Vicki Ames and David Carson have been working and exhibiting in Western Australia for the last 26 years and some would say that it’s about time they showed work together…
However, the title About Time – actually references the common thread running through their work; they are both concerned with mutability, that is, the changes brought about by the passage of time.
In Vicki‘s case, it is the distortions and changes in objects and places, specifically worn, discoloured and broken surface areas.
In Dave‘s case, it is a long-time interest in recording, documenting, places and events over extended periods of time, using time lapse photography and video, which is metamorphosed into abstract art works, as prints and moving image sequences.
Both techniques produce work that is abstract, but located in experiences of particular places and events.
