Sunday-drive enthusiasts and fine art admirers can come together and rejoice in their shared interests at Bunbury’s newest exhibition this week. Perth artist Annette Peterson brings together the suburban pleasure of our neighbourhoods through the stunning detail of oil paint on canvas in Through the Streets & Other Adventures. The exhibition is an exploration of the suburban driving experience, through the “live” experience of a front-seat passenger. Peterson has used her smartphone to create a series of stop-motion films that emulate a “live” option on an Apple iOS smartphone, replacing each film still with a painting. Each painting is photographed to create a stop-motion film to emulate the original “live” photo of the car ride. Peterson said the exhibition noted soeciety’s crossroads of technological advancement. “We are at a crossroad, where technology is impending on everyday life, and we have to question what the function of (the technology) is,” she said. She said the structure of the artwork was intended to represent how the human eye worked. “Once you break down every frame of what you see, it is so interesting to appreciate how our eyes work,” she said. “Especially while driving, we drive so much but we can’t take stock of what we see, even though it’s our everyday life. “I started to always want to look around the corner, like driving past a tree and looking how the tree transformed in front of me.” Peterson’s art will be displayed using a range of media including oil on canvas, monitors, and projections. The work represents the diversity of mixed media art, showcasing traditional art styles and those of the 21st century. Through the Streets & Other Adventures will be on display at the Bunbury Regional Art Gallery until October 10.
