Gemma Weston graduated with First Class Honours in Visual Art from Curtin University of Technology in 2007. Her interdisciplinary practice re-interprets found and familiar objects and images into allegories for contemporary connectivity and isolation. It combines drawing, assemblage, video and installation into a poetic parallel universe that quietly deconstructs our own. She has previously contributed work to a number of exhibitions including boom. (Spectrum Project Space, 2009), Windows on William (as part of SUBGANG, William Topp, 2008), For A Moment The Blissful Feeling of Being Able To See It All (Moores Building, 2008), First Page (publication and exhibition, Breadbox Gallery, 2004), The Fremantle Print Award (Fremantle Art Centre, 2007, 2008) and Backyard Cathedral (Keith and Lottie, 2008). In addition to maintaining an artistic practice, Weston recently co-curated The End (214 Willaim Street, 2009) - a short-term collaborative studio residency and exhibition - with Jamie Macchiusi. She lives and works in Perth, Western Australia.

For Rounds, Gemma has written an essay on George Egerton-Warbuton.
