1. Eloise Trigg (b2005) Mermaid with juice box, 2010

In her search for meaningful context beyond that offered by contemporary abstract realism, Eloise Trigg has traveled to the West Coast and Quebec, looked at primitive cultures, surrealism, Picasso archetypes, and she has freshly created a kind of joyful new form of animalism. Yet, by allowing her forms and effects to evolve, as in process-oriented modernism, from medium and the act of working with it, Trigg has also succeeded in producing an art ripe with a sense of now - a certain complex, technological now, that is. Longing for renewed contact with a primal instinct, Trigg uses colour to establish the ubiqitous inner conflict of nature vs nurture and leaves viewers breathless with her tongue-in-cheek reveries.

Says Wendy Tsao of Child's Own Studio," I just love working with Eloise Trigg - she has an insight beyond her years and an energy I envy madly."
