We are delighted to partner with Savva Savas on the “Three Food Memories” exhibition, celebrating the intricate relationship between art, food, and culture. This exhibition at Saint Cloche Gallery unites three culture-shaping artists from diverse backgrounds, each exploring their unique food memories through their artistic mediums, delving into how food nostalgia can enrich contemporary art. Saint Cloche proudly presents the works of Evi O, Toni Clarke, and Daimon Downey, showcasing an exhilarating intersection of art and cuisine. As part of the exhibition, Savva Savas will be recording an episode of ‘Three Food Memories’ with the artists.

Food anchors our life journey with aromas, tastes, and memories. "Three Food Memories" reveals how food guides us through life, love, and challenges, connecting us to the past, enriching the present, and inspiring the future.

Food is more than sustenance; it nourishes the soul and symbolizes hope. It intersects urban, regional, national, and cultural influences. Flavors reach deep within us, and sharing food creates moments of togetherness that define us.

"Meals make the society, hold the fabric together in lots of ways that were charming and interesting and intoxicating to me. The perfect meal, or the best meals, occur in a context that frequently has very little to do with the food itself." 


- Anthony Bourdain 

About Daimon Downey

Daimon Downey is a Sydney-based contemporary artist whose studio practice focuses on abstract and expressionist painting. With a background in music – a former front man for Aria award-winning band Sneaky Sound System – his art is loud, full of life, pace, and unabashed colour. The artist’s work has struck a chord with local and international clients for over 10 years, with a string of sell-out shows across Sydney, Brisbane, Perth, and New York. 

Rooted in fantasy and the imagination, the art is born in Downey’s studio overlooking Bondi Beach and invites the onlooker to feel comfort and happiness through its exploration of colour, balance, and form. It offers an escape from the mundane and often harsh realities of life. Each timeless piece is designed to be lived with, supplying its owners with a window for safety, pleasure, and escape. 

Downey has been commissioned to design artworks for some of Australia’s leading interior designers and hospitality operators including Byron Bay hotel Rae’s on Wategos, Ravesis hotel in Bondi, Matteo Downtown, Matteo Double Bay, and North Bondi Fish.


About Toni Clarke

Toni Clarke, an artist based in Northern Rivers, NSW, has exhibited her work since 2008, showcasing at esteemed venues like the Melbourne Art Fair and various Sydney galleries. Her artistic journey intertwines with her deep-rooted connection to the restaurant industry, which began at the age of 14 when she worked for a catering company to support her family. 

Having worked in restaurants across Sydney, London, and Byron Bay, including owning the renowned café Brown Sugar in Bondi, Toni's art reflects the vibrant energy of these culinary spaces. Inspired by her brother Sean Moran's iconic restaurant, Sean's, she channels her passion for fine dining into her artwork, notably through her series 'Ghost of the Roast,' featuring chickens painted on baking trays. 

Toni's diverse background as an actress in Sydney further enriches her artistic expression. Drawing from her experiences on stage, she infuses her paintings with theatrical storytelling, capturing the drama and excitement of restaurant life. Now a full-time painter, Toni brings to life the bustling atmosphere and cherished memories of restaurant life. Focusing on mark-making and the interplay of characters, her art resonates with audiences, evoking the joyous camaraderie and shared experiences of dining out. 


About Evi O.

Evi O. is an award-winning multi-disclipinary designer and self-taught artist. With a curious eye and mind, she is constantly exploring and observing her surroundings. Her art practice was initiated by a genuine personal drive to explore and express human curiosity and ultimately understand and further contribute to the bigger environment. 

Finely balanced colour is the cornerstone of Evi O’s practice, and her works are reduced and abstracted. Running a design practice that exposes her to varied dimensional, media and spatial challenges influence her artistic approach, where play of medium and materials become tools that convey the conceptual foundation. 

Art and design are conduits to her creative odyssey. She practices from Marrickville, Sydney servicing the world. 

Evi has been designing prized illustrated books for two decades. Her cookbook work gave her access to the minds of disruptive Australian and international chefs including Danielle Alvarez, Martin Benn, Lune, Tim Anderson and Phil Khoury, allowing her to enrich her knowledge on food as language. 

Each of her cookbooks is an artistic response to each chef's food practice and the versatility of her design practice has made her one of the most-sought book designers globally.
