  • [ WELCOME TO BOOM GALLERY ]

    Boom Gallery is a vibrant and active contemporary art gallery. We represent a cross section of work – from emerging and established artists, with a strong regional bias.

    We exhibit most media, including painting, sculpture, printmaking, drawing, photography, design and small objects. We give artists a platform to exhibit and sell their work and provide information about art investment.

Amanda Carson / Pleasant Twittering / May 30 – June 14

Pleasant Twittering was inspired by Amanda’s travels in WA and from her own backyard in Jan Juc.  These delicate watercolour paintings, undertaken with a contemporary approach, using blocks of colour and repetition of patterns to detail a beautiful selection of “feathered friends”.  These paintings draw upon Amanda’s background in graphic design, and her enduring love of geometric shapes and a bold colour palette.

‘You get such vibrant colours in nature … birds come in every colour imaginable, which I think is incredible. Nature does an amazing job, but I like to take it even further, to find hues and colours that others don’t see. These paintings represent all the colours that make up a bird – yet in blocks of colour, so everything gets broken down into a shade on its own.’

Daniel Bushaway / Control

Control is an ongoing series observing the infrastructure used to extract, conserve, and ultimately control water.  Daniel is preoccupied with vast landscapes manipulated to facilitate mass consumption – so we have water at the turn of a tap. The series was shot on a 4×5 large-format camera during summer 2009-/ 12 in the Andalucían Basin in regional Spain and regional Tasmania, Australia. The locations have been chosen for waterways that have been diverted on an awe inspiring scale, to majestic yet unsettling effect. The colour photographs are rendered with striking clarity of detail.
