Petrina Hicks’ work is included in Fragile Armour at the Perth Centre for Contemporary Photography.
The exhibition brings together the work of five artists who utilise photographic portraiture in their practices to explore the complexities of the human condition.
Abdul Abdullah, Tony Albert, David Charles Collins, Petrina Hicks and Angela Tiata individually present their subjects as a symbol of strength, resilience and defiance.
Equally, this strength is juxtaposed with a reading of vulnerability and exposure. This dual depiction of strength and fragility play off each other evoking empathy and awe for subjects in the work.
The exhibition runs from 23 March – 14 April 2018.
