Janganpa Jukurrpa (Brush-tail Possum Dreaming)  - Mawurrji -  Steven Jupurrurla Nelson

Steven Jupurrurla Nelson Janganpa Jukurrpa (Brush-tail Possum Dreaming) - Mawurrji
Janganpa Jukurrpa (Common Brush-tail Possum, Trichosurus vulpecular, Dreaming) travels all over Warlpiri country. “Janganpa’ are nocturnal animals that often nest in the hollows of white gum trees (‘wapunungka’). This story comes from a big hill called Mawurrji, west of Yuendumu and north of Pikilyi (Vaughan Springs). A group of ‘janganpa’ ancestors resided there. Every night they would go out in search of food. Their hunting trips took them to Wirlki and Wanapirdi, where they found ‘pamapardu’ (flying ants). They journeyed on to Ngarlkirdipini looking for water.

Warlpiri people perform a young men’s initiation ceremony, which involves the Janganpa Jukurrpa. The Janganpa Jukurrpa belongs to the Jakamarra/Jupurrurla men and the Nakamarra/Napurrurla women. In Warlpiri paintings traditional iconography is used to represent this Jukurrpa. ‘Janganpa’ tracks are often represented as ‘E’ shaped figures and concentric circles are used to depict the trees in which the ‘janganpa’ live, and also the sites at Mawurrji.

FALLING BEYOND (2018) -  Misha Tyutyunik

Misha Tyutyunik FALLING BEYOND (2018)
The light escapes the darkness. Through the line it shines to illuminate the truth of consciousness. Dark is the essence from which all life has become. Even the light was born of darkness. Searching to flee the all encompassing, the light grew, a flower out of rock. It became a spark, then a flicker and then a beam. The beam became a line, and the line grew to define shape. Those shapes came to expose a world that pulsates color and writhes with the echoes of the dark. That world is our world, a world of possibilities and heroes, epic and commonplace. There are jungles of flora and concrete, citadels of bark and stone, inhabited by warrior and beast. There is magic in these lines. Each interlaced patchwork of light is a window. Each box is a portal.

  • Sung Hee Cho  (+)

    Detailed Description : Cho Sung-Hee’s works incarnate a string of opposites under a seemingly calm surface. She combines Korean Hanji paper, a traditional material, with oil paint, rather than its archetypal association with Asian inks. Through other creative steps, she comes to her own method and uses this synthesis to create abstract but meticulous works, mesmerising to the eye and the mind. Cho’s works, divided into monochromatic (named after numbers and letters) and polychromatic ones, require a lengthy production. Each Hanji piece is shaped and painted by hand, it is then integrated into the larger composition on canvas. The artist creates a very limited number of works each year. Making a surface that seems to be void, she works intricately with different colours and surfaces inspired by the nature and the world around us. Many themes interact in Cho’s works, from the smallest grain to the infinite. We can observe some of these from her titles – she works with concrete elements of the nature, such as flower blossoms, to something much more metaphysical, the cosmic and the universe. The artist's first name Sung -Hee means ‘stars’ (Sung) and ‘splendour’ (Hee)

  • Sarrita King Nampin  (+)

    Biography : Sarrita King was born in Adelaide, South Australia on the 5th March 1988. She is the younger sister to fellow artist, Tarisse King and daughter to the late highly regarded artist, William King Jungala (1966 - 2007). Sarrita inherits her Australian Aboriginality from her father who was part of the Gurindji tribe from the Northern Territory. The Gurindji tribe came to public attention during the 1960s and 1970s when members employed by the Wave Hill cattle station led a landmark case which became the first successful land rights claim in Australia. It is this same strong sense of self and pride that Sarrita embodies and it fuels her drive to paint her totemic landscape. Sarrita spent most of her youth growing up in Darwin in the Northern Territory. Not far from where her ancestors inhabited, it is here that her connection to her Aboriginality and subsequently the land was able to grow. Her exposure to the imperious weather and extreme landscape has provided the theme for her works of art, since she began painting at age 16. Rolling sand hills, cracking lightning and thunderstorms, torrential rain, fire, desert and tangled bush are all scathing environmental factors that shaped her forefather's lives and also her own. Depicting these elements in her paintings, Sarrita provides a visual articulation of the earth's language. Stylistically, Sarrita utilises traditional Aboriginal techniques such as 'dotting' but also incorporates unorthodox techniques inherited from her late father, as well as self-developed practices. Her art is a fusion of the past, present and future and represents the next generation of artists who have been influenced by both their indigenous history, and current Western upbringing. Sarrita creates frenetic energy on the canvas with her Lightning series and searing heat with her Fire series. Her aesthetic has a universal appeal and provides an entry point for people to experience the power and uniqueness of the Australian landscape and its harsh c

  • Tarisse King Nampin  (+)

    Biography : Tarisse King was born in Adelaide, South Australia on the 4th September 1986. She is the older sister to fellow artist, Sarrita King and daughter to the late highly regarded artist, William King Jungala (1966 - 2007). Tarisse inherits her Australian Aboriginality from her father who was part of the Gurindji tribe from the Northern Territory. The Gurindji tribe came to public attention during the 1960s and 1970s when members employed by the Wave Hill cattle station led a landmark case which became the first successful land rights claim in Australia. Like her forefathers, Tarisse is an assertive individual who is determined to communicate the inseparable connection she and her ancestors have with the Australian land. Tarisse spent the majority of her youth in Darwin, a unique city in northern Australia that is subject to extreme weather conditions; from torrential rain and cyclones in the Wet Season to oppressive and immobilising heat in the Dry Season. This climatic impact is seen in her artwork but it was also the road trips she travelled between Darwin, Katherine and Adelaide, where her father resided, that are the main influences in her paintings. The journey of 3027 kilometers, right through the heart of Australia, reveals extreme expanses of varying landscapes and provided Tarisse with the isolation and time to develop a unique perception of the land which can be seen in her paintings such as Pink Salts and My Country - Tracks and Rivers. Moving to Adelaide at the age of 16, it was her involvement with her father's art that lead Tarisse to experiment with her own designs and techniques, resulting in a style of her own. Drawing on the Central and Western Desert Aboriginal dotting style of painting the land topographically, Tarisse captures a complex and varied soul of the land. In homage to her father, her adaptation of Earth Images defines Australia as if looking from outer space back to land; the viewer is given a heightened feeling of drifting above th

  • Michael Wilding

    Biography : Born in 1953 and educated in Europe, Michael Wilding studied figurative painting and planned to go into the Fine Arts. Sidetracked for thirty years while he pursued a very successful career in music and acting. He played saxophone and flute for bands in London and Los Angeles. As an actor, he appeared in films, a soap opera, and Off-Broadway productions in New York. Needing to create has always been an essential part of who he is. Wilding moved to New Mexico almost twenty years ago to pursue that desire. He discovered stone sculpture in 2001 and has not looked back. Through sculpture, all of his passions come together; art, music, and performance. “I listen to jazz or rock and roll while literally dancing around the stone, applying the chisel. I think there is a huge correlation between sculpting and music,” he says. Lyrical and rhythmic, his abstract pieces radiate energy, giving back the joy he feels in his work. Although initially he did not consider showing his art professionally, he realized that “having the work out there in the world is part of the creative process. One creates energy with a piece of work, and cannot hold onto it.” Wilding describes his artistic process as “discovering it along the way”. Once he starts, he does not spend much time contemplating his decisions in the moment. Fascinated with light and planes, he follows the lines he uncovers by allowing the inherent qualities of the stone to guide his hand, and his thoughts. He is filled with wonder regarding the sedimentary life in limestone and the ability of Carrara marble to hold the light. “Each stone has a different dynamic. Working with marble is slower than with limestone, so the resulting piece takes longer to unfold, and there are different considerations along the way.”
