Four South West artists motivated by their visual experience had their work on display at the ArtGeo Gallery in Busselton for an exhibition examining images as a visual response to perception.

The artists were at the gallery on Saturday to talk guests through their work and how they were constructed.

Using himself as a muse, Busselton artist Tom Ansell created his work from bitumen and ink painting a reflection of himself in the mirror.

Stratham artist Rebecca Corps investigated the impact between humans and the environment, in particular the impact of birds and cars on roads in the South West.

She used a two-metre frame made from recycled clothing and silver leaf to highlight her ethical responsibility in the death of birds to inject human accountability.

Donnybrook artist and former New Yorker Susan Ecker used the landscape as the basis of her work, saying it helped her understand her new environment after moving from the US.
