Exhibition Opening: Saturday 29th May 2021 2-4 pm

"It is in this extraordinary environment that Hubert Pareroultja learnt to paint from an early age. His life of painting and living in the landscape has led to a unique understanding and vision of the country to which he belongs. His meticulous eye, and sense of the subtleties of colour translated through watercolour, is now collected and recognised world-wide. In 2020, Hubert won the prestigious Wynne Prize for landscape painting at the Art Gallery of NSW. It was the culmination of a story of an artist whose unique vision of the land has been decades in the making. And now, in Tnagkara Nuka (Cultural Dreamings)—held in conjunction with the Iltja Ntjarra Art Centre—the artist’s stories will be told through the painted surface to an ever-widening audience."
