The Katanning Art Gallery will showcase the work of a Fremantle abstract artist to end a state-wide tour. The Roll the Tape exhibition opening is on Saturday August 5 from 2-4pm and artist Trevor Richards will be in attendance to unveil his collection. The gallery will reopen on August 7, and the exhibition will continue until September 16. Richards is known for his abstract paintings and three-dimensional works which feature bright colours and geometric patterns on gleaming surfaces. He said his art showcases the last 20 years of his work which has allowed him to engage viewers to seek alternative ways to read their surroundings. “I have always enjoyed the process of putting paint on a canvas and seeing how it transforms the way the viewer looks at the surface,” Richards said. “The human mind looks for patterns in chaos and for meaning in our environment and this is key to the experience of my work.” The pieces display historic art techniques such as Islamic mosaic tiling, architectural modellings and tessellations that reflect the artist’s interests in patterns and structures from everyday life. Katanning is the final stop of the Art On The Move tour which has been travelling the State since September 2021, visiting places such as Kalgoorlie, Shark Bay and Collie. Art On The Move is a not-for-profit visual arts organisation that aims to encourage connections for people to understand the world through visual art.
