Nomad Art and Mangkaja Arts Resource Agency are proud to present a new body of prints created in partnership with Basil Hall Editions in 2014. These new etchings and screen prints represent traditional connections Mangkaja artists have to the Kimberley region.
Typically diverse in style, the etchings are reminiscent of the seminal drypoint prints created by Mangkaja artists at Northern Editions with Basil and Leon Stainer during the Kaltja/Business Conference in 1996. Artworks depict important sites and natural resources including waterholes and many varieties of plant food.
Mangkaja artists began printmaking in 1994 with Martin King from the Australian Print Workshop (APW) in Melbourne. The artists produced a wide variety of images in the first workshop at Mangkaja Arts and have sustained a strong printmaking practice since, resulting in works being acquired by various public and private collections, including the British Museum and the National Gallery of Victoria.
