Description

Perth audiences will have the opportunity to view photographic, video and sound-based works by this major artist. Thompson interweaves themes of identity, race and history with his lived experience. Christian Thompson: Ritual Intimacy explores the unique perspective and breadth of Thompson’s practice from the fashioning of identity through to his ongoing interest in Indigenous language as the expression of cultural survival.

Featuring a major commission created for this exhibition, Christian Thompson: Ritual Intimacy surveys Thompson’s diverse practice and is also accompanied by the first monograph on the artist’s work, including essays by Brian Catling RA and Professor Dame Marina Warner DBE, CBE, FBA, FRSL. The specially commissioned installation is an ambitious multichannel composition, developing the sonic experimentation that is a signature of Thompson’s work. Incorporating Bidjara language, it will invite viewers into an immersive space of wall-to-wall imagery and sound: “Bidjara is officially an endangered language but my work is motivated by the simple yet profound idea that if even one word of an endangered language is spoken it continues to be a living language,” Thompson says.

Jenny McGrath

My paintings capture those moments of quiet solitude that rejuvenate the sense of joy in life, inspired by my love of the raw natural beauty.

  • Represented Artists:Jenny McGrath
  • Galleries:Painting,Art Gallery

Details

  • Open Days:By Appointment Only

Description

Living in Western Australia with so much stunning scenery has generated my passion for painting.  I love the beauty found in nature and I use a visual language of colour, form, and texture to emphasise mood, feelings and expression.

 

My paintings often explore the relationship between nature and the elements, capturing those moments of quiet solitude that rejuvenate the sense of joy in life.  Inspired by my love of natural beauty each image is an exercise in meditation, enabling the viewer to lose themselves in the study of form, colour and atmosphere.
