Contemporary Aboriginal Art #41 - Elaine Woods

It’s been a while since we’ve featured a specific artist or artwork on  our blog. I promise I will try to post more regularly updates of our stock and make you discover new artists!

Along with Nellie Marks Nakamarra and Gracie Ward I was telling you about a few days ago, Elaine Wood is one of the favourites at the gallery at the moment with deep reds and touches of orange or green in her works. Just like Nellie’s works,  Elaine’s works are walking out the door in a flash.

The texture in her works is fantastic and it catches the eye of many every week.

Elaine Woods  Wani Wani  acrylic on linen  120 x 150 cm - $6,125

Wana Wani tells the story of two women on a long journey through the desert country from Irruntji through Tjukurla to Docker River where they meet other women and then move on to Kintore.   In Elaine's country in the Pitjantjatjara lands the two women have been wandering through the sand hills and from rock hole to rock hole.  The women are now camping and eating bush tomatoes and goanna that they have caught.
