JGM Gallery presents the work of a group of women who are deeply dedicated to their painting practice, employing an ancient technique, mixing and developing subtle and varied colours from the natural earth. The variety and nuance of their palette is beautiful, and feels both tough and gentle at the same time.
The dramatic landscape of the Kimberley region (or ‘Country’ as it is known in traditional culture), is ingrained in the artist’s DNA. The women are at one with nature, where traditional life, ceremony and important sacred sites have influenced their work for over 60,000 years. Their superb skills were learned from elders and have been passed down through generations.
