Sub Rosa


2 September - 1 October, Tue-Fri 10am-4pm, Sat 10am-2pm. Closed Sat 17 Sept.

A spatial encounter between two senior Western Australian artists. Smith and Richards respond to the theme of concealment and secrecy. In Sub Rosa the duo have elaborated site specific works drawn from their current practice.

About the artists
Trevor Richards is a Fremantle based artist whose practice encompasses painting, sculpture, video, photography and installation. He is widely recognised for his formally structured, minimalist approach to painting that is informed by his sustained engagement with a limited range of colours and an admiration for the commonplace.

Helen Smith’s practice is influenced by a formal, minimalist view-point with simplicity of form and geometric abstraction generally contributing to the outcome. Oil on canvas paintings, large scale wall works and a number of ongoing photographic series derived from an interest in social and cultural systems form the basis for her enquiry.
