Helen Smith & Jeremy Kirwan-Ward Installing the Wall works at the Art Gallery of WA
These two well-known and highly regarded Perth based artists have created an art work in situ. The work creates an architectural intervention in the visitors’ area between Galleries One and Two. It references both traditional and contemporary notions of beauty and nostalgia. A combination of wall paper and hard edged painting will be applied directly on the gallery walls, resulting in a work that can be read as both a quasi-painting and a domestic interior.
Helen Smith is a member of the AC4CA group of artists responsible for public art projects using various buildings in Fremantle.
Wall works will be on display at the Art Gallery of Western Australia
until 29 March 2010
