Interstices is a 25-year survey of the work of renowned jeweller Helen Britton, including new works that draw inspiration from Western Australia’s coastline.

Britton has developed an international reputation as a contemporary artist, sourcing metal and found materials from around the globe and reconfiguring them into spectacular objects of adornment. Now a resident in Munich, she regularly returns to scour the local landscape, from beaches to the desert interior, in search of shells, seeds and found materials for her creations.

Exhibition runs from 11 February to 15 April 2017 with the gallery open 11-5 Tues-Sat.
