THE SPINIFEX ARTS PROJECT emerged from work made for a Native Title claim determined in 2001. SELECTED celebrates the powerhouse that is Spinifex Arts Projects and the unbroken chain of knowledge and law intrinsic to the Spinifex people as expressed through their remarkable paintings.
Forming a distinctly identifiable style, Spinifex artists have continued to flourish and their work has been rewarded with national and international recognition.
This new series of work by four male artists, Lawrence Pennington, Fred Grant, Ned Grant and Timo Hogan, embodies the spirit and connection to country through their practice.
The stories, the landscape and the relationship between inma (the singing of country) and the act of painting, imbue these works with the powerful knowledge and sense of place and identity of the artists.
Fred, Lawrence and Ned are established artists who have been collected by major institutions nation-wide and overseas. Timo Hogan is an emerging artist who has recently rekindled his love for painting and is dedicated to his practice and the depiction of his country, Lake Baker.
