Naive Aboriginal art from Mwerre Anthurre

Our first show of 2011: Marvellous naive works from three Mwerre Anthurre Artists; Kukula McDonald, Adrian Robertson and Billy Kenda. Each quirky, cameo like painting is distinctly that of the artist and no other: from the wild black cockatoos of Kukula McDonald, to the painterly and enigmatic landscapes of Adrian Robertson, and the strangely coloured vistas of Billy Kenda's country, peopled with trucks, cars, helicopters and planes, and inhabited by figures with a sense of extraordinary character and purpose.
Each of the artists is separated from their land, and this painful reality is expressed through their art.  One realises the depth of yearning that is there - the haunting cries of Kukula's cockatoos seem audible, Adrian's landscapes have a dreamlike quality, and what is it about those truck drivers in Billy's almost alien landscape?
Very affordable, unique and collectible.
For more information visit our website from Thursday 6th January.
The show opens at 2pm on Saturday 8th January 2011, and continues until Sunday 30th.
