Bill Whiskey Tjapaltjarri, ‘Rockholes near the Olgas’, 2007. Acrylic on linen, 200 x 494cm. Courtesy: the artist and Nanda/Hobbs, Sydney.
Like the camera obscura of the 17th century, this exhibition is, in a way, a distortion. The work is about place, politics and the beauty of the land. It is a powerful and moving discussion in paint about ideas and mythology that locates us and acknowledges the importance of the collective history of this land.
Exhibiting artists include: Giles Alexander, Nicholas Blowers, James Drinkwater, John Glover, Kevin Namatjira, Tjawina Porter Nampitjinpa, John Olsen, Paul Ryan, Bill Whiskey Tjapaltjarri, George Ward Tjungurrayi, Brett Whiteley.
Exhibition opens: 6-8pm Thursday 21 February 2019
