Growing up on a remote farm in Margaret River where she forged a hard working and ‘can-do’ attitude, Jessica Ferguson was never afraid of an adventure, creating DIY projects in the surrounding forests. This philosophy carried forward to her careers, first as a successful travel adviser (and avid traveler) then as a photographer, a love of which grew from her desire to share her overseas experiences.
Found and Saw combines these two great passions in an exclusive exhibition for Bivouac. Jess has merged some of her favourite images from her recent culinary and photographic journey across Nepal and India, where she fell victim to the charm of the untamed subcontinent. Using found materials, Jess aims to minimize the environmental impact of her work while simultaneously recreating a rustic country aesthetic. This project was also born from her love of the environment, showing that art need not escalate the world’s pollution problems.
All pieces are lovingly hand-made one-offs and available for sale. Please contact Jess if you are interested in purchasing a piece.
Showing at Bivouac from the 27th August 2013 until Saturday 19th October 2013.

Meet our new kid on the cocktail block…..The Ramos. Made using one heck of a fine gin called Mahon which hails from Español. There’s a lot of mystery to this gin with only the family who produce the gin knowing all the secret ingredients but we can tell you the carefully selected juniper berries and aromatic herbs truly make this one amazing gin. With this delicious base we have blended ginger root, mint and freshly squeezed mandarin juice. YUUMMMM!
The name however is where we can have a little fun……check this guy out…..introducing one Sergio Ramos. Yes, he plays professional football for a Spanish team but we kinda thought that one sexy footballer matches one seriously sexy drink!
Newcastle born, Courtney Illfield first discovered her love for photography as a curious teenager. As a young adult she travelled and immersed herself in discovering the world from behind the lens. It Can Be Just That is a raw, spontaneous & playful journey through the eye & soul of the woman hidden behind the camera.
Courtney’s latest project took her around Europe, China and Japan and created the foundations of her current exhibition. Courtney’s ability to reflect on her personal and professional journey in everything she shoots has produced a range of emotive images that capture her lone perceptions of surrounding landscapes. It Can Be Just That has been printed entirely onto metal, reinforcing Courtney’s unique approach when photographing and presenting landscapes.
This is Courtney’s second solo exhibition and Bivouac is proud to be filling the walls with her glorious pieces from Tuesday 13th November, all pieces are for sale.
The Unforgettable Délices of Paris – an exhibition by Beau Est Mien
Artist Magali Dincher swapped the cobblestones, baguettes and fromage for the warmth, sand and ocean life in Perth in 2008. During this time she made another transition to a life dedicated to creativity and is now a teacher and owner of the creative business Beau Est Mien based in Perth.
Magali’s involvement with art consists of the simple pleasures taken in creating, handling and playing with textures and colours. Magali’s philosophy is to create things that she would like to make her own. Her work is almost naive and characterised by a childlike easiness and a simplification of the urban, social, natural and musical environments that surround her.
The architecture and buildings of big cities and small villages she has visited is what inspires her work the most. Magali specialises in several techniques of printmaking including etching, collagraphy, linocut and screen printing. Beau Est Mien works are sold in shops and galleries around Australia such as PG Printmakers Gallery in Melbourne and locally at the Fremantle Art Centre.
The Unforgettable Délices runs from Tuesday, 2nd October until Saturday, 3rd November 2012. All works are for sale and will be available to be viewed at Bivouac. For more information, please visit www.beauestmien.com.au
