This exhibition explores the enigmatic qualities and materiality of white earth pigments in Aboriginal artwork from the Kimberley (WA), Arnhem Land (NT) and Tiwi Islands (NT) in paintings, and three dimensional works.
As a medium that is tied to tradition, white ochre or gapan also provides opportunity for abstraction, minimalism and experimentation. Artworks explore the interaction and connection between art, earth, culture and identity, as well as metaphysical and ancestral elements. FORM invites you to attend the opening of Earth Matters FRIDAY 29th September 6PM—8PM
Sculptor and environmental artist Stuart Frost explores culture, myth and history in playful, ephemeral land art interventions. During a three month residency with FORM in Western Australia the British artist will turn his skill for crafting natural and forgotten objects into beautiful, paradoxical artworks, challenging perceptions and responding to our great southern continent in fresh, distinctive ways.
Is your child inquisitive, imaginative, persistent, disciplined and collaborative? These ‘good habits of mind’ are what FORM aims to encourage as part of our Creative Learning program: bespoke workshops for students of all
ages. In particular we look at the role of arts and culture in connecting people, community cohesiveness and giving people a sense of place and identity. We’re offering opportunities to explore the artworks of our exhibitons in ways which relate to the curriculum. Workshops are free but must be booked in advance. Please contact Lamis Sabra on email@example.com for bookings, times and dates.
