Group Exhibition: A Magnificent World - Art Collector

Pia Bennett and Joshua Fitzpatrick, Apothecary Rose 1, 2011.Silk cut linoleum, gesso, ink and oil on board, 200 x 540cm

A Magnificent World brings together four Western Australian artists, Pia Bennett, Thea Costantino, Joshua Fitzpatrick and Anna Nazzari, to explore tales of sorcery, medieval miracles and the grotesque. Through varied media, each artist revisits these imaginings to uncover an evocative and fertile history of the absurd, fantastic and sublime.

Collectively the artists consider whether these early explanations are a naïve, anxious search for meaning, or perhaps part of a larger and ongoing desire to understand the unknown.
