What if this photograph is by Albert Namatjira?

We can’t wait for our trip to Adelaide in October. Our installation named “What if this photograph is by Albert Namatjira?” will be launched at the 
Art Gallery of South Australia during Tarnanthi on Thursday 12 October. You must see this! It is a speculative project where Aranda artists at the Itlja Ntjarra Many Hands Art Centre look closely at the Battarbee Collection, imagine who might have taken an historical collection of photographs, and respond with their own paintings. Thank you to artist Tom Nicholson for his mentorship.

Parrtjima - A Festival in Light

We were invited to create the
Honouring Space installation at Parrtjima/ A festival in light in Alice Springs. The installation was inspired by the historical Hermannsburg Churchin windows suspended in the desert, as if viewing the landscape. Gloria Pannka’s painting was represented in the style of large-scale windows, as if looking out onto a landscape rendered in watercolour. The remainder of the installation evolved over 10 nights with Mervyn Rubuntja, Kathy Inkamala, Vanessa Inkamala and Reinhold Inkamala returning to the Alice Springs Desert Park to paint a scene especially for the festival. The artworks were displayed between two arches made by Aboriginal-owned social enterprise Tangentyere Constructions, which is based in Alice Springs.

New collaborative works with Artist Tony Albert! As Ivy Pareroultja explains:

I don't buy them junk foods, because I'd get sick. I love damper, bush kangaroos, vegetables; I love catching fish at Finke River. I painted the area going towards Ormiston Gorge'. It is the Dreaming of the two possums. The possums are going towards the waterhole.
