Shirley Macnamara: Yesterday

March 30, 2022 - April 22, 2022

Courtesy: the artist and Alcaston Gallery, Melbourne.

Based in north-west Queensland, Indjalandji-Dhidhanu – Alyawarr artist Shirley Macnamara presents new sculptural works in her forthcoming solo exhibition Yesterday at Alcaston Gallery, drawing inspiration from her beloved bush Country, and using natural materials to create objects including guutu (vessels) that reflect forms in nature.

Macnamara’s guutu (vessels), are woven from spinifex and lined with varying shades of ochres. Each guutu recalls the Country from which it was formed with the natural features of the land wielding a powerful aesthetic and cultural influence on the design of each piece. Presented together, the installation is an evocative representation of the harsh, dry region surrounding Camooweal in far north-west Queensland, a Country beloved and deeply understood by the artist.

Opening: Saturday 2 April 2022, 2pm – 4pm.
