WHAT

Pink Ember Studio is a queer-run non-profit art space in Coburg

WHO

Frances Cannon

Frances Cannon (she/her) works predominantly in drawing and painting in ink, gouache and watercolour. Much of her work focuses on the body and the psyche and can be viewed as diaristic, as it is primarily based on personal experience. Frances’ work examines what it’s like to be a woman in contemporary times; looking at ideas of body-love and body-loathing, anxiety, relationships, sex and sexuality, gender, and bodily functions.

Gemma Flack

Gemma Flack (they/them) is a tattooer, artist, zinemaker and musician making work about cute and angry femmes; exploring themes of identity, vulnerability, feminism, gender, mental health, queerness, self-discovery, and coming to terms with the concept of existing as a human. Their tattoo work is a celebration of colour, joy and gentleness, with a focus on reclaiming and relating to the body, and decorating our transient vessels with our identities.

Aaron Billings

Aaron (he/him) makes work featuring the male form, particularly the feminised male form. Aaron focuses on versions of masculinities that mess with gender representation, alternatives to capitalism, and resisting homogenisation. His work through the medium of zines, comics, books, and textiles ties in to queer art through history, exploring queer political power and agency, and resistance to heteronormative ways of seeing.

WHY

As uninvited guests, we proudly acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the land on which our shop is located and on which our resident artists do their work. Our organisation directly benefits from the oppression, dispossession and colonisation of Aboriginal and Torres Straight Islander people. We pay respect to Elders, past and present.
Always was, always will be Aboriginal Land.

Pink Ember Studio is a queer-run co-operative, creating spaces for artists to make work and be part of a community. We are a not-for-profit, encompassing workshops and classes to share skills in our community, a multimedia gallery space, and light filled open plan studio spaces.
We opened our doors in December 2018, and are striving towards making an exciting space in Coburg that supports artists and provides access to affordable art and learning opportunities. Concession rates are available for any First Nations folk who wish to partake in workshops.
