RE-TURNING POINT - AN EXHIBITION BY
31 October -15 November 2009

Eve Arnold transforms industrial sheets of metal into works of art. Contrast in tone is achieved by offsetting blank against hand-etched and distressed surfaces, refracting the light, each creating differing areas of brilliance or illusory shadow. As the viewer changes position, the refraction changes and the artworks take on a new appearance. Highlights of 24 carat gold leaf and/or Pindan pigments are applied. The Red Earth series emphasizes the contrast between the distinctively contemporary aluminium and the organic red earth (Pindan) pigments, Modern versus Ancient, City versus Outback, yet at the same time forming one entity.
This exhibition features sculptures by prominent Perth sculptor Viktor Eszenyi. Viktor has been sculpting in Hungary, Germany, and Australia since the age of sixteen, using many varieties of natural stone and marble. This experience, together with his passion for nature, has culminated in Viktor's own unique style of sensuous curves and strong lines. He has created numerous projects as part of the Percent For Art program and has received significant commissions from schools, such as the Guildford Grammar School . His works are held in corporate collections such as the City ofMelville and the TVW Telethon Institute for Child Health Research, as well as in many private collections.
