TEXT: Kate Vickers
An opportunity for new audiences to see the work of Howard Taylor, one of the most
significant WA artists of the second half of last century. Although Taylor's sculptural works
could be described as 'abstract ' or 'non-objective', he always started by sketching and
painting what he saw in the material world. Insight into the ar tist's process is possible, with
each three-dimensional work shown next to the drawings and paintings that led to them.

REVELATIONS: CONTEMPORARY VISIONS
Revelations is worth seeing, if only to keep an eye on local superstar Thea Costantino.
Thea is one to watch; as a writer, artist, and curator. Among her recent credits are the
musical extravaganza Heart of Gold and the Joondalup Art Award of Excellence. In
Revelations Thea brings her characteristically sinister, yet humorous, perspective to
bear on six WA artists: Ryan Nazzari, Tori Benz, Pia Bennett, Josh Fitzpatrick, Travis
Kelleher and Andrew Nicholls.
