Ships that Pass. Jo Darbyshire and Penny Coss

PSAS ART SPACE PACKENHAM ST, FREMANTLE, WA

PSAS is a project space and experimental platform for contemporary art. Large in scale, the two storey brick and iron building is rare as one of the most intact examples of its former use for the Fremantle Port as a major centre for trade and commerce.

In responding to the site , this exhibition titled ‘Ships that Pass’, is based on the poem written by H.W. Longfellow in 1874 that reflects on the idea of a sense of place and where ships are an allusion of the transitory nature of time.

Jo Darbyshire’s work plays with ideas from both representation and abstraction. She aligns her work to that of the Surrealists and the attempt for a psychic directness that relates to experience and ‘inner vision’ rather than the expression of feelings.

Penny Coss imagines the landscape as a backdrop for cultural migration, and places of transition between familiar and foreign terrain. She references geology, biology and the gravitational forces of water .
