VIEW EXHIBITION CATALOGUE

Judy Holding’s new series of small watercolours on timber board beautifully encapsulate the rich imagery of the Australian landscape; delicate depictions of native flora and fauna that observe the intricate relationships of the Wrens and Pardalotes that inhabit the artist’s property in rural Victoria. Produced during the quiet and isolated period of Victoria’s enduring lockdowns, Holding created The Wren and the Pardalote collection to bring joy to herself and to those around her.

Alcaston Gallery is excited to present new paintings by senior Pitjantjatjara artist and ngangkari (traditional healer) Judy Martin in her long-awaited first-ever solo exhibition, Kurunpa Tjunanyi - Putting The Spirit Back In Place. Known for her bold visual language, Martin’s artistic practise draws inspiration from her wealth of cultural knowledge and intimate understanding of Country on the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (APY) Lands in north-west South Australia. Her paintings connect her father’s Country in the west of the APY Lands and her mother’s Country in the south, two locations geographically distant from the other, yet tethered by the artist’s familial ties.

VIEW CATALOGUE

The incomparable Sally Gabori’s painterly interpretations of her Bentinck Island home combine Country, colour and the artist’s mind’s eye to portray places of deep personal significance to the artist.

Her signature application of vivid colour and expressive brushstrokes brilliantly depicts her island Country and impart a real and intimate sense of who Gabori was and where she was from.  Her immense legacy was honoured in the major retrospective exhibition Mirdidingkingathi Juwarnda Sally Gabori: Dulka Warngiid – Land of All at the Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art, in Brisbane, Australia from 21 May – 28 August 2016 and at the National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne from 23 September 2016 – 21 January 2017. 

In 2022 Gabori will be honoured with a major solo survey exhibition at the distinguished Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain in Paris, France.
