Wed 13 Nov - Fri 06 Dec 2019 'S Y N C H R O N I C I T I E S' - Sue Leeming and Britt Mikkelsen (Gallery B)
WA artists Sue Leeming and Britt Mikkelsen allow process and nature to guide their practice creating moments of synergy in an exhibition of paintings and sculptures that belie their obvious differences. These synchronicities are the still small voice that guide us as we make sense of the nonsensical in a broken world.
Wed 13 Nov - Fri 06 Dec 2019 'A Party Hat for St. Denis' - Dr. Matthew Jackson (Gallery A)
An exhibition of paintings by Matthew Jackson examining identity through the narrative interplay between truth, memory and imagination. The title of this series of work speaks to this weirdly redundant endeavour. Saint Denis, famously beheaded before being beatified, is often depicted as a saint with his detached head carried in his own hands. Suggesting a party hat for Saint Denis is both inciting a sense of ridiculousness, but at the same time posing the question; why should such tragic figures not be celebrated?
Wed 11 Dec - Fri 10 Jan 2020 'Describe yourself in one word' - Carla Adams (Gallery B)
In this new body of work, Carla Adams has asked 1000 matches on Tinder to describe themselves using only one word. Responding to the list of answers, that are either over the top confident or sexual or overly self-afflicting, Adams is holding up a mirror to the men who frequent dating sites. Adams’ work is aligned with feminist sculptural and textile practices and investigates how women navigate digital dating platforms.

Wed 07 Aug - Sat 14 Sep 2019 'HOLD ON' - Alex Maciver & Sam Bloor
Through a series of mixed media paintings and sculptural installations, the works in HOLD ON draw influence from subculture, anarchy, protests and stereotyping. The artists — each through their lens’ of influence and experience — individually experiment with layering of text, texture and image which represent the complexities and agitations arising from their cultural observations.
Maciver enlists a bold, abstracted style in his works which are accompanied by a series of floor standing sculptures, whilst Bloor mixes more formal text-based works, with banners, iconography and space altering installation treatments.
