AK22672CMS.jpg

Highly esteemed Yolŋu artist and Madarrpa elder, Noŋgirrŋa Marawili is regarded as one of Australia's most important contemporary artists.

Using natural materials such as earth ochres combined with a striking use of pink ink from recycled print toner cartridges, Marawili's practice alludes to her strong cultural and familial ties, whilst simultaneously revealing her own visceral experience and knowledge of the land and stories of north-east Arnhem Land.

In August 2022, Alcaston Gallery is honoured to present a significant body of new work by Marawili, including paintings on bark, composite timber board, paper and larrakitj, that reveal and celebrate the evolution of Marawili’s practice and her influences over the course of her artistic career.

On exhibition at the Alcaston Gallery Exhibition Space from 10 August Marawili's exhibition will extend until 26 August 2022.

AK22520_CMS.jpg

Opening 31 August 2022, Alcaston Gallery presents a new collection of paintings by senior Pitjantjatjara artist Tuppy Ngintja Goodwinin her first solo exhibition at Alcaston Gallery.

Goodwin's paintings are depictions of Country, Anatara, and the Maku Tjukurpa, the Witchetty Grub story.

“Antara, (is) a sacred place for Anangu, and the Maku Tjukurpa (witchetty grub story). There is a special rock hole at Antara where women perform inma – ‘inmaku pakani’ – and afterwards there is enough maku to feed everyone. Antara and Maku Tjukurpa is really important for Mimili women, we paint this place and its stories, keeping them strong.” 

Highly celebrated for her practice, Goodwin has exhibited nationally and internationally, and has been recognised as a finalist in a number of major national awards; most recently in the 2022 Telstra National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art Awards presented at the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory (MAGNT) and the 2022 Hadley’s Art Prize, presented by the Hadley’s Orient Hotel in Hobart, Tasmania.

Tuppy Ngintja Goodwin's exhibition will be presented at Alcaston Gallery until 23 September 2022.

Kunmanara Martin (1963 - 2022) - 2022

31-Aug-2022 - 23-Sep-2022
AK22524_CMS.jpg

Alcaston Gallery, in conjunction with the artist's family and Mimilu Maku Arts, is honoured to present an exhibition of paintings by late Kunmanara (Judy) Martin (1963 - 2022) to respectfully pay tribute to an artist of great joy and intuition. 

A senior Pitjantjatjara artist and ngangkari who lived and worked in Mimili community on the Aṉangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (APY) Lands in north-west South Australia, Ms Martin was known for her bold visual language and her deep joy for storytelling that radiated through her paintings.

Her paintings connected her father’s Country, Wakura, near Nyapari, in the far west of the APY Lands, with her mother’s Country, Puntiri, in the east, two locations that are geographically distant from each other, and yet intrinsically connected through the artists own identity and lived experience. 

In her later years, Ms Martin's paintings became renowned and exhibited around the world, celebrated for the raw expression of her spirit and connection to Country. She gardened national recognition, was announced as a finalist in the Bayside Acquisitive Art Prize in Melbourne in 2019, and the John Leslie Art Prize at the Gippsland Art Gallery in Victoria in 2020. 

By request of Mr Martin's family and community and in honour of her artistic legacy we respectfully present this exhibition of paintings by Ms Martin, created in the last years of her career.
