IN THE MAY/JUNE 2022 EDITION

In this edition we feature the extraordinary work of Brisbane-born Chinese Australian artist Lindy Lee, whose extensive  retrospective Moon in a Dew Drop is touring from the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia. Commissioned to create the most expensive public artwork in Australia’s history, her $14 million work Ouroboros, is destined for the entrance of the National Gallery of Australia. The exhibition, covering her 40 year practice, will introduce audiences to key works across her career, from early photocopy artworks to recent installations and sculpture. 

Ted Snell explores the upcoming exhibition Wonders of the Worlds by Tony Windberg at Bunbury Regional Art Gallery, finding meticulously crafted works underlined by a rigorous intelligence which contemplate the past, the future, and our part in it. 

We visited the Revealed exhibition at Fremantle Art Centre, a not-to-be-missed representation of the pulse of new and emerging Aboriginal art across the state. The galleries are also brimming with red dots, as buyers eagerly await the associated online Revealed Art Market at the end of May for another chance to buy. 

Annette Peterson visited Mundaring Arts Centre to view four works selected from 17 artists to exhibit in the Shire of Mundaring Open Art Acquisition Exhibition. Curated by City of Fremantle Art Collection Curator Andre Lipscombe and Nyoongar artist Sharyn Egan, the selected works will be added to the Shire’s growing collection. 

Lastly, we mourn the passing of Fremantle-based artist Theo Koning, his life partner, Tommy Cordin, contributing significantly to this obituary.
