Yaritji Young: From my Father’s Country

September 4, 2019 - October 5, 2019

Yaritji Young, Honey Ant Story, 2019. Synthetic polymer paint on linen,198 x 298cm. Courtesy: the artist, Tjala Arts and Alcaston Gallery, Melbourne.

 

Drawing inspiration from her father, the esteemed artist Mick Wikilyiri, Yaritji Young uniquely portrays her father’s beloved Country surrounding Amata in the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunyjatjara (APY) Lands of South Australia.

Her vibrant, contemporary works offer a representation of country, spirituality and a rich family history, particularly with her interpretation of Tjala or the Honey Ant Dreaming, which is an important creation story for the Pitjantjatjara people. Her impressive use of bright, luminescent colour reflect the stunning landscape and sky of country, with all its wondrous colours, combined with vigorous brush strokes that seem to dance across the canvas.

 

Exhibition opens: 5:30–7:30pm Wednesday 4 September 2019
