Kati Thamo

Kati explores the natural world through holographs, linocuts, etchings and shadow prints. Born in Perth to Hungarian parents, Kati's art is often imbued with her Eastern European heritage.

  • Galleries:Artist Studio
  • Open Days/times:BY APPOINTMENT ONLY

Details

  • Open Days:By Appointment Only

Description

Born in 1956 in Perth, Western Australia, to Hungarian parents, Kati studied art at Edith Cowan University and the Hobart School of Art, majoring in printmaking. Since 1980 she has lived mainly on the far south coast of WA, working from her home studio. The telling of tales has always been integral to her art practice, and she draws on personal stories and incidents along with grander narratives to devise a form of visual fable. Using a cast of characters including animals and objects, her storylines describe the mystery, frailty, hopefulness and anxiety of life. She says, 'I often think of my images as small theatre settings where various dramas are enacted'. Kati's art is often imbued with her Eastern European heritage, and a journey to trace her migrant family's homelands in 2010 is reflected in subsequent exhibitions, and in the development of a series of works.

More recently, Kati has been exploring the natural world, looking at ways to depict the fragility and complexity of natural ecosystems.

Kati's work has been exhibited nationally in both solo and group exhibitions, and is held in numerous private and public art collections in both Australia and overseas.

Doing Time at Fremantle Prison

Fremantle Prison holds the key to history, mystery and fun. Step inside and do time on a fascinating Prison Day Tour, Tunnels Tour adventure or spooky Torchlight Tour.

  • Historical Sites:Prisons
  • Open Days/times:Mon - Sun 9AM - 5PM

Details

  • Open Days:Thursday,Friday,Saturday,Sunday,Monday,Tuesday,Wednesday
  • Facilities:Cafe

Description

Fremantle Prison is one of Western Australia’s premier tourist attractions and is the first building in the State to be inscribed on to the World Heritage list.

The Prison was built by convicts in the 1850s and was used as a place of incarceration for almost 140 years. Decommissioned as an operating maximum security gaol in 1991, the empty prison with its solitary cells and gallows is a monument to a system of punishment that is uncomfortably recent.

If the walls of the Prison could talk they might tell stories of loneliness, pain and suffering.  As a place of execution between 1888 and 1984, 43 men and 1 women were hanged there.

Step inside and do time with Fremantle Prison’s experienced guides on a range of Prison Day tours around this fascinating site. Daring escapes and colourful characters feature in tales laced with prison humour. Artwork on cell walls speak volumes, from the classical to the vibrant Aboriginal images.

Visitors with a spirit for adventure can explore the one kilometre labyrinth of tunnels built more than a century ago under the Prison on a Tunnels Tour. Equipped with hardhat, overalls, boots, headlamps and harnesses visitors are locked into the ladder system and descend 20 metres into the depths below.  Skilled guides lead the trek through dry sections of the tunnels by foot, then visitors board replica convict punts to explore the submerged passageways accessible only by boat.

For a spooky experience you can’t go past an eerie Torchlight Tour. Cringe at the rotten, the wretched and inhumane as the tour guide delves into the darker side of the Prison's history. Be warned – there are a few surprises along the way and these tours are not for the faint hearted.

Bookings are essential for Tunnels Tours and Torchlight Tours, call (08) 9336 9200.

Description

Fleur Marron is a West Australian based Independent Artist who specializes in creating artwork via private commissions. With ten years experience in project delivery, Fleur has developed a process for clients to commission work, optimizing client satisfaction whilst not compromising the creative validity of her work.

Fleur spent 1999-2010 working predominantly in energy science, consulting to mining companies across Australia.  This work took her to some of the most remote parts of Australia.  Throughout this time she always painted.  In February 2010 she committed to painting as a profession, and she continues to strive for technical excellence.

Fleur’s body of works may be categorized into a number of series, namely: Vast Country of Mine; Swanning About; The Art of Marriage®, and Portraits. These series’ have been developed over a number of years, and satisfy different sides of Fleur’s creative outlook. All works are custom designed on Belgian linen, using a selection of oils, acrylic, ink and 24crt gold leaf. In December 2010 the Childhood series will be launched, which will offer limited edition artwork for children of all ages.

The series’ explore different themes, composition and colour. Vast Country of Mine deconstructs the natural and the built Australian environment and reconstructs it into a semi surreal landscape; Swanning About explores the human condition in an ever changing environment by capturing the Swan and Canning rivers as a stage and evoking a human spirit within its subjects; The Art of Marriage explores the importance of finding happiness in simple pleasures on the domestic front; and the Portraits series focuses on the story of individuals in the presence of others who are introduced as guests in the story line. Some guests are there for a reason, others for a season, and there are guests who stay a lifetime.

The following portfolio shows a sample of works created under these series’ and also lists works created independently of these series’. The majority of pieces in this catalogue are sold, or held for exhibitions and private collections, as marked.   Works are continually being produced though not all will be shown in this portfolio if part of an upcoming exhibition. If you are interested in any of the work in this catalogue please contact Fleur Marron via email [email protected]
