At PICA we recognise that we are situated within the unceded lands of the Whadjuk people of the Noongar Nation. We pay our respects and offer our gratitude to Elders past and present, and to those emerging leaders in the community. We acknowledge all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and the importance of their care and continued connection to culture, community and Country.

Always was, always will be.

Our foyer is open today 10am–5pm. Our exhibitions are always free.

Ross Hamilton Frew’s practice is rooted in mark making and concerned with the properties and relations of points, lines and surfaces. Be it through drawing, collage, print or assemblage, his work always adheres to a series of predetermined or self imposed rules and structures.
During his residency Ross will place an emphasis on ‘surface’ and by collecting recyclable materials such as books, newspapers and magazines from in and around Perth, he will create various paper materials. Both two and three dimensional, the created surface with it’s bespoke markings will dictate what is drawn upon it, but not before the original content is dissected to create haiku poetry.
