Visual arts: Caspar Fairhall | Nine Times the Space that Measures Day and Night

26 May — 15 July @ Fremantle Arts centre ·
Presented by Fremantle Arts Centre ·

Crisp, vibrant colour and rich surfaces characterise Caspar Fairhall’s (WA) paintings, which draw on both geometric abstraction and the often complex spatial structures of late Renaissance and Baroque art. The suite of large paintings in Nine times the space that measures day and night is conceived as a meditation on the nature of landscape and our place in geological time.
More broadly, Fairhall works across painting, video and interactive art. Making use of contradictions and paradoxes in visual illusion, his work often looks at the tension between our intuitions of space and time, and what we can understand about the world from science and philosophy.

His work is represented in the collections of the National Gallery of Australia, the Art Gallery of Western Australia, and numerous other public and private collections.

Sound: Rachael Dease | Like Embracing Ice

26 May — 15 July @ Fremantle Arts centre ·
Presented by Fremantle Arts Centre ·

The human ability to deny death and mortality mirrors our denial of climate change and the rapid destruction of the earth’s ice covered poles.

Accomplished WA sound artist and composer Rachael Dease spent a month in the Arctic Circle in 2017 during the midnight sun, sailing amongst the collapsing glaciers.

For Like Embracing Ice she has scored a work with audio captured from the depths of the Arctic Sea, using hydrophones floating under drifting icebergs and microphones lowered into glacial cracks.

Dease graduated with Honours in Composition from WAAPA. Her award-winning practice encompasses the realms of art music, pop culture, theatre and science.
