Yankunytjatjara artist Linda Puna presents her first solo exhibition Awari! - Wow! at Alcaston Gallery to coincide with the exclusive launch of her collaboration with the ethical fashion label Unreal Fur, in conjunction with Mimili Maku Arts.

Puna presents a collection of bold and spirited paintings that interweave elements of the rocky desert Country surrounding Mimili and the related Tjukurpa stories; alongside more figurative depictions and observations of community such as Toyota 4WD vehicles, houses, cardboard boxes, windmills and water tanks. Puna’s gestural brushstrokes and confident use of colour bring to life the reality of remote community life in a fearlessly honest and playful way.

Over the past 18 months, Linda Puna collaborated with Unreal Fur to co-design a capsule collection of outerwear featuring her unique and bold brushwork. As part of the project, Puna directed a fashion shoot on Country including young women and men from Mimili Community. The project supported the development of skills in photography and videography and celebrated the diversity of First Nation creative expression. 

Awari! - Wow! is an exclusive one-week-only exhibition, including a showcase of Puna’s iconic paintings, a series of unique screenprints on paper, as well as photography and video content created during the fashion shoot.
