Alcaston Gallery presents work by senior APY Lands artist Rupert Jack.
In this new body of work, Jack has skilfully constructed stoneware ceramics that depict the journey of the Maku, or witchetty grub, an important story in Anangu cultural history. The distinct incisions on the ceramics’ surface represent the Maku travelling across his country in the APY Lands. Jack believes that the evolution of the witchetty grub into the ghost moth reflects the evolution of the human spirit, and the artist’s mark making on the circular surface of ceramics reflects the surface of the earth; a continuous loop of evolution and the cycle of life.
