REMOTE, ISOLATED, BOTH HARSH AND BEAUTIFUL are the lands of the Spinifex people – their art is vibrant and breathtaking. Usually accustomed to working on large canvases, the works in this exhibition are all 60 x 75cm – mini versions of their regular work but no less striking. In fact, this point enhances the artists’ skills and expertise to so adeptly adjust proportion and scale.

Working with these images and the arresting landscape photos by Amanda Dent from the Spinifex Arts Project, was a joy. The final grid arrangement of the paintings felt like a tapestry or carpet – weaving the colours and patterns in both tonal similarity and contrast. It was like forming one large work out of 30 smaller works. Much like the Spinifex themselves – individual artists and idiosyncratic visual storytelling – that all come together to make a unified whole, each an integral part of the same story.
