November OpeningNovember 4, 2017, 2:00pmWestEnd Art SpaceWestEnd Art Space presents four solo shows in November and warmly invites you to the opening drinks with the artists on Saturday the 4th of November between 2-4 pm.

LORNA CRANE presents 'The Memory Keeper', an exhibition of handmade brushes displayed along her works on cloth, paper and canvas.
From gathering native plant fibres from the idyllic far south coast of NSW, to collecting driftwood from this source, Lorna wraps and binds an assortment of materials to make her unique brushes. Twigs, driftwood, bamboo, pre loved brushes and other found materials become the handles. Various materials including ocean debris, kelp, plant fibres, feathers, yarn and cotton became brush heads. Each brush holds its’ own story. The story of the places the artist has inhabited and the love of Australian landscape.
Crane explains that her intent was to push the process of mark making further by creating a more personalised approach to her own visual lexicon. ‘By using the brushes it was like unlocking the language of landscape - of remembered times and places. Each brush holding its own unique feel and quality. A keeper of memories.’

Lorna Crane will be conducting a workshop in brush making. Please contact the gallery if you wish to participate.
Booking is essential.


In Gallery 2 DEANNA MOSCA presents 'Second Strand"
Mosca examines the human condition through yearning, loss, despair, and growth.
This is a collection of works of mixed media in acrylics and oils, painted with a sense of minimalism and expressionism to echo feelings of emptiness and fragility.
The raw canvas becomes a medium itself in becoming drawn from the surface and peeling back the layers.
'Second Strand takes me on a journey to a place where time and space doesn’t matter, it becomes a place where I’m home'.



FIONA HALSE presents "Allegory of Spring" in Gallery 3.
This solo exhibition at West End Art Space will showcase Fiona Halse’s new large abstract painting Primavera and smaller collages created in Berlin in 2016. The large painting that expands through Tachist marks and textures that move in a linear framework is contained through white passages of space on the canvas in what Klee refers to as ‘Endotopic’ and ‘Exotopic’ fluidity. This large Primavera painting is also contained in a small exhibition space. In this exhibition space a series of small collages accompany the Primavera painting, highlighting not only the difference in scale, but the fertile ground of ideas that was generated during two residencies in Berlin. The works connect as a pod in the space through Halse’s need to find structure and understanding through praxis and affective composition.
Halse’s work directly relates to the human figure and forms that convey internal feelings. The Allegory of Spring exhibition relates to personal feelings of elation, freedom and discovery.



'EMIC' presented by JESSICA LEDWICH explores our conflicted relationship with the body as an object of fetishisation and as a site of threat. Through the use of photomontage and sculpture, Ledwich explores notions of power, desire, possession and containment.
Presenting domestic interiors as the nexus between social discourse and female body culture, this work engages in a dialogue with the idealised, sexualised and abject female forms. Various images have been sourced from interior design magazines to create fantasy environments, which act as a site for female performativity. With the placement of a figure within a scene, these domestic spaces become psychologically charged. Aesthetics and materiality turn psyche into form, playing out an unknown narrative within a disjointed reality.
