Whale watching season

Unforgettable whale watching experiences

Did you know that WA's Humpback Highway experiences the largest whale migration in the Southern Hemisphere? In April, the whales leave the rich feeding grounds of Antartica to raise their young in the warm in WA's north west. Their return journey brings them close to Perth's coast from September - December.

Bill Henson

This exhibition presents recent photographs by Bill Henson, selected by the artist, and encompassing themes including portraits, nudes, lush museum interiors and transcendent landscapes at the Art Gallery of WA from 16 September - 11 December.

The images in this show are drawn from a body of works created between 2008 and 2011, and continue Henson’s sensitive study of the human condition, which he has realised over his forty-year career.

Each of the works included has a palpable sense of the cinematic and together they form an enigmatic imaginative statement. Like much of his work, there is little that is explicit, and rather the works propose open-ended narratives and capture a transitory sensation.

A powerful sense of mystery and ambiguity can be found within the images, heightened by the deep blackness of the shadows and the striking use of chiaroscuro to selectively obscure and reveal the form of the nudes, sculptures and the landscape itself. Bill Henson is a National Gallery of Victoria exhibition. For more information visit www.artgallery.wa.gov.au/exhibitions/bill-henson.
