Belinda Fox's exhibition (developed during the height of a global health pandemic) explores the fragility of a fragment(ed) world. Her works responds to this time of uncertainty with delicate images of profound beauty.
After bushfires which ravaged large parts of Victoria and New South Wales in 2019/20, Fiona Hiscock considers the fauna impacted by these catastrophic events through loss of habitat. Her large scale ceramic vessels provide the canvas upon which she paints a range of native bird species and plants from coastal Victoria, from far east Gippsland to the Otway forest.
Throughout European history, literature, music and theatre, the black swan has been attributed with dark symbolism, having a sinister and seductive association with evil. In this her first solo exhibition at Gallerysmith, Fernandez repositions the swan, and other emblematic flora and fauna representative of Western Australian identity, as trenchant symbols, to explore dark undertones of the state's brutal history.
Gallerysmith is delighted to present Lori Pensini's solo exhibition at Gallerysmith this November.
