Rising Stars 2022
From Buku-Larrnggay Mulka Centre in northeast Arnhem Land to Papunya Tjupi in the Western Desert; from Spinifex Arts Project in WA’s Great Victoria Desert to Tjala Arts in far northwest of South Australia – it is pretty hard not to get excited about ‘Rising Stars’.
Each year this show becomes more powerful, with phenomenal emerging artists finding new ways to tell ancient stories.
In 2022 it is our great pleasure to have metal works by Wurrandan Marawili on the walls. Last year the exhibition, ‘Murrŋiny : a story of metal from the east’, captivated the art world and Wurrandan is taking this new art movement using old street signs and is making it his own.
Intensely detailed works from emerging artists Puuni Brown Nungarrayi and Renita Brown are full of the movement of sand and storms, while Muna Kulyuru from Tjala Arts delivers exquisite, intricate maps of country.
These works are contrasted by the bold presentation of tjukurpa by Dora Parker and Winmati Roberts from Spinifex Arts Project. Here the Wanampi (water serpent ancestral beings) and waterholes share a deep knowledge of Anangu law.
I’m sure I say it every year but you do not want to miss these Rising Stars.
