EXHIBITION - 24/02/2023 - 05/05/2023


Radius 4.0 Exhibition | 24 February – 05 May 2022 

Radius is a launchpad exhibition program for early-career regional artists. In its fourth year, the Radius artist development and exhibition program continues to support emerging artists from the Pilbara and Kimberley regions through professional and peer mentoring while engaging the selected artists in a collaborative learning experience through digital and online formats. The program creates pathways for participants to develop their skills as visual practitioners through guided group mentoring, curation and installation of the exhibition. This exhibition plays an integral role in The Junction Co.’s broader Artistic Excellence program designed to create pathways for regional artists to develop their skills as visual practitioners. 

Featuring Alice Boardman, Verity Page and Jaimee Wright, Radius 4.0 presents a group of dynamic artists who harness their artistic practice to explore endless possibilities, creating meaningful and compelling work.  Each artist brings their unique and profoundly considered voice to this exhibition – expressing ideas of place attachment, community history, fragility and feminine strength, commenting on social issues, whilst exploring artistic processes.

Alice Boardman

Based in Rubibi / Broome on Yawuru Country in the East Kimberly of Australia, Alice Boardman is an artist who employs painting, drawing, photography, and more recently glass and found objects, to explore innate human experiences of memory, fragility and connection. Through the experimental process of reclaiming and repurposing, Alice creates stained glass paintings that capture the tenderness and light of rebuilding. Materiality and contrast are key to her practice, nurturing the hard and brittle glass surface to create softness and fluidity in her work. 

Born in Narm on the lands of the Boon Wurrung and Woiwurrung (Wurundjeri) people of the Kulin Nation, Alice holds a Diploma of Arts, Swinburne University of Technology, and Advanced Diploma of Art Therapy. Her professional career has been based in the education, community, youth justice and health service sectors, where she has worked with people using art for expression and wellbeing.

Jaimee Wright

Jaimee Wright is an emerging artist from Rubibi (Broome), living and working on Yawuru/Djugun country. She is currently undertaking studies in English and Cultural Studies, and Fine Art at Curtin University. Working predominantly with painting, her practice explores connection to place, depicting the vibrant landscapes of the Kimberley region she has visited since childhood. In 2022, she received a Highly Commended Award at the Shinju Matsuri Art Awards and has since been focusing on a new body of work which introduces human figures and man-made objects into these natural environments.

Verity Page

Born and raised in Albany on Menang Noongar Boodja, Verity Page has been creating art from a young age; countless scrapbooks brimming with drawings and watercolours. Her path continued in her teenage summers, working as a gallery assistant in her neighbour’s glass art
studio in Torbay. In her free time she would work alongside him, making glass impressions of native flora and fauna to exhibit in the gallery. Her further studies in English, History, and Education finished in 2014, and she relocated to Bunbury to start work. It was here that she began the next phase of her creative journey, via a weekly art class run by a local painter. In over five years alongside other self-taught artists, she learned to paint intuitively and expressively using acrylics as her primary medium.

Currently, Verity is an early career artist living in and working on Kariyarra country in Port
Hedland. At the moment, she is exploring portraiture in her practice and enjoys abstracting physical features with colour and values to create a distinctive likeness of the subject. Both real life and media provide a fertile ground for inspiration to strike, and her typical approach to creating is to jump first and ask questions along the way, letting the process and visual effect guide the final narrative of the piece. In the future, Verity hopes to continue to develop her loose
yet refined painting style, and further explore other mediums, like textiles and ceramics.
