Nalda Searles – Finders Keepers

14 August - 31 October

Free

Curated by Sandra Murray

Nalda Searles is one of Western Australia’s most highly respected sculptors. She has exhibited widely nationally and internationally in a 40-year career. This pivotal exhibition embraces both previous and new works, drawing together a captivating representation of the artist’s extraordinary practice over the decades. With her uniquely Australian approach to craft practice, Searles has been the central instigator of an art movement based around the innovative use of Australian plant fibre and found objects from the landscape. Recycled textiles, salvaged clothing fibres, plants, and found materials transform into often exquisite, often menacing, yet always poignant, objects. In this artist’s oeuvre, nothing can be described as conventional. Searles has been a crucial figure in the development of contemporary sculpture, fibre and textile art in WA as well as nationally. Situated in the international context of IOTA, Finders Keepers shines a much-warranted spotlight on the artist.

Gallery Hours: Tuesday – Friday 10am – 5pm & Saturday – Sunday: 11am – 3pm
