Indigenous artists continue to find inspiring and distinctive ways to paint within the many different cultural and language groups that make up their heritage and background. How We Paint- Eight Indigenous artists present recent works that showcase their specific approach and style of painting.

Michelle Cooper is a Pitjantjatjara artist who lives in Alice Springs. Her closely woven fields of dots provide a shimmer of colour representing the starry clusters of the desert night skies. Kuru Warun is a Gunditjmara artist living in coastal NSW whose strongly structured compositions reveal the underlying designs of ancient landscapes including dry riverbeds and traditional body paint markings.

Michelle Possum re-interprets imagery and colour palettes from her father Clifford Possum into new statements about her Grandmother’s country. Husband and wife team Damien and Yilpi Marks combine stories from their different central Australian homelands into dynamic compositions. Utopia artists Janet Golder and Belinda Golder Kngwarreye along with Rochelle Bird Mbitjana unify images of Utopia traditional life into canvases that express the symbiotic relationship of people with the land. The exhibition is on display at Japingka Gallery until 10 April.
