For a city that isn't exactly famed for its culture, the Art Gallery of Western Australia is a haven of the arts. A good collection including a lot of visiting art that have also seen over on the east cost. Well worth checking out.

Beautiful collections, and cool minimalist architecture. Find the stairway to the historic courthouse gallery downstairs for a couple of famous Australian gems

Many historical artworks on early WA days. Well managed and good atmosphere.

Happy WA Day! In ‘Longreach Bay, Rottnest’ 1954, Guy Grey-Smith’s use of colour, particularly bright complementary colours, references Vincent van Gogh and the awareness that the use of such colours produces brilliant optical effects. See this work on display in Guy Grey-Smith: Art as Life. http://ht.ly/wtrkU #ArtasLife

Guy Grey-Smith had a particular interest in patterning, which is evident in his depiction of karri forests. The karri forest, the subject of one of Grey-Smith’s final significant bodies of work, has a long history as a subject for him, all the way back to 1951. http://ht.ly/wtrkU #ArtAsLife

Guy Grey-Smith made this quick sketch showing a view of a beach in a remote part of Western Australia’s south-west called Malimup. Here, he has used ink and a pen nib to complete the drawing using short, thick and strong lines to show the land and finer, sweeping lines to show the ocean. http://ht.ly/wtrkU #ArtAsLife

This landscape called ‘In the hills’, along with more than 100 others, is currently on display in the Guy Grey-Smith: Art as Life exhibition. http://ht.ly/wtqPI #ArtAsLife

This painting of Torbay, which is located in the Great Southern region of WA, illustrates the influence of Fauvism in Guy Grey-Smith’s style of working. A notable shift in his style began to occur shortly afterwards in 1958. http://ht.ly/wtrkU #ArtAsLife

From 1956 onwards, Guy Grey-Smith and his family travelled extensively through the Gascoyne and Pilbara regions, as well as the South-West of WA. This provided him with an array of subjects that ranged from the oppressive, parched landscape of Skull Springs to the lush karri forests around Pemberton. He said in an interview in 1965, “In painting, the form of experience should be fully realised in terms of the medium itself: one should not rely on subject matter. Paintings are not a kind of literary expression.” http://ht.ly/wtrkU #ArtAsLife
