All About Art - Annual Collectors Exhibition: Counterpoint•Ginger Riley Munduwalawala (c.1936- 2002)
Alcaston Gallery is thrilled to present a selection of works with immaculate provenance by the late Ginger Riley Munduwalawala (c.1936- 2002) alongside the late Mirdidingkingathi Juwarnda Sally Gabori (c.1924 -2015) from 16 February to 28 March 2024.
Using bright, luminous and often contrasting colours, Riley depicted his Country and its ancestral beings. Garimala the snake, who created the Four Archers; Ngak Ngak the white-breasted sea-eagle and guardian figure; the ceremonial shark’s liver tree; the Four Archers themselves; and, the Limmen Bight River are iconic depictions of his work.
Ginger Riley was the first living Australian First Nations artist to be honoured with a retrospective and publication at the National Gallery of Victoria, in 1997. This retrospective, a ten-year overview of his painting life, was monumental and still considered the most exhilarating and superb of any exhibitions focusing on an Australian artist’s career.
Alcaston Gallery is honoured to present these rare paintings in 2024.
