Indigenous Art

Gallery 9

Predominantly focusing on the Kimberley region of Western Australia, this selection of paintings includes work by well-known Warmun artists Rover Thomas, Queenie McKenzie and Hector Jandany.  The works in this gallery convey a sense of the artists' intimate relationship with their ancestral country by the use of the topographical or 'birds-eye' view and style of painting. Many works in this gallery are painted in the traditional ochres of the area in which the artists were born, or live and work.
