Noŋgirrŋa Marawili: Dha`irr’yun

September 9, 2020 - October 3, 2020

Noŋgirrŋa Marawili, Rough Gapu, 2020. Natural earth pigments on bark, 217 x 98cm. Courtesy: the artist, Buku Larrŋgay Mulka, Northern Territory and Alcaston Gallery, Melbourne.

Noŋgirrŋa Marawili is regarded as one of the most important artists working in Australia today. Her highly sophisticated bark paintings, Larrakitj and works on paper reflect an engrained, natural understanding of her culture, history and environment, as she creates fluid, organic patterns that allude to her strong familial ties.

This exhibition at Alcaston Gallery entitled Dha`irr’yun, meaning ‘breaking waves’ in Yolŋu, alludes to Noŋgirrŋa’s enigmatic portrayals of rough seas, waves crashing against rocks and on the shore in her fluid ochre designs, as well as referencing a shift to the desaturation of colours in her new barking paintings, Larrakitj and works on paper.

Alcaston Gallery is currently closed in accordance with Victoria’s restriction level. Instead, the exhibition can be viewed online. Veiw the exhibition here. Additionally, the virtual online exhibition catalogue can be viewed here.
