Critical Time

Curated by Melissa McGrath, ‘Critical Time’ brings together the work of Western Australian artists Tom Freeman, Andre Lipscombe, Joana Partyka and Gemma Watson, ‘who keep time, waste time, or chronicle time, charting tempos through meditative, accumulating, and reflective practices’. Works include a 16-part work on paper created by dipping a piece of string in paint, recycled materials given new life with salvaged household paints, a suite of glazed ceramic vessels embodying the artist’s emotional states in their curves and divots, and A4 drawings using repetition to reclaim time.
