After 5 years on the ground floor, in June 2018 the RetireInvest Darwin team moved into our bigger and brighter new office on Level 3 of Carpentaria House.

We have received lots of positive feedback about the look and design of our new office space.

Artwork

Glen has a keen appreciation for the work of local Territory artists and has acquired a number of unique pieces of regional significance that are on display in the office.

We are pleased to share the profiles of these talented individuals below.

Cows by Shona Underwood

hwww.shonaunderwood.com.au

Shona Underwood now resides in Darwin after living and working on her family’s remote cattle station on the edge of the Tanami Desert for the past 7 years.

Her work reflects true Territory character in her landscapes and portraits, capturing their every level of existence, from the movement and survival of the ecosystem to the cattle herds of the north and the local Aboriginal people.

Being raised in the bush in the Northern Territory has given her a very deep understanding of the subject matter that she expresses so articulately on canvas. She is a very passionate Australian who shows the uniqueness of our environment, animals and people to the world and celebrates the Territory’s story and fascinating history. Her work is highly sought after nationally and Shona has recently been approached by some of the world’s top art galleries in New York and Italy for future exhibitions.

Night Cows by Geoff Todd

Geoff Todd is a well known artist in the north of Australia, Asia and Europe and his work has been included in contemporary art exhibitions across the United States, Austria, Hong Kong and Italy. In private collections his work is held by well-known identities within Australia and celebrities such as Hollywood actor William Shatner of Star Trek fame.

In 1984 Todd travelled across Australia to Arnhemland in the Top End where he worked for two and a half years with traditional Aboriginal artists. While the experience caused a new direction in Todd’s painting, it also stimulated his desire to travel abroad.
In 2004 Zebu Press published a comprehensive book about Todd’s life and work – “Looking North, the Art of Geoff Todd” – which offers much more biographical detail for interested readers.

Pandanis & Lightening Artwork by Wayne Lennox Miles

Wayne Lennox Miles is a born & bred Territorian, native of Northern Australia, and fiercely proud of it. First and foremost he is an accomplished photographer, sometimes-interior designer, sculptor and furniture maker.

Whilst he does not remember much of his childhood, he seems to recalls his first camera was an Olympus, and while he had no formal photographic training, an opportunity to produce a “coffee table” book early in his career opened many doors into the world of photography.

He claims, “growing up in the Territory definitely had an influence on my work, all that running around, bare footed and fancy free in a frontier town, a life experience that I think shows in my work. Early on I learned how to observe the weather conditions, this promotes an understanding of nature and it has therefore become apparent in my photographs and designs. However the main purpose of my work, has always been to stimulate others into using their imaginations, if anything I’m a story teller”.
