Land & Identity

Jonathan Kumintjarra Brown | Queenie McKenzie | Maggie Watson Napangardi | Lin Onus | Rover Thomas

The connection to country is central to Aboriginal life and culture. It is elementary to Aboriginal art. This exquisite and intimate exhibition brings together works by artists with a strong connection to their land - be it the Kimberley, Central Desert, Victoria’s Barmah Forest or Maralinga. Yet Queen McKenzie, Rover Thomas, Maggie Watson Napangardi, Lin Onus and Jonathan Kumintjarra Brown had quite different connections to their country, from integral to removed to unknown. The paintings on display illustrate more than the relationship to country - they ask fundamental questions about the artist's identity.
