A new study published in the British Medical Journal suggests engagement with the arts could have protective influences on life expectancy. PREMIUM: Subscribers only Read More IN THE MAY/JUNE 2023 EDITION In this edition we feature the exhibition Dispersion at Zig Zag Art Gallery in Kalamunda where six public artists scaled down to present a show based on light, colour and shadow, allowing the luxury of experimentation on a smaller scale, or to return to earlier tracts of thought, far from the restrictions of working to public art briefs. The result is a stunning exhibition where the play of shadows, colour and light spill out from sculptural works into the gallery environment. We celebrate Diane and Dan Mossenson’s three decades as gallerists of Indigenart-Mossenson Galleries in Subiaco, with the story of the gallery’s origin and insights into the philosophy of their gallery journey. Annette Peterson explores the unique collaboration of Tanya Singer, Errol Evans and Trent Jansen for the exhibition Kurunpa Kunpu at Fremantle Arts Centre. We publish answers to your questions to Director of the Art Gallery of WA, Colin Walker. The full list of questions and answers can be found on our website. As the closing date for entries to the 2023 Castaways Sculpture Awards looms close, we spoke to winners from last year and their experience of both being in the exhibition and winning. Lastly, we spoke to one of Western Australia’s leading abstract artists, John Teschendorff in the lead up to his exhibition Echoes of Place at Holmes à Court Gallery. The exhibition represents ten years of work, and the culmination of his ongoing project, The History of Ideas. Known for his geometric abstraction, the exhibition marks a turning point in his practice, where the landscape edges towards the identifiable.
