VIEW EXHIBITION CATALOGUE

Noŋgirrŋa Marawili is regarded as one of the most important artists working in Australia today. Her highly sophisticated bark paintings, Larrakitj and works on paper reflect an engrained, natural understanding of her culture, history and environment, as she creates fluid, organic patterns that allude to her strong familial ties.  

This exhibition at Alcaston Gallery entitled Dha`irr’yun, meaning ‘breaking waves’ in Yolŋu, alludes to Noŋgirrŋa's enigmatic portrayals of rough seas, waves crashing against rocks and on the shore in her fluid ochre designs, as well as referencing a shift to the desaturation of colours in her new barking paintings, Larrakitj and works on paper.

"Remembering before too long the world will be a happy place again soon - stay safe" 

- Nyunmiti Burton, Director, APY Art Centre Collective

Alcaston Gallery feels so privileged to represent artists from many regions across Australia but especially the stunning red remote outback areas of the APY Lands of South Australia. 

Most art centres in the APY lands are now closed for the health and safety of artists and staff, however whilst anxiety is high, many artists are imagining major projects and exhibitions for a happier future. 

Reminiscing about major exhibitions over many decades in Australia and overseas and remembering the collectors’ excitement also makes me happy and hopeful. We trust all our dedicated clients with art in their homes and offices is not only helping to relieve the personal anxieties but also bringing joy. 

Art Centre staff have prioritised the health of many elders; their well-being depends on moving to a safe environment where medical treatment is accessible, with some family contact, even via Skype or Face-time, like we all need; although the barriers seem almost impenetrable right now, imagining Mrs Burton’s words means something for us all. 

This catalogue contains many new works for exhibitions planned in 2020 - this is a special sneak peek for our valued clients. For those who could assist in supporting these incredible artists by acquiring a work we would be so appreciative, however if now is not the right moment for you, please enjoy viewing these remarkable works. 

We hope you enjoy viewing this exhibition catalogue during these unprecedented and challenging times. We will continue to showcase the exhibition over the coming weeks via our website and social media. 

Pleasecontact Gallery Manager Glenn Manson for all enquiries, high resolution images, installation images or further information.

Alcaston Gallery is delighted to present an online selection of paintings by the late Peggy Napangardi Jones (1951 – 20 August 2014) with 20% of all proceeds being donated to the Purple House.

 

Peggy Napangardi Jones was known for her vivid and colourful depictions of Australian flora and fauna. This selection of artworks dating all the way back to the beginning of the artists career in 1998 is a true celebration of the joy of Peggy Napangardi Jones and Australia’s unique landscape.  With an innate sense of placement her paintings of birds, animals, and bush tucker remain as appealing today in their graceful simplicity and joie de vivre.

Peggy Napangardi Jones was born ay Phillip Creek Station in 1951 to her Walpiri mother, and her father, a Warumungu man.  Napangardi Jones began painting in 1996 at the old 'Pink Palace' in Tennant Creek, Northern Territory after joining the Julalikari CDEP Women’s Arts & Crafts program.  Napanagardi Jones absolutely loved to paint and through her expressive and colourful artworks she could share her unique view of her world. 

 

Artworks by Peggy Napangardi Jones are held in important collections and major institutions including National Gallery of Victoria, National Gallery of Australia, Art Gallery & Museum of the Northern Territory, Parliament House Collection, Northern Land Council Native Title Collection, The Burkhardt-Felder Foundation Collection, Switzerland and many other major collections worldwide.

 

The Purple House provides culturally safe dialysis and support across remote Australia, currently providing dialysis in 16 remote communities and running a mobile dialysis unit called the Purple Truck.  Alongside the remote dialysis, The Purple House also offers social support and aged-care services.  The Purple House was a lifeline for Peggy Napangardi Jones and Alcaston Gallery is pleased to be able to support the Purple House to continue the much needed work in central Australia.
