This long awaited US debut solo exhibit for Western Australian artist Nyarapayi Giles, highlights a selection of paintings depicting the artists sacred site ‘Warmurrungu’ near Karku, the artists’ birthplace. This is the country where the ancestral emus went digging amid the mesas and the ridges and the claypans, digging for ocher and where ocher has been collected for millennia for ceremonial use. It is this site and the associated Tjukurrpa that inspires Nyarapayi’s powerful and unique paintings. Now in her early 80’s Nyarapayi Giles has gained recognition as a key artist in the contemporary Indigenous art world. Her works are collected by collectors and institutions around Australia and internationally, including The National Gallery of Victoria and the British Museum.
