National Treasures Bark Paintings By Wally Mandarrk

National Treasures Bark Paintings By Wally Mandarrk

from November 14, 2015 @ 10:00 AM until March 13, 2016 @ 4:00 PM
Latrobe Regional Gallery

Latrobe Regional Gallery is proud to be exhibiting Wally Mandarrk’s world renowned bark paintings in the exhibition National Treasures. Sourced from The Cbus Collection of Australian Art, this truly significant national treasure will open LRG’s newly renovated upstairs gallery, Gallery 4. Indigenous artist Wally Mandarrk (c.1915-1987), a senior member of the Barabba clan from Arnhem Land, was a man of significant status who had undergone initiation rituals and ceremonies, and was believed to possess special powers known as mankordang.

These powers were said to allow Mandarrk to travel distances at an unnaturally fast pace and conduct sorcery. He was revered for his relationship with the Mimih spirits that populated the area, which are prevalent in Aboriginal spirituality. Mimih spirits which are seen to pervade bush food, animals and plants, form the major part of Mandarrk’s subject matter. They are painted with thick, white paint made from natural materials. Mandarrk was one of the last artists of the Arnhem Land area to engage in rock painting, and as such, his bark paintings have a strong correlation to this practice in both the materials used and subjects depicted. Mandarrk’s bark paintings are represented in the collections of the National Gallery Of Victoria and the Art Gallery of New South Wales. His works has been included in numerous exhibitions including Crossing Country: The Alchemy of Western Arnhem Land Art, Art Gallery of New South Wales (2004) and Men of High Degree, National Gallery of Victoria (1997).

FIND. SAVE. KEEP. Jenny Peterson

FIND. SAVE. KEEP. Jenny Peterson

from November 14, 2015 @ 10:00 AM until March 13, 2016 @ 4:00 PM
Latrobe Regional Gallery

In the exhibition Find.Save.Keep Jenny Peterson investigates the art of collecting, and utilises found objects as printing plates. All humans participate in the act of collecting, as part of our everyday existence. Peterson’s interest in collecting comes from the desire to use found objects to make images, and to explore their material qualities. Peterson aims to reveal and re-present something of the history of the objects, and they become a new collection of off-site markers.

Peterson collects broken road signs and other found objects during road trips in the local region. Scratched and dented metal surfaces are fixed as traces of memory into soft paper. Signage techniques are mimicked by gathering and printing words about collecting, the souvenir and the journey.

Kevin Mortensen – drawings, prints, painting and sculpture.

Artist Statement

The exhibition at Gecko Studio Gallery at Fish Creek is titled Transmitter. That is the role of the artist, to absorb, consider then to “transmit” values and ideas to the receiver/viewer. Without a receiver/viewer even the best art is like a phone off the hook, just about useless.

My prints, drawings, paintings and sculpture come from the sea, the costal bush and the night sky. Birds and flying things, man-made structures and reflections upon the nature of life all appear in my work.
