The Philosophy of Water: Baluka, Galuma & Napawarri

14 June - 11 July 2012

The Philosophy of water highlights the extraordinary diversity and complexity of Yolngu art. Baluka with his classical line and elegant carving confirms his place as an artist of the highest order. The rarity of his works makes this exhibition so exciting. Exhibited next to the dynamic paintings of emerging artist Napawarri and the confident and sophisticated bark works of Galuma, the refreshing and contemporary interpretations of the saltwater landscape and old cultural mythologies of the north are invigorated and courageously redefined in this exhibition. Opens 14th June 2012 at Short St Gallery Broome.
