COLOUR, light and time might seem like an odd combination, but these are the concepts that inspire artist Rebecca Baumann in her new exhibition.

Enjoying the process of sitting down and interpreting the world around her through art, Baumann has loved everything about art since she was a child.

Now considering herself an inter-disciplinary artist, Baumann will be exhibiting her latest pieces in new exhibition Manoeuvres at the Fremantle Arts Centre.

“I like to use everyday objects and industrial, pre-existing colours,” she said.

“My work generally involves kinetic activation, or an innate element of change.

“For the exhibition, there will be two kinetic installations which involve the choreography of colour, light and time.”

One piece, Once More with Feeling, uses a tri-vision billboard that will see a beam of kaleidoscopic light transition throughout the gallery as the prisms turn.

She said it had been a “wonderful experience” being involved with the Fremantle Arts Centre and was hoping to see many art lovers walking through the gallery.

“I had a small solo exhibition at FAC in 2009 which was very important in terms of my creative development, so it feels great to come full circle and have the opportunity to exhibit at FAC again,” she said.

“People will be able to come to the exhibition and be entirely immersed in colour.”

At the conclusion of the exhibition, Baumann will be taking up a residency in Helsinki, where she will be researching the Northern Lights.

Manoeuvres is on at the Fremantle Arts Centre from November 21 until January 24.
