Fremantle Arts Centre, 29 March — 20 May 2018
Sensual Nature is a sensory immersion into work derived from natural forms. The exhibition brings together twelve artists whose work both seduces and refuses through materialism, drawing on our need for nature while simultaneously aestheticising it. The seductive works in Sensual Nature bring to the fore organic forms that lurk beneath the conscious mind. Collectively, they reveal an entropic mis–en–scene of suppressed desires and fears.
Participating artists: Tane Andrews (NSW), Sarah Elson (WA), Penny Evans (NSW), Miik Green (WA), Juz Kitson (NSW), Lia McKnight (WA), Andrew Nicholls (WA), Julia Robinson (SA), Nalda Searles (WA), Holly Story (WA), Heather B Swann (ACT), Angela Valamanesh (SA)
Sensual Nature is developed from an original idea by Lia McKnight and curated by Dr Ric Spencer.
