Carla Adams and Wade Taylor double opening at Spectrum Project Space

Wednesday, 06 July 2016


An exciting double exhibition opening at Edith Cowan University’s Spectrum Project Space will be celebrated on Thursday, 21 July at 6.00pm showcasing new work by two Western Australian early career artists Carla Adams and Wade Taylor.

In By The Light Of The Screen, Carla Adams presents a new body of work that investigates the adult cinema as a location for desire and fulfilment. Ms Adams continues to explore situations that teeter between private and public and how women might navigate spaces that are predominantly inhabited by men.

Carla Adams works with paint and textiles. After graduating with an advanced diploma in contemporary art from Central TAFE in 2012, Adams went on to receive first class honours from Curtin University in 2014. Adams has exhibited at Free Range Gallery, Paper Mountain, MOANA, ARTBAR at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney and Bus Projects in Melbourne. Her work was selected for the 2013 Hatched national graduate exhibition at PICA. Adams is a sessional academic at Curtin University and committee member at Free Range ARI.

By The Light Of The Screen will be exhibited in Spectrum Project Space’s back gallery.

In Fertile, Free, Wade Taylor explores the potential and charged nature of vacant spaces and highlights the tension between the stillness and the promise of empty landscapes and abandoned spaces. Taylor’s work suggests the void of human presence and the energy that lingers in these familiar and pedestrian scenes - parks, underpasses, toilet blocks and car parks.

Wade Taylor completed a Bachelor in Fine Arts at the University of Western Australia in 2012 with a focus on painting, film, and multi-media installation. While working primarily with paint, his practice often extends to include investigations in collage and ceramics. Taylor has had successful solo exhibitions at Free Range and Paper Mountain.

Fertile, Free will be exhibited in Spectrum Project Space’s front gallery.
