THE SPINIFEX ARTS PROJECT emerged out of work made for a Native Title claim determined in 2001. Rawa Nyinanyi celebrates the unbroken chain of knowledge and Law intrinsic to the Spinifex people that is expressed through their remarkable paintings.
Outstation Gallery and the Spinifex Arts Project commissioned a catalogue to document this exhibition and to link the artists with their work. In 2015 renown portrait photographer Stephen Oxenbury captured the Spinifex artists on country as they painted for the Tarnanthi Festival of Contemporary Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art. These striking photographs stage the artists in their land, of their story and connect the portraits with the paintings.
