Description

A Walmajarri man living and working from Fitzroy Crossing in the West Kimberley, he combines diverse influences drawn from television and the traditional Kimberley craft of boab nut carving, desert iconography and the epic characters of the Narrangkarni (Dreamtime) to create uncanny technicolour vignettes.

All Mixed Up is complimented by a selection of paintings made in the 1990s by Butcher Cherel Janangoo, a key elder of the Gooniyandi language group instrumental in the retention of men’s law ceremony at Muludja Community. This vibrant pairing offers a glimpse of the rich variety of cultures clustered around Fitzroy Crossing’s Mangkaja Art Centre. Curated by Emilia Galatis in collaboration with Lynley Nargoordah.
