Known for his highly detailed and intricate paintings in acrylic, Alan's work depicts aspects of coastal suburban living, often in a humorous way.
The great urban expansion of Perth, the annual rubbish collection, graffiti, car burnouts and the burning of untrimmed palm trees are just some of a range of local themes.
More recent paintings of the Swan River and surrounding land as Whadjuk country, before English settlement in 1829, acknowledge Whadjuk traditional ownership and skilled land management on a vast scale. Alan is a renowned and unique artist, who will be presenting 60 paintings that have been inspired by Perth, the Swan River and its ancient history.

An exhibition of artwork by Aboriginal girls from Girrawheen Senior High School
Following on from the very successful inaugural exhibition opening in 2016, The City of Wanneroo again in collaboration with Edith Cowan University and Girrawheen Senior High School are proud to present Yokayi Waarbiny Wer Malayin Djin-Djin (Celebrate Art and Cultural Spirit). The exhibition will feature new works from Aboriginal girls from Year 7 through to Year 11 including textiles, sculpture, eco dying, painting and photography. The girls will again be mentored and taught by both upcoming and leading art professionals including Jess Hart, Curtis Taylor and longtime Tracey Moffatt collaborator, Gary Hillberg.
The program aims to improve the education, discipline and self-esteem of young Aboriginal women through art and has provided many different and wonderful learning opportunities for the students.
