ABORIGINAL GROUP SHOW

Colour Field

09 May - 08 June 2019

We rarely see Australian indigenous artwork on this side of the Tasman, so as we reset to ‘recovery mode’ after a busy Auckland Art Fair Tim Melville is pleased to present a fresh and broad-ranging exhibition of Aboriginal painting from across Australia.

Colour Field includes new works sourced from our recent visit to the Darwin Aboriginal Art Fair presented alongside pieces from Tim’s personal collection. The exhibition also features works on paper, canvas and bark consigned from three remote Aboriginal Art Centres: Warakurna Arts near Alice Springs, Warmun Art in the East Kimberley and Buku-Larrngay Mulka at Yirrkala in Arnhem Land.

Artists:

ANMANARI BROWN – Warakurna Artists
NOLA CAMPBELL – Warakurna Artists
SADE CARRINGTON – Warmun Art
ANNUNCIATA DARTINGA – Durrmu Arts
SALLY GABORI – Mornington Island
NORMA GILES – Warakurna Artists
