Curated by Ron Nyisztor

The only exhibition of its kind in Western Australia, Mine Own Executioner has established its reputation, fascinating Western Australian audiences with diverse interpretations and representations of the self since the inaugural exhibition in 1995. Presented by the Mundaring Arts Centre, this exhibition has challenged over 300 of some of Western Australia’s most significant artists to investigate the notion of self-portraiture.

Mine Own Executioner in 2014 presents an intriguing collection of new works by seminal Western Australian artists, with the aim of reflecting the depth and range of creative arts practice currently at work in our artistic community. Curated by Ron Nyisztor, these 18 West Australian artists have manifested an image of themselves free from the constraints of an overarching exhibition theme.

‘Executioners’ Amanda Alderson, Tané Andrews, Robert Cleworth, Brad Coleman, Moira de la Hunty, Michael Doherty, Abraham Dunovits, Lee Harrop, Matthew Hunt, Beth Kirkland, André Lipscombe, Andy Quilty, Max Richards, Nien Schwarz, Monique Tippett, Daniel Webster, Gera Woltjer and Jurek Wybraniec go beyond commercial representation of likeness, compelling the audience toward something more complex and meaningful.
