Fremantle Oil Paintings

Fremantle is just like a whispered secret
It's mystery, discovery and surprise
Around every corner, down every street
There are those ships moving like mountains
A long slow dance with the sunset and the sea.

These rich and colourful original artworks by Ken Rasmussen capture the essence of Fremantle.

Magpies and green parrots soar over the great big river that runs from the city of Perth down to the ocean at Fremantle. The Jacarandas are in bloom, Dingo guards the coast, and cargo ships ply their trade in Gage Roads, coming into the port.

Here is Fremantle. It reminds me so much of an Edwardian port village. It’s re-invented itself through the University and cafes. It’s been brought to life by the migrants who share their cafes, delis and generous hearts. There are so many surprises to open in this place. You can see the port, the lighthouses, the railway line, the park and the Ferris wheel. Add all to that, the cargo ships, the containers, Cottesloe and Dingo. Someone described this as Christmas in a landscape painting.
