Alcaston Gallery is delighted to present Nellie Ngampa Coulthard’s fifth solo exhibition Ngura Itjanungka - Country After Rain

Coulthard’s paintings of Yankunytjatjara Country are refined in both technique and composition. Accenting bold pinks, golden browns and burnt oranges - the colours of the central and eastern deserts of Australia – her paintings are defined by the outstretched linear branches of the Acacia Murrayana Wattle that sit at the heart of her composition and which have become synonymous with her practice. 

In Ngura Itjanungka - Country After Rain, Coulthard presents a sublime collection of light-flooded canvas’ of dappled brushstrokes and creamy white hues, introducing a softness of palette and mark-making to her practice. This shift signifies a refined progression in her practice and reveals a quiet confidence in an artist whose career continues to rise year after year

Coulthard has garnered wide admiration and institutional recognition for her emerging practice. In the past year alone, she was named a finalist in three major national awards: the Ravenswood Australian Women’s Art Prize, the highest value professional artist prize for women in Australia, the prestigious Hadley’s Art Prize, a significant $100,000 acquisitive Australian landscape prize presented by the Hadley’s Orient Hotel in Hobart, Tasmania, and, the Arthur Guy Memorial Painting Prize, at the Bendigo Art Gallery, Victoria where she was awarded second-runner-up in the People’s Choice Award.

Ngura Itjanungka - Country After Rain is on exhibition at Alcaston Gallery Exhibition Space, 84 William Street, Melbourne from 17 July – 2 August 2024.
