Tom Freeman @ Venn Gallery

Event Title: Formative.
Participating Artists: Tom Freeman.

Venn Gallery,
16 Queen Street, Perth.

Description: Formative is a collection of new paintings and sculptural works by Western Australian artist Tom Freeman. In this latest body of work, Freeman continues his interest in familial history, nostalgia and place, developing a carefully considered series that explores the possibilities of process and materials.

The works are all studies of the Kettering Library in the UK, where the artist's grandfather began his role as librarian in 1953. Freeman documented the interior architecture of the library on a recent trip and these photographs inform the series of paintings and sculptural works.

Form, colour, process and surface as well as an array of materials including acrylic and oil paint, pine, plaster and beeswax have been explored in Formative.

Dates: 12 April 2013 to 10 May 2013.
Opening Times: Tues - Sat, 10am - 5pm.
