Alcaston at Depot Gallery, Sydney

Alcaston Gallery has a stellar reputation for fostering and supporting some of the best in contemporary indigenous Australian art, and until October 27, Sydneysiders will be able to view five of their most exciting new artists in a special showing at Depot Gallery, 2 Danks Street. On display will be the work of Emily Evans, Sally Gabori, Clinton Nain, the late Womikinimirri Puruntatameri and Cornelia Tipuamantumirri.

Emily Evans approaches the subject of Balibal, the spotted stingray, with a deftness of touch and great sensitivity, bringing both personal experience and a contemporary awareness to her work. Likewise, Clinton Nain’s paintings and mixed media installations draw both from the domestic realm, and engage with broader discourses such as race, gender and the colonisation of his people. Sally Gabori was named winner of the inaugural Gold Award for contemporary Australian painting earlier this year, an extraordinary feat for the artist, who began painting on canvas in 2005.

Joining Evans, Gabori and Nain are emerging Tiwi elders, the late Womikinimirri Puruntatameri and Cornelia Tipuamantumirri, whose recent exhibition with Alcaston Gallery was a resounding success. Their rich, ochre creations draw on a very personal connection with their country, and Sydney viewers of Alcaston’s profile are certainly privileged to be allowed such an intimate look into these artists’ experiences through their works.

Take advantage of this extraordinary feature on five of Australia’s most talented contemporary indigenous artists by heading to Depot Gallery at 2 Danks Street Waterloo – closing October 27, so get in quick!
