Sonya Edney – My Journey through Ingarrda Country is the artist’s statement about her homelands and her life journey to where she is today. Sonya has been painting for thirty years and now presents her first solo exhibition. Sonya is a Ingarrda-Wadjarri woman from the Gascoyne region of mid-west Western Australia. Aspects of the Gascoyne country inform all elements of Sonya’s paintings. She captures the vast spinifex plains and parts of the Gascoyne River that flood, leaving behind winding waterways and clay pans. This country extends out to Mt Augustus the massive rock monolith named Burringurrah in the local Wadjarri language.

Sonya also reflects on the power of the night skies over desert country. Her paintings of the Milky Way show the close affinity between the sky and the land, so that one sphere appears as a continuation of the other. Sonya is recalling her experiences camping out under the stars when her nanna would tell all the children the stories of the stars at night. One of the significant stories includes the Emu in the Sky, where the body of the emu is seen in the dark patches within the Milky Way. Sonya Edney expresses her stories with her skilful use of colour, bringing energy and warmth to images of Country and the powerful elements of nature that rule that domain.

Sonya’s paintings are on display at Japingka Gallery from 19 July until 20 August 2019.
