AMATA WALKA WIRU : Beautiful paintings from Amata: SHARON ADAMSON & THE ARTISTS FROM AMATA
Born in Amata, South Australia in 1995; Sharon Adamson is a young emerging artist with an incredible talent. Her paintings are bold and bursting with movement, marked by broad brush strokes and colour palettes. Sharon follows in the footsteps of her great grandfather and grandmother, the celebrated Australian artists Kunmanara (Tiger) Palpatja and Kunmanara (Wawiriya) Burton. Sharon paints the stories of her grandfather depicting the Wanampi Tjukurpa, (Water Snake Dreaming). The Wanampi takes centre stage in her work, with her gestural brush strokes bringing the Tjukurpa to life, with searing fluid planes of colour and energy. At such a young age Sharon has already made quite an impression with prominent exhibitions and inclusions in public and private collections. Short St Gallery In conjunction with Tjala Arts is proud to present Amata Walka Wiru : Beautiful paintings from Amata. Sharon Adamson is supported in this exhibition by fellow Tjala artists, Janie Lewis, Sandra Ken, Tjimpayi Presley, Mona Shepherd, Muna Kulyuru and the Mitakiki Collective.
