Whimsical, playful and nostalgic, DREAM MACHINES is a vibrant and joyful collection of new works by Rosa Fedele.
Unconstrained by conventional expectations Fedele’s work is genre-defying; slipping seamlessly between traditional portraiture and still life to vintage cars, Italian scooters and romantic beauties from the silver screen.
DREAM MACHINES will take you on a heartwarming and nostalgic ride through the countryside in your favourite classic convertible, Italian silk scarf billowing in the breeze and faithful hound by your side.

2021 hopefully marks a turning point for everyone, and Savanna’s Wearable Treasures has a different design direction for 2021.
Yes, Savanna’s back again after her 2020 sellout show. Her Wearable Treasures 2021 exhibition will have an emphasis on artefacts and collectibles from the Orient – the Middle East and Far East. Jade, coral, pearls, antique silver, ancient and excavated beads and glass will feature in her unique repurposed designs. Stunning gemstones like aquamarine, opals and jaspers, lapis and tourmalines, garnets and agates add to the artistic element. Every piece tells a story, and when you become a custodian, you’re part of the story.”
