STORIES: ABORIGINAL COLLECTION V

 

We are very honoured to be featuring a stunning new collection of Aboriginal art from Joy Nangala Brown, Shanna Napanangka Williams and Amanda Hinkelmann. These artists all have extraordinary stories to tell. Learnings and recollections of their ancestors’ life experiences through traditional iconography and symbolism are woven in their artwork. 

This collection boasts both intensely cool and warm palettes, with pieces hailing deep-sky midnight blue and Dreamtime teal to intensely warm palettes of scorched earth red and riverbank sand white.

Learn more about these pieces and the stories they hold.

 

 

MURRIYANG

Murriyang represents evenings spent on Country with the artist’s family, taking time to sit and watch the stars that shine overhead. Every star tells a story.

As you watch them glisten, you know that each one has so much to share, as the winds blow between heaven and earth, carried into the night sky and connecting all of us as one.

A piece by Amanda Hinkelmann, this magical piece features a beautiful blend of shapes, lines and dots, resulting in a unique composition that adds a sense of depth to your space.

NAPALIJARRI-WARNU JUKURRPA

The Seven Sisters Dreaming is a Jukurrpa (Dreaming) following the seven ancestral Napaljarri sisters, who can still be seen in the night sky today within the cluster of seven stars in the Taurus constellation (more commonly known as Pleiades).

In contemporary Warlpiri paintings, traditional iconography is used to represent the Jukurrpa, associated sites, and other elements. Often depicted in these paintings is the female star Yantarlarangi, who chases these seven sisters for having stolen the night from her.

Elaborate and moody, this piece brings a layered effect to your space with juxtaposing patterns depicted on either side of the canvas. Mesmerizing linework and abstract shapes enhance the neutral palette of deep blue, warm orange-toned beige, and soft white tones.

WUBUNGINYA

A true love letter to the ocean and its power over the human race, this artwork represents a dive beneath the surface, letting ourselves be embraced by its pure peace and calmness.

To dive beneath is to feel reborn and recharged - like a cleanse for the soul. As we dive below, kicking our way deeper into what feels like another reality altogether, the ocean has the ability to share with us a deep sense of tranquillity.

Soft and effortless, this piece uses traditional Indigenous Aboriginal dot painting to create a uniform feel, yet embraces imperfections with uneven lines and randomised composition. A cool blue palette brings a sense of serenity, with inclusions of soft white and darker blue to create depth and movement.
