15 August - 18 October 2015
A new annual program dedicated to displaying the work of Western Australian artists, WA Focus showcases recent and new work by local artists, selected to represent a mix of gender, experience and medium.
AGWA will work closely with Western Australian artists and the art community to present exhibitions that display the range and depth of our state’s creative talent.
Helen Smith’s practice spans painting, photography and site specific installation that incorporates a minimalist approach to geometric forms while reflecting her interest in social and cultural systems. Her working method is the same across the various media she employs and derives from her view of each work as a container for the idea.
Paintings and photographs selected from the Collection are shown together for the first time to demonstrate the subtle inter-relationship of these two streams of her practice, alongside new paintings
