About Us

In 2011 two visual artists, Marty Wong and Tolmie MacRae met when their respective bands Meniscus and Mish performed at The Annandale Hotel. Their mutual interest in the visuals arts, performance and live music (and Marty owning a video projector) was the start of an ongoing collaboration that in 2013 officially became Tame the Pixels.

Tame the Pixels were founded on the understanding that a collective mind is greater than its individual parts. We’re open to working with fellow artists to incorporate more artistic forms into the collective, often calling on friends as collaborators when needed to achieve our creative goals.

Fellow collaborators have included Dennis Watkins (Sydney Opera House / newtheatricals), Paul Mac (Musician/Producer), Brendan Maclean (Musician), Matt Format (Performer), House of Mince (Club Promoters), Velvet Hammer (Club Promoters) & Tortuga Studios (In the Night Garden).

Tolmie MacRae is a digital artist predominately working in video.

In his current body of work the Oil Dancer series he is investigating the flow of light and time on subjects and landscapes. His first piece was a collaboration with a fan dancer where he looked for complimentary and juxtaposing lines of movement between differing frames, he then pulls those lines through each other. Like the cubists trying to represent every perspective of a subject or an object he tries to pull each frame of video through itself to see each frame at once yet evolve and flow over time.

He tries to present the subject as something that is timeless but real and immediate at the same moment. His work is about allowing people’s movements and actions to fold upon themselves so that past and present meet in various layers (generating a visual and temporal abstraction of the moment and the body).

His background comes from studying digital media at a fine arts college and also VJing – from parties to working with a progressive metal band to performing with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra to celebrate the Sydney Opera House’s 40th birthday. He tries to blend these different spheres, (allowing the ideas from the various subcultures to cross over and influence his art works).    

With influence from Oskar Fischinger, he tries to discover creativity in a form of abstraction through video. Other influences on his practice are James Turrell’s large scale light rooms and Bill Viola’s video installations as well as the works of Juraj Dobrović.

Tolmie along with Marty is interested in collaborations of all scales believing a project is greater than the sum of its parts.

Tolmie has been commissioned by newtheatricals, Erth Physical & Visual and Gallery Burlesque. He has also presented works for Tortuga Studios and dLux Media.

He is also a member of the Sydney progressive metal group MISH
