Time and Tide is an exhibition of new works from popular, young Margaret River artist Alice LinfordForte and Western Australian sculpture artist Lesley Whitham.
Alice explores time and place through her work as she travels the globe constantly inspired by culture, the places she visits and lives, oceans and skies. Travelling for her is a constant reminder to live with some abandon but to stay responsive and this is reflected in her beautifully coloured and vibrant works.
Lesley originally studied in Scotland and now lives and works in the south west of Western Australia.
Using simple iconic symbols of fish, boats, trees and other elements that resonate with her Lesley, aims to convey notions of passing time and life’s journey. The personal experience of migration, Motherhood and creative pursuits feature in my sculptures so each piece has its own story.
Together they are inspired by time and place and the journey of life
These new works from both artists are stunning and personally moving.
The Exhibition will be opened by Peter Klinken Chief Scientist of Western Australia
