Carla Adams in The Dark Side

Recent work by Carla Adams features in The Dark Side exhibition presented at the Edith Cowan University Galleries in Perth. Curated by Professor Ted Snell AM CitWA, it is aimed at raising awareness of the function of the arts and creativity in dealing with mental health challenges.

Carla’s woven portraits depict men who sent her offensive message on the Tinder dating app. Speaking about the work Carla articulates that creating the works acted as a kind of cathartic release, helping to resolve negative feelings and allow for forgiveness.

The exhibition also presents a range of artists including Tarryn Gill, Paul Uhlmann, Roderick Sprigg, Sharyn Egan, Anna Nazzari, Stormie Mills and Tyrown Waigana.

The exhibition is on at ECU Galleries until 17 June 2021.
