Colours of Ngarrindjeri Country is Amanda Westley’s third solo exhibition at Japingka Gallery. Amanda distils the mood of landscapes around the Coorong, Fleurieu Peninsula and Victor Harbor regions of South Australia. Her paintings read as intense landscapes that hold the rhythms and moods of these coastal places. The artist builds up structures using rows of dots in varying tones, then brings them into tension by colliding them into adjacent rows and structures. By changing the directional compositions of her paintings, Amanda suggests the forces of nature that are shaping the landscape and our wider environment. There is the suggestion of the constant flux between the sea and the land and the forces of wind and rain.

Amanda Westley draws on her family’s Ngarrindjeri inheritance and the bond to land and location. Her paintings expand on her own journey into Ngarrindjeri culture and strengthen her ties to her forebears and to the journey forward representing culture and environment in a modern context. The exhibition is on display at Japingka Gallery until 30 September 2022.
