Made In Perth
5th – 29th March 2003
Anna Schwartz Gallery
In this new exhibition ‘Made in Perth’, Jenny Watson continues her conceptual and formal exploration into a personal iconography of the intimate and the everyday; this time infusing a range of urban and country images with memory and a sense of the macabre.
‘Headlights Dance’ recalls a favourite scene from the movie ‘To Die For’, while ‘Selby 1955’ and ‘New York Bed’ recall past and present beds; ‘Emu with City Slicker’ and ‘The Birds’ some unexpected images of recent time spent in wild Western Australia.
Belgian linen, ribbon, oil and acrylic paint provide the supports for these modern day panoramas.
