Glorious Gloria

For some years now, Aboriginal Art Interiors and Orient House of Glebe NSW have enjoyed a symbiotic relationship – I hang my art on their walls and it truly compliments their range of wonderful African and Asian artifacts and furniture. This picture illustrates how tribal objects work so well together, wherever they originate from. Set against a deep tobacco coloured wall, “Leaves” by artist Gloria Petyarre, employing a minimal cream and white palette, compliments the raw boldness of an African mask and the aged patina of an antique chinese alter table.

Sally Gabori unleashed

This extraordinary Sally Gabori painting is the latest in my stable of works – measuring 1500 x 2000mm it is an amazing example of Sally’s bold unfettered approach to shape, colour and contrast. Now in her late 80’s, Sally continues to consolidate a new language in contemporary Aboriginal iconography – challenging abstract non indigenous art and yet finding her historical expression and motivation in the world’s oldest living culture
