Arone Meeks

May 2021 sees the launch of Evidence, a solo exhibition by Cairns-based artist, Arone Meeks. Known for creating works that speak of cross cultural interaction, relationships, gender, spirituality and his environment—these new works by Meeks also explore notions of anthropological fetishisation of First Nations people. Paintings and prints punctuated by an intense ultramarine blue signal this recent suite of works and draw as much on his heritage and narratives as a Kuku Miidiji man from Cape York, as his ongoing personal quest of discovery.

From his considerable domestic and international success in Europe and the USA from the 1980’s onward, Meeks has continued exploring contemporary issues facing an ancient culture—but a bridging point between his past and most recent work was catalysed by the discovery that his great grandfather was the renowned English ornithologist/entomologist, Albert Meek.
