Injalak Arts Prints from the stone country of Western Arnhem Land

01 May - 31 May 2019

 

This body of work explores the links between Indigenous cultural heritage, environment and aesthetic traditions of artists from western Arnhem Land.

 

The artists represent a unique group of painters and print makers who have maintained the distinctive practise associated with the traditions of rock art painting in western Arnhem Land and the knowledge it purveys. The artists, many of whom are now deceased, include some of the great practitioners of Kunwinjku art including Graham Badari, Bardayal (Lofty) Nadjamerrek (dec), England Banggala (dec), Solomon Girrabul (dec) and Ezarahia Kelly.

 

The Stone Country of western Arnhem Land also known as the plateau country adjoins Kakadu National Park. The rocky outcrops of the escarpment dominate the landscape while adjacent flood plains, permanent rivers and billabongs are abundant with life of countless species of animals and plants.

Warlayirti Artists and Printmakers

01 May - 31 May 2019

 

Warlayirti Artists from Balgo are well known for their beautiful, high quality artworks including limited edition prints.

 

The prints are the result of a long-standing collaboration between the Balgo artists and the printers from Northern Editions in Darwin. This partnership resulted in numerous editions of etchings and screen prints and expanded to include Japanese woodblock printing for the men.

 

The collection of editions available at Nomad Art include significant senior artists Eubena Nampitjin, Elizabeth Nyumi, Ningie Nanala, Helicopter Joey  Tjungurrayi and Bai Bai Napangarti and some the first prints created by these artists between 2002 – 2007.

 

As senior custodians from Balgo, Lake Mackay, Canning Stock Route, Billiluna, Tanami and Great Sandy Deserts, the artists hold a unique position in Aboriginal and artistic history.

Warlukurlangu Artists

01 March - 29 March 2019

 

This month we have delved into the archives to reveal classic etchings by senior Warlukurlangu artists Shorty Jangala Robertson, Paddy Japaljarri Stewart, Paddy  Japaljarri Sims and Rosie Nangala Flemming.  The artists are recognised for their bold colour and strong traditional iconography. The paintings tell the story of the artists’ connection to their country, the features of the landscape, the plants and animals that are found there and the creation stories from the Dreamtime.

Each artist has his or her own particular style and distinctive colour palette. The artists love to experiment with different techniques ensuring that the artworks and styles are constantly evolving.
