NONGGIRRNGA MARAWILI: PROGRESSION 2017

06-Jun-2017 - 01-Jul-2017

"The art which Nonŋgirrŋa makes is not time dependent. It is not a reaction to a fashion or a moment. It is as it would have been in millennia past. Independent of the Western narrative of progress. And yet it is contemporary both because it is made now but also because it is absorbed by the society which exists now. People get this. Although they cannot speak Yolŋu matha or visit remote Arnhem land or fathom Indigenous spirituality. And her art changes through time and shifts into new medium and brings new vision. All whilst charting the Yolŋu cosmology obsessed with the spirit’s progression through a cyclical never ending journey- from the flesh to the water and back again. "

-  Will Stubbs, Co-ordinator, Buku-Larrnggay Mulka Centre, 2017

It is a great honour for Alcaston Gallery to present the fifth solo exhibition of acclaimed artist Nonggirrnga Marawili: Progression. The artist's visual language is again extended in both composition and medium, with paintings on bark, board and aluminium.
