"There is no abstract art. You must always start with something. Afterward you can remove all traces of reality". Pablo Picasso

'Removing the Traces: Aspects of Abstraction from the Janet Holmes Court Collection' is an exciting group exhibition which will be held at Holmes Court Gallery at Vasse Felix from 11th February to 3rd June 2018.

This exhibition presents a handpicked selection of significant and captivating abstract works from the Janet Holmes Court Collection which showcase intriguing aspects of south-west landscape. Discover artworks representing the essence of land, forest and water alongside demonstrations of longstanding Aboriginal presence.

The displayed artworks demonstrate varying degrees and methods of abstraction e.g. ultra-simplification, gestural and expressive brushwork, flattening of the picture surface and saturated colour, whilst maintaining the formal principles of line, form, shape, value, movement and composition.

The real subjects recede and the aesthetics become the dominant factors.


The Holmes Court Gallery at Vasse Felix is located on the corner of Tom Cullity Dr and Caves Rd, Cowaramup.

The Gallery is open daily from 10am to 5pm.

The exhibition will run from 11th February to 3rd June 2018. Please note the Gallery will be closed on Good Friday.
