Shine Light On

16 October - 19 October

Fryderyk Framroze Mehta Stitched Spells, embroidery, dimensions variable.

Artists

Fryderyk Framroze Mehta

Description

Featuring zoomorphic and divine-being bronze sculptures, and embroideries described as ‘stitched spells’, Inez Edwards and India Mehta have brought together the work of their late father. Alongside, and in dialogue with her father’s works, Inez exhibits a new body of work.

Fred spent much of his life living between family in India and Australia, crafting works at the Ram Chhatpar Shilip Nyas Art Centre in Varanasi. Drawing from his Polish and Parsi heritage, Zoroastrian religion and iconography, he said that his work aimed to visualise ‘the ethereal countering the dehumanised and inhumane forces.’

Shine Light On weaves together many threads: Fred’s work coming home to Fremantle from Varanasi, illuminating his work in the light of current events, and Inez discovering in Fred her biological father.
