SUBLIME TESCHENDORFF ART AT PS ART SPACE

Posted in art, city of fremantle, exhibition, ps art space, Uncategorized by freoview on August 1, 2017

 

 

John Teschendorff’s show REMNANTS at Fremantle PS Art Space in Pakenham Street is outstanding and should not be missed.

The History of Ideas Project 1997-2017 is an exhibition of abstract works that examine aspects of border conflict, war, religious bigotry, democratic process&guilt….even terror, torture and death are interrogated beneath deceptively seductive abstract surfaces.

There are also collaborative works with Annette Seeman and Stephen Spurrier in the show.

I was quite overwhelmed by the intensity and deep mood of the artworks and the very high painterly quality of them.

Teschendorff’s art has been widely collected by all major galleries in Australia and I hope they’ll purchase a few more work from this exhibition.

The exhibitions is open till August 26. If you don’t see another exhibition this year, make sure not to miss this one. It’s one of the best art exhibitions I have seen for years. It’s sublime!

….and while at PSAS hop in at my mate Tom’s Studio 37 cafe for great coffee and food.

After five years in WA American artist Audrey Tulimiero-Welch is returning home to the US.

She has a range of gorgeous artworks for sale from large canvases to smaller works on paper.

Over the past 15 years Audrey has been documenting her journey of Place as she explored, lived, and created in various locations around the world including Sumatra, Bangkok and Perth.

Audrey’s painting journey of her time in Perth is influenced by the topography of Western Australia, mapping Place through line, gesture, and colour.

Of her artwork she says “My works speak to ideas of transience and finding ones place. They attempt to comment on the process of immersion into a new country, with unfamiliar customs and codes. Similar to how cartography locates place, I use line, color, and layers to locate an abstract topography, leading the viewer to sites that are familiar and obscure, personal and universal”

Come along today, Friday from 6-9pm or Saturday 23rd July 11-4pm, Sunday 24th July 11-4pm and check out her work. The exhibition is at  Studio 33 at Artsource in the Old Customs House,  8 Phillimore St, Fremantle.

BEC JUNIPER SHOW AT LINTON&KAY

Posted in art, bec juniper, exhibition, fremantle by freoview on April 21, 2015

Fremantle artist BEC JUNIPER‘s latest exhibition Strange Passion will open today in Perth at the Linton&Kay Gallery in the Old Perth Technical School at 137 St George’s Terrace.

This is what Bec has to say about her show:

I’m always amazed that Australia is a couple of Billion Years old and at any point while you’re out there in the field you could be walking on ground that has seen that amount of time pass by. In this exhibition I’ll be looking at ancient living rivers formed sometime before the continent separated from Antarctica, and places such as the sedimentary basins of the Murray, Gippsland and the Eucla. I’m thinking about rivers flowing backwards into the land, and the cretaceous period where Australia was divided by inland seas.

These things I explore with materials mimicking the water, the erosion constructing and deconstructing to resemble the event itself.

‘Strange passion’ is about my ongoing obsession with the landscape. It’s also framed by the paradox of being in such a young colony surrounded by unrivalled antiquity in the landscape, and viewing my place here in consideration of the original inhabitants.

Some confusion lies in the harshness and challenges to live in parts of this country, as experienced from the point of white settlement, the strangeness, the mystery, the dust, the bones and the ghosts. And one is easily bewildered through the warping of time and scale collectively etched into the landscape and memories of all who have ventured out there.
