KURUNITJA - SPIRITED: New works from Ernabella
Short St Gallery presents Kurunitja - Spirited, an exhibition of new paintings and ceramics by Ernabella’s leading artists, including Pepai Jangala Carroll, Yurpiya Lionel and Rachael Mipantjiti Lionel. The artists have created an impressive body of new work that depicts stories of country, culture and faith. The artworks capture the gentle strength of country and spirit, as the artists look for ways to express the intangible. Rachael Mipantjiti Lionel paints stories and messages she receives through her dreams, Pepai Jangala Carroll and Rupert Jack depict sites of memory, rising stars Langaliki Lewis and Janice Matjala Stanley aim to capture the light, wind and stormy skies of their powerful country. In the words of Rachel Mipantjiti Lionel, 'This work has spirit, kurunpa. But it is also strong. It is not only what we see with our kuru, our eyes, but what we feel in our hearts, our spirit and what we hold onto inside. We are painting feeling.' Join us in celebrating this engaging exhibition. Opens 24 August 2017, all welcome.
