Event Details

Artists from Arnhem Land and the Tiwi Islands, Northern Territory, have long been making artworks from natural ochres, using imagery that expresses their profound knowledge of and connection to Country, its creation stories and its ceremonies. Earth and spirit come together in almost every aspect of Indigenous life – universal law, ceremony, sacred sites, and in the artworks that become infused with ancestral power through their making. From Earth to Spirit presents a range of art works in various mediums including bark paintings, ochres on canvas, works on paper, etchings and carvings. This includes paintings recently donated by Dr Milton Roxanas, through the Australian Government’s Cultural Gifts Program, and further works loaned by friends of the University Gallery: Aboriginal & Pacific Art Gallery, Sydney and private collector, Catherine (Kate) Croll.
