The Moores Building Contemporary Art Gallery will host Palmyra painter Lindsay Pow’s latest exhibition between February 16 and March 5.

THE atmosphere of the Boranup Karri Forest will be brought to Fremantle next month during oil painter Lindsay Pow’s latest exhibition.

Pow lived in Pemberton 35 years ago, producing work that contrasted deep shade with the whiteness of the towering karri tree’s bark.

Re-using the south-west for inspiration, the Palmyra resident worked from photos and his imagination to create a new set of paintings he will show at the Moores Building Contemporary Art Gallery from February 16.

“I’m trying to capture the late afternoon light and when it gets quite cool,” he said.

“There’s a nice transition between daytime and evening.

“I really like the atmosphere and people find it inspiring.”

Pow has enjoyed a successful career which has included featuring at New York’s Snug Harbor Cultural Center and Botanical Garden.

This will be his third appearance at the Moores Building.

He will complement the exhibition, which will run until March 5, with live paintings.
