a miraculous memory

Fremantle Arts Centre, Fremantle WA 30 JAN —14 MAR 2010

Clare Daviesʼ magical room, a miraculous memory, drifts between abstraction and figuration, immersing the viewer in a scaled up, three-dimensional installation which emanated from a strange, small drawing. With voluminous and linear elements receding and encroaching, the miraculous appears potentially dark and awkward in this floating dreamscape.

Fremantle-based Clare Davies has long been intoxicated by the possibilities of dreams. An accomplished animator who has exhibited in the Fremantle Print Award, in this exhibition she turned her focus on the often under-valued material of paper.
