JAP­INGKA Gallery’s new ex­hi­bi­tion Pil­bara Coun­try shows the work of 10 artists from Yin­jaa-barni Art Cen­tre in Roe­bourne.

Yin­jaa-barni in the Yind­jibarndi lan­guage means ‘com­ing to­gether’, which per­fectly de­scribes the feel­ing you get watch­ing the artists work along­side each other in their stu­dios in Dal­gety House.

Although work­ing to­gether, all the artists have de­vel­oped dis­tinctly in­di­vid­ual styles in the works that ex­press their deep love for their home­lands around the Fortes­cue table­lands.

Clifton Mack in his sub­tly lay­ered paint­ings cap­tures the shim­mer­ing sun­light skim­ming across the richly coloured rock faces.

Mar­lene Harold in her del­i­cate works al­ludes to the Mar­rga Cre­ation Story of Yind­jibarndi coun­try, while Allery and Melissa Sandy rep­re­sent from an aerial per­spec­tive the phys­i­cal beauty of the ge­o­graph­i­cal for­ma­tions and flora of their home­lands.

View the ex­hi­bi­tion at Jap­ingka Gallery daily, at 47 High Street, Fremantle, or on­line at Jap­ingkaa­bo­rig­i­nalart.com.
