12 Paul Rigby Gallery and Studio
Title Supreme Harmony – Hong
Kong Rugby Sevens
Artist Paul Rigby was an award-winning
Australian cartoonist who worked for
newspapers in Australia, the United
Kingdom and the United States.
The artwork This piece was painted in
1997, the year that sovereignty
over Hong Kong was transferred
back to the People’s Republic of China.
Rigby had a long association with
China. He was among the first western
media permitted into the country in
1958 after the Communist Revolution.
He saw more than a little irony in the
‘end of empire’ and depicted some
rather entertaining changes to many
British institutions in the colony in his
Supreme Harmony series – including
pieces on the Hong Kong Yacht Club,
Hong Kong Cricket Club, exclusive
club life and, of course, the annual
international Hong Kong Rugby

Title Afternoon Shades Bunker Bay
Artist Michelle Gelmi takes her
inspiration from the beauty of
the South West and North West
regions of Western Australia.
Her bold use of colour and space
emphasise the landscape and lifestyle
of these unique areas.
The artwork Afternoon Shades
Bunker Bay depicts the play of
light and shadow on the rocks
and trees, which become sculptured
by the wind.
