Miriam Stannage: Time Framed accompanies an exhibition of Stannage's work at the Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery, The University of Western Australia, from Saturday 30 July to Saturday 24 September 2016.
Miriam Stannage (b. 1939) is a relentless innovator. Her practice is founded upon a deep intellectual engagement with, and curiosity about, the challenges and nature of contemporary life. For the last fifty years, she has produced a dazzling range of works that resist easy categorisation.
Stannage has developed an aesthetic that celebrates the strange and beautiful that can be found in the everyday: from industrial building sites to suburban street verges laden with abandoned goods, and crumbling ghost towns as they disappear into the soil of the vast Australian continent.
Miriam Stannage: Time Framed provides analysis on this important contemporary artist’s work, exploring her use of words and symbols, and the concept of vision in all of its senses. This survey presents Stannage’s works, many of which have not been seen publicly, and documents the media she has worked in, specifically installation, photography, painting, video, prints and drawings, and artist’s books.
