow-Tailed Black Cockatoo reflecting the vibrant, multifaceted lifestyle of the Sunshine Coast. The indigenous meaning of the Yellow- Tailed Black Cockatoo; nurture, joy, spirit, emotional freedom, inner fire and creativity reflect the vision for the Harmony Community.

LANDscans

As a kinetic artist I generate art by capturing through rubbing and scanning the surfaces of the world. LANDscanning or digital frottage is a process based artform designed to photographically photocopy and capture the invisible and over looked surfaces and textures that surround us everyday.

I physically explore and document using a hand held scanning tool to touch surfaces, so what I touch you see, visually recorded. Sometimes I scan and record metres at a time, capturing the experience and essence of the surface rather than just a representation. This serendipitous process means these are one-off images never to be captured quite the same again.

Pam Walpole

The play of water, waterlilies and native flora, creates a restful haven – a place to ponder – a home for nature’s creatures – local frogs, lizards and dragonflies – all living in harmony.

Sunshine Coast artist Pam Walpole has a history of contemporary landscape painting, inspired by her love of the outdoors is the catalyst for her bold, often minimal style that reflects the character of
the surroundings.

Shyanne Clarke

As a multidisciplinary artist, I incorporate painting, illustration and photography into digital collage with a positive focus on nature and humanity.

In this piece, via illustration I honour the native Australian flora that grows abundantly in this region. Through photography, a celebration of the ocean, mountains and rainforests. Pink dots as footprints symbolise generations of families past, present and future. Nestled amongst these elements, sits a rainbow of bold strokes, a symbol of harmony, the heart of the Sunshine Coast.

Steven Bordonaro

Our Home. Our Community. From the Hinterland to the Coast.

The spirit and vibrancy of community and togetherness exudes in a friendly, joyful and welcoming depiction of life in Harmony.

This simple and playful, but expressive and bold, abstract mural encompasses and depicts our modern way of living with its interaction of our enviable lifestyle and community pride that we enjoy and share on the Sunshine Coast.

From the beach to the hinterland, our local attractions and geology, nature, fauna, family and adventure, along with our rich indigenous history, can all be discovered in this colourful dynamic representation of living in Harmony.

Gus Eagleton

Your Point of View

A first-person perspective of the beautiful Glasshouse Mountains located on the sunshine coast. A reminder to look on the brighter side of life and take the time to enjoy the moments that may get overlooked.

Australian Artist Gus Eagleton creates interpretations of reality and beauty within the urban landscape. With a selected colour palette and fluid lines, he manipulates light and shadow in an unrealistic and romantic way. He paints with considered velocity and magnetism, yet simultaneously the pieces embody slowness, a dreamlike feel.
