Landscapes in Ochre
Japingka Gallery presents Landscapes in Ochre, featuring older works by major Kimberley artists using ochre pigments. Many of these artists helped set benchmarks for a new generation of painters to ponder and aspire to.
Major works by Rover Thomas evoke the raw experience of the Kimberley. The artist’s brush strokes and gestures all recorded in layers of ochre paint that are swept over the surface of the boards as he painted. Other leading artists from the time include Queenie McKenzie, Jack Britten and Henry Wambini.
