Damien & Yilpi Marks

Husband and wife team Damien Marks and Yilpi Marks collaborate to make colourful paintings of their Central Desert homelands. Damien grew up at Papunya and his early influences and learning came from senior artists Clifford Possum, Billy Stockman and Uta Uta Jangala. He was a young boy at Papunya School when the elders at Papunya were setting about creating the foundations of the Desert art movement. Damien has maintained much of the heritage of Clifford Possum, incorporating images of ceremonial artefacts and regalia into the paintings. Yilpi Marks grew up at Ernabella, where both her parents were artists. Later she moved to Papunya and has merged the stylistic influences and use of colour from the artistic traditions from both communities. The paintings of this talented partnership are a rich tapestry of colour and imagery. The essential structure of the works are maps of Country, showing ranges of hills, rocky outcrops, creeks and waterways. Overlaid into the maps are elements of ceremonial life and artefacts made to accompany ritual performances. Also featured are aspects of bush food and various types of desert grasses and vegetation. The paintings create a lively vision of the desert landscape and its cultural importance to traditional owners.

Insider Art Spring 2017

Insider Art: Spring 2017 showcases the creative achievements of incarcerated prisoners from across Western Australia.  A joint initiative of the Department of Justice and Fremantle Prison, this quarterly exhibition will be on show in the old Print Shop (Fremantle Prison Gallery). These exhibitions are always diverse in style and ideas. Pieces exhibited include those from traditional Aboriginal artists with 50,000 years of culture to draw upon; those created by prisoners engaged in tertiary courses in contemporary art practice; and everything in between.  Participation in the creative process offers prisoners more than simple education and recreation. The production of artworks can be an important component in their rehabilitation as it allows them space for creativity and personal development. This can help prisoners to reframe their identity in positive ways. For many, it becomes a connection to family, culture and country.  Entry to the exhibition is free, and many of the works are available for purchase.

Sarrita King & Tarisse King 2017

Images of Ancestors, Land, the elements and Indigenous heritage are at the core of paintings by sisters Sarrita King & Tarisse King. Sarrita King & Tarisse King share an Indigenous heritage connected to Gurrindji culture at Wave Hill in Central Northern Territory. They share this through their father’s line and combine this with their own upbringing in Darwin and Adelaide, and through travelling the continent and experiencing the great diversity it provides. Creating canvases that evoke the detail and elemental forces of the Land, the King sisters have paid tribute to their father’s artistic and philosophical ideas. Some of their largest canvases take in the totality of land or fire or water, creating an energetic portrayal of the sustaining elements of nature. The fine detail and the reference to massive forces work together to produce engrossing artworks that can be viewed on a macro or micro level. The infinite layers of dots add up to a massive image of the grand forces at work on the planet. Having shared studios and collaborated together on single paintings, Sarrita and Tarisse now live over 4000 kms apart. But still they manage to synchronise their lives and their artistic output in order to exhibit together and progress their reputations. They maintain their position as one of Australia’s most exciting and engaging creative teams. The work of Sarrita King & Tarisse King will be on exhibition in the upstairs galleries at Japingka from 22 September to 31 October.
