IN THE JULY/AUGUST 2021 EDITION

In this edition we feature the work of Dwellingup artist Monique Tippett and her show at Holmes à Court Gallery in West Perth, My Darling ll: Orisons, a devotion or offering to the forests of the Darling Escarpment. Through her work, Tippett makes an impassioned plea to save the forest from further destructive bauxite mining. That she uses timber as her primary material, bringing its inherent beauty to the fore, only strengthens her plea.
A prolific artist who has also opened Lost Eden Creative in Dwellingup, a unique refurbished gallery space and residence, Tippett’s work is sophisticated and finely crafted.
Ted Snell reviewed the upcoming show at PSAS, Reent Toont Teent Toont Teent Toont Teenooneenoonee, by duo Stephen Brameld and Jay Staples who literally work together on the same artworks. The unusual exhibition title is from a Frank Zappa song Outside Now.
Laetitia Wilson reviewed The Alternative Archive at John Curtin Gallery, a massive undertaking to survey contemporary regional art by co-curators Anna Richardson and Chris Malcolm, Director of John Curtin Gallery.
Annette Peterson dropped in for a chat with Holly Meehan ahead of her show at Goolagatup Heathcote gallery, Defence/Defiance, unearthing not only a celebration of the land, but a conflict with it.
We spoke to Stephanie Reisch as she prepared for Australian Ghosts, her solo at Lost Eden Creative in Dwellingup, which explores the primal traces of nature and our relationship with places.
Lastly, the story of Pompeii is told in new ways, through its art, in a new documentary, Pompeii: Sin City.
