Clifton Mack

Clifton Mack is an elder of the Yindjibarndi people whose country is around the Millstream Tablelands in Western Australia’s Pilbara district. Clifton Mack was born in Roebourne in 1952 and began painting in 2001. Clifton Mack’s father was the revered Yindjibarndi Rainmaker, Long Mack, who carried the knowledge of water for his people.

Knowledge of water, its locations, seasons, and an intimate understanding of the freshwater-bringing serpent, Warlu, is a basic and fundamental tenet of Yindjibarndi lore. Much of Clifton Mack’s work relates this mindset of water and how it flows through Yindjibarndi country. Clifton Mack experiments boldly with colour, often using complementary colours to create a different dimension to his work, and taps into non-traditional painting styles to further explore his ideas through art. Clifton Mack was selected to visit Italy in 2006 as part of the Antica Terra Pulsante exhibition in Florence. Aboriginal art status – Established artist.
