Kerry Madawyn McCarthy

Kerry Madawyn McCarthy has refined a range of technical skills for this, her second solo exhibition at Japingka Gallery. She draws on a wide range of stories from her ancestral home at Bulgul on the Daly River in Northern Territory, south-west of Darwin. Recurring images of the bush foods appear –  wild gooseberries, fishnets and dilly bags traditionally used for food gathering, mussel shells, and goose eggs. The Crocodile Creation story called Awurrapun is told by local fishermen, recounting how two Ancestors came to create the crocodile species.

Kerry Madawyn McCarthy produces all her stories with an elegant spatial quality that highlights the importance and beauty of these ancient stories. In this exhibition, Kerry Madawyn McCarthy is exploring a wide group of subjects, which reflects her respect for and search for knowledge of the indigenous laws and traditions of her family country at Bulgul.

Kerry Madawyn McCarthy will attend the opening of this exhibition, which will be open for viewing in Gallery1 from 22 May to 8 July 2015.
