Josephine Mick, ‘Mamungari’ Ninuku Exhibition now showing at @artmarkgallery at the Niche Markets. Visit Catherine, gallery owner, this Thursday through to Sunday to find more Aboriginal art and design.
The gorgeous + talented Karen Alberts playing around with repeats on her design 'My Grandfather's County'. This design features the Wandjina, a uniquely North East Kimberley spirit / dreaming which is depicted in ancient rocks all around Kalumburu (and in Karen's Grandfather's county!) The Wandjina is responsible for bringing the weather, and creating the waterways.
Was so incredible to spend time with the women at the Kalumburu Womens centre recently, we can't wait to share all the powerful new designs with you! Email about the week coming to inboxes soon (sign up if you love an irregular newsy email!)
“Art History teaches you that there are a million ways to paint; there are theories, histories, and sociologies. This was distracting to me; it interrupted the vividness of internal expressions. In untangling myself from this web of confusion, I found a fascination with the animal world. There is purity to their behaviour and expression that I could channel. I am captivated by the incredible variety of animals and birds and their humorous, energetic and spontaneous behaviour. In my art now, I find focus and expression in the unique body language, distinctive energies and mysterious characteristics of animals and birds.”⠀
Dhaneshwar Shah, with his project 'Politics and Power behind the Animal', is one to the Indian artists participating in the exhibition 25th of August at RoS Gallery in Roskilde. His work, full of animal references and colours, is highly influenced and inspired by tribal and aboriginal art and their philosophy. Shah is a president of MEADOWS organisation, focusing on political activities retaliated to art and culture and he is currently doing his PhD as a practice and research on Chinese ink painting. ⠀
The project is supported by the Danish Cultural Institute. ⠀

Tjapartji Kanytjuri Bates’ works described the Dreamtime. Painting both in from the edges and out from the centre of the canvas, she used traditional desert symbols and iconography. You can check out her work in Bush Women.

I was drawing before I could walk. I scribbled on anything I could find, including the walls (sorry mum and dad). A few years ago I pushed art away, denying it’s power in my life. But in the end art was the only thing that was really me. This creativity runs through my blood. It’s my safe guard, the soft pillow I fall back on when everything around me is falling apart and it’s the tool I use to inspire others and make our days a little brighter. How has art helped you?⚡️🤩🎊🌈🌞👩🏽🎨 🎨 #art#quote#creativity#artquotes#paint#colour#draw#aboriginalart
