Innovation and tradition
This recent body of work from Mimili Maku Arts shows the strength and consistency of their established painters, and the exploration of new mediums and techniques which result in a beautiful and powerful evocation of the artist’s story.
Under the skillful hands of Ngupulya Pumani, Tuppy Goodwin, Willy Martin and Puna Yanima, their muted palette produces an ephemeral shimmer that has been a hallmark of their work. The spatial relationships of a contrasting and limited palette mark the work of Betty Pumani which has become increasingly more bold exuding strength and confidence.
A highlight of this exhibition is the wonderfully loose work of Mumu Mike Williams. Previously, he worked on canvas where he developed his bold linear style which translates on paper to a striking graphic intensity. It is the fluidity of the ink wash, used with the blood red paint, that makes these works undeniably powerful.
Robert Fielding, known for his intricate and precise linear dot landscapes, has been exploring digital media as seen in our Rising Stars exhibition earlier this year. His work in this exhibition is a continuation of this new direction and development in his work.
