SHIRLEY MACNAMARA

In 2021, Alcaston Gallery is thrilled to present a collection of guutu sculptures by the highly celebrated artist, Shirley Macnamara.

Macnamara spinifex grass sculptures are an expression of the western Queensland country where the artist lives and works; created using the natural materials Macnamara encounters while she is out mustering throughout Spinifex Country, a region named for the hardy, stringy grass that covers its rich soil

Macnamara's sculptures often take the form of vessels – specifically guutu, a traditional word meaning a vessel that can carry things. These contemporary works not only reflect the artist's rich life experiences on Country but also honour cultural resonances from the past, symbolically carrying the traditions of her mother and ancestors before her. 

Macnamara’s time-consuming, considered and process-based practice reveals sophisticated multi-layered meanings that draw upon issues of environment, history, politics, culture, family, and deeply personal emotions. 

An artist of great insight, Shirley Macnamara guutu are poetic objects of immense beauty and poignancy.

KAREN MILLS

Alcaston Gallery is pleased to present Karen Mills' latest collection of work in October 2021.

Mills' practice investigates themes of identity and memory, and often her feelings of connection and disconnection with her Balanggarra heritage. Her abstract paintings are generally landscape-based, inspired by her experience and memory of country. These works capture a sense of the rich history and survival of culture hidden beneath layers of sediment.
