Art an explosion of ideas

One of Perth’s exciting new artistic talents, Brennan uses materials and processes relevant to him, in unconventional ways.

‘My paintings feature in their own narrative,’ he said.

‘Putting together this body of work has pushed me creatively and has challenged my boundaries.’

In his latest collection, Potential Exploded, Brennan explored the idea of taking a creative leap of faith.

The exhibition will feature WA artwork, which this year includes works in paint, mixed media, jewellery, ceramics, sculptures and glass.

It was organised by the Hale Art Committee, with proceeds from the sale of artwork going to the committee to fund projects for the artistic enrichment of the school and wider community.

The Fine Art at Hale cocktail preview is on Friday, August 1 at 6.30pm. The exhibition continues over August 2 and 3 from 10am to 5pm.
