ABOUT RADIANCE- ARTWORK FROM DESERT COUNTRY
Radiance is a showcase of recent artwork by Indigenous artists from the desert art centres of Mimili Maku, Warnayaka, Tjungu Palya, Ernabella Arts, Papulankutja, Warlukurlangu and Ikuntji. The artwork in Radiance represents the desert in canvases which display melodic patterning and bold gesture that resonate with the sensuality of colour and paint. These paintings invite the viewer to delve deeper into understanding the complex relationship between people and place, Country and community, the connection between past, present and future, and the linkages between the everyday and Tjukurrpa (Dreaming). This complex and interconnected web encompassing society, spirituality, land, ecology, and natural land management is evoked in the potency of this desert artwork.
Join us for the exhibition opening on 24 July 2015.
