‘Compositions’ by Ian MacRae
About the Artist and Collection
Ian spends as much time thinking about the composition of a painting as the painting of it. His prime motivation is to represent accurately on the canvas what he has imagined for the piece. There are a diverse compilation of ideas to this exhibition. Since reengaging with painting four years ago Ian’s main subjects have included local dogs, Rottnest Island, sailing ships and memories of various places that he has travelled to (including Greece, Scotland, Japan and Nepal). Ian has developed a style that owes much to pointillism, with the difference that he likes using squares to give the impression of mosaics.
A dynamic exhibition by Glass Artists of WA showcasing art Glass+ another material.

Featuring commissioned works by highly regarded WA visual artist Bevan Honey, the exhibition will turn the spotlight on Perth’s contribution to a cultural revolution and trace local stories, design innovation and artistry from the 60s to the present day. Not only that, there’ll be plenty of opportunities for people to bring their board and have a skate! Freedom runs from Friday, 3 December 2021 to Saturday, 19 February 2022 at Yagan Mia Wireless Hill Park and Museum. The exhibition is open Wednesday to Sunday, 10.00am to 4.00pm and extended hours on special event days.
