“Formally, of course, the paintings coming out of Warmun are gorgeous.

The rich dark ochres and sharp, clear outlines are luscious and satisfying and it’s obvious that Rover Thomas’s legacy is alive and well.

More than that, though, Warmun artworks underscore the resonance between Australian Aboriginal attitudes toward ‘country’ and Maori attitudes towards ‘whenua’ in Aotearoa New Zealand.

The fact that the artists from Warmun paint their country ‘with’ their country is a powerful metaphor, and seeing their artworks here – having travelled from the East Kimberley to the South Pacific – they feel like taonga gifted from our cousins across the water.”
