burrinja & Injalak Arts presents
(Stone Country Paintings)
03 Sep - 08 Oct | Burrinja Gallery
Injalak Arts is located in the stone country of West Arnhem Land, in a landscape crossed by rocky escarpments, wetlands and monsoonal forests. Stories from the land have been told by paintings on rocks for at least 20,000 years.
This project is the most recent moment in the deep time story of Kunwinjku culture, showing that kunwarrdebim (rock art of the stone country) continues to inspire contemporary West Arnhem Land artists. The exhibition is a collaborative project of Injalak Arts and Burrinja, presenting an overview of Kunwinjku bim (painting) from the last three decades.
Artists include: Allan Nadjamerrek, Freddie Nadjamerrek, Gabriel Maralngurra, Gary Djorlom, Gavin Namarnyilk, Gershom Garlngarr, Glen Namundja, Graham Badari, Isaiah Nagurrgurrba, Joey Nganjmirra, Lawrence Nganjmirra, Maath Maralngurra, Roland Burrunali, William Djawirda Manakgu, and Timothy Nabegeyo.
