Water Dreaming by Felicity Nampijinpa Robertson

Felicity Nampijinpa Robertson is a Warlukurlangu Artist who lives in Central Australia.

This story belongs to Jangala men and Nangala women. The site depicted in this painting is Puyurru, west of Yuendumu. In the usually dry creek beds are water soakages or naturally occurring wells. Two Jangala men, rainmakers, sang the rain, unleashing a giant storm. In contemporary Warlpiri paintings traditional iconography is used to represent the Jukurrpa, associated sites and other elements. In many paintings of this Jukurrpa curved and straight lines represent the ‘ngawarra’ (flood waters) running through the landscape. Motifs frequently used to depict this story include small circles representing ‘mulju’ (water soakages) and short bars depicting ‘mangkurdu’ (cumulus & stratocumulus clouds)

In 2009 the then gallery manager Heather Charlton introduced us to Tamisha's artwork. We fell in love with this happy desert art design and we think you will too!

Under the Southern Cross by Garry Purchase

We live in a beautiful country.

From the ocean and beaches to the mountains, rivers and the red centre of the outback.

Yet we as Australians both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal can't seem to find a common ground to make things work and move forward. This is a common problem for First Nations people from all around the world.

Look up at the stars. The stars were there before us and they'll still be there long after we're gone. They are the same stars our ancestors would have gazed upon thousands of years ago and they are also the ones future generations thousands of years from now will see.

Looking at the night sky is all it takes to put what we were, are and ever will be into perspective. It highlights how insignificant and petty the separatist ideology of racial prejudice, segregation and class systems really are.

Localised thinking, not just here, but all over the world is our downfall. In the end none of that really matters. In the grand scheme of things we are ALL in it together on this lonely little planet as one race, the human race.

That is what needs to be realised. Enjoy the beauty of what we have, work together, don't take anything for granted and love each other.
