23 March – 28 April 2012
Venn Gallery presents a number of selected works by leading Australian artist Petrina Hicks. The exhibition includes photographic prints and video from Hick’s series Beautiful Creatures, Every Rose Has Its Thorn, The Descendants
and Untitled 2005.
Each of the works continue to explore the artists fascination with utilising the seductive and glossy language of commercial photography to create artworks that probe the false promise of perfection.
Over the last decade, Sydney based Hicks has exhibited extensively throughout Australia and held numerous solo and group shows. Petrina Hicks – Selected Works is the artist’s first solo exhibition in Perth and will allow viewers the opportunity to experience significant works from her practice to date.
Petrina Hicks – Selected Works is also part of the Western Australian biennial festival FotoFreo 2012, which runs from 17 March – 15 April.
Petrina Hicks is represented by Stills Gallery, Sydney.
