Twelve Australian female artists have been invited to participate in onefourfour which sees them create one work a month for one year. Every artist is assigned a month to choose a theme that all the artists work to, and the results are posted on this site at the end of each month. The only restriction is that the work is to be 6 x 6″. This small canvas size was chosen so it’s a quick and fun exercise and doesn’t become a daunting task to create a piece every month. An interview with one of the artists will also be featured on this site every month so you can learn more about them, their arts practice, and their processes.
onefourfour was created and curated by Melbourne artist Ilona Nelson. The project was designed to encourage the artists to experiment with new mediums and keep creating regularly to allow their practices to grow. There is a wealth of talent in Australia and onefourfour supports women artists by creating opportunities to collaborate with peers, create new work and promote their art.
