David Walker: Anatomy of the object
Until 18 October 2009

David Walker is one of Western Australia’s most accomplished and influential designers and craftspeople. David Walker: Anatomy of the object will reveal Walker’s profound fascination with the skeletal form as a vehicle for spatial and structural explorations, and his abiding commitment to find a form of expression born out of a sense of Australia.Works from the State Art Collection, private lenders and public institutions, as well as the artist’s personal collection, will be included.

Mari Funaki, works 1992-2009
Until 18 October 2009

Mari Funaki is one of Australia's leading jewellers. This exhibition celebrates her considerable achievements between 1992 and the present day. Her first major show in a state gallery, it includes nearly fifty works and will be the first time Perth audiences have seen her work in such depth. Many of these are new works produced especially for this show.

Wall works
Helen Smith &
Jeremy Kirwan-Ward
Until 31 January 2010

These two well-known and highly regarded Perth based artists have created an art work in situ. The work creates an architectural intervention in the visitors’ area between Galleries One and Two. It references both traditional and contemporary notions of beauty and nostalgia. A combination of wall paper and hard edged painting will be applied directly on the gallery walls, resulting in a work that can be read as both a quasi-painting and a domestic interior.

Helen Smith is a member of the AC4CA group of artists responsible for public art projects using various buildings in Fremantle.
