IN THE SEPTEMBER/OCTOBER 2022 EDITION

In this edition we feature the stunning exhibition, A Gentle Misinterpretation: Australian Artists and Chinoiserie at Fremantle Arts Centre. Conceived and curated by Andrew Nicholls, and seven years in the making, the exhibition centres on King George lV, one of the most famous fans of Chinoiserie – the Western appropriation of Asian aesthetics – and the extraordinary Royal Pavilion he built in Brighton. Thirteen artists have interpreted various fascinating aspects of George lV’s voraciously decadent life in the exhibition. 
 
Visitors will also be visually transported to the Royal Pavilion with a translation of actual wall treatments from the building by theatre designer Marek Szyler. 
 
We visited Joan Johnson and Hans Arkeveld, partners for more than 20 years, yet only now are holding their very first joint exhibition at Mundaring Arts Centre. 
 
Laetitia Wilson explores a new exhibition by the WA Fibre and Textile Association at Holmes à Court Gallery, the first in five years to have a juried selection. 
 
Mags Webster joins the Artist’s Chronicle this edition with a story focusing on Finnish/Australian artist Eric Hynynen, his background and modus operandi in the lead up to his exhibition at Stala Contemporary. 
 
We visited Mossenson Galleries to interview Peter Zappa ahead of his October show, and reveal a first in WA – the Stone to Art event held at Attadale Reserve. If you ever wondered how large blocks of stone become sculpture, this is your opportunity.
 
And we offer a sneak peek at Castaways Sculpture Awards held on Rockingham Foreshore and at Rockingham Arts Centre from 22 – 30 October.
