This new body of etchings is by Stewart Hoosan, Marjorie Keighran, Jack Green, Nancy McDinny from Waralungku Artists in Borroloola, a remote community on the McArthur River in the Northern Territory in the the Gulf of Carpentaria. It is set in an arresting landscape of rocky hills, cattle-grazed scrub, billabongs, and wide horizons.
Waralungku artists continue to produce exciting contemporary art. They have a unique voice and style. Borroloola artists depict the life, history and political issues of the region, as well as the distinctive beauty of the surrounding landscape, flora and fauna. The images are layered with a sense of past histories and continuing connections.
This series of etchings was produced during a workshop with Darwin printmaker Jaqueline Gribbin at Borroloola in 2020.
