JUDY HOLDING The Wren and the Pardalote
Judy Holding’s new series of small watercolours on timber board beautifully encapsulate the rich imagery of the Australian landscape; delicate depictions of native flora and fauna that observe the intricate relationships of the Wrens and Pardalotes that inhabit the artist’s property in rural Victoria. Produced during the quiet and isolated period of Victoria’s enduring lockdowns, Holding created The Wren and the Pardalote collection to bring joy to herself and to those around her.
JUDY MARTIN Kurunpa Tjunanyi - Putting The Spirit Back In Place
Alcaston Gallery is excited to present new paintings by senior Pitjantjatjara artist and ngangkari (traditional healer) Judy Martin in her long-awaited first-ever solo exhibition, Kurunpa Tjunanyi - Putting The Spirit Back In Place. Known for her bold visual language, Martin’s artistic practise draws inspiration from her wealth of cultural knowledge and intimate understanding of Country on the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (APY) Lands in north-west South Australia. Her paintings connect her father’s Country in the west of the APY Lands and her mother’s Country in the south, two locations geographically distant from the other, yet tethered by the artist’s familial ties.
