The beauty and colour of Western Australian wildflowers inspired these paintings to incorporate design elements rather than as seen in the landscape

The Wild Swans Art Group from Western Australia would like to say thank you to all those people who have come to our exhibits across south east and east Asia being Malaysia, Okinawa and now Nishi Ku Kobe.
For this current exhibition a special thank you to Makiko Karitani for generously allowing the group to use her venue to exhibit the Peace and Harmony a without such generosity it would be hard to imagine that the group would survive as long as it has, so thank you and we will exhibit in further venues and as they come to hand our supporters will be notified in this blog.
Caspar Fairhall’s art practice covers painting, painted constructions, video and interactive video art. Best known for hard-edged but painterly works with rich surfaces, much of Fairhall’s work can be seen as asking questions of the viewer such as: What does it mean to represent space in an image? How does the space in an image relate to the space and time outside the image? What does it mean to both look into and at an image? The complex, layered paint surfaces and unresolvable pictorial spaces—what curator Margaret Moore described as propositions for perception—are tools that Fairhall uses to address these questions.
Much of Fairhall’s recent work is derived from his time in the Pilbara region of Western Australia and draws on the ancient banded iron formations of the Hamersly Ranges, which date from the Archean epoch 2.5 billion years ago. Both the sense of deep time and the biological origin of these formations are central concerns of this body of work.
Fairhall is represented in the collections of the National Gallery of Australia, Artbank, the Art Gallery of Western Australia and The University of Western Australia, amongst others.
