Goora-goorang yawoorroobtha bandanbeng boorroo
'These old men, they are all strong together'
Goora-goorang yawoorroobtha bandanbeng boorroo translates to ‘these old men, they are all strong together’. This men’s show is a demonstration of the power of Country which artists Ted Carlton, Richard Bloomer, David Brown, Richard Wilson and Nathan Thomas transmit through their art. Country gives them strength, a quality which is imbued in the works themselves.
Miriwoong artist Ted Carlton demonstrates his strong connection to Country through sharing stories of the station days at Moolanba (Carlton Hill Homestead). Ted depicts his knowledge of stock handling, droving, and mustering, whilst also teaching about significant Miriwoong sites.
In this exhibition Richard Bloomer explores the Two Little Sisters Dreaming, telling this story through different experimentations with colour and form. Richard’s Country is Timber Creek, located in the Top End about two and a half hours east of Kununurra.
David Brown uses painting to keep his connection with his grandfather’s Country at Kiwirrkurra strong. Kiwirrkurra is located in the sandhill region of the Gibson Desert. David does this through a wide variety of mediums, yet this connection remains evident across his diversity of styles.
Richard Wilson showcases his artistic finesse by depicting a broad range of subject matter, from more traditional themes to engaging with the everyday. Richard’s Country is RB Community, off the Duncan Highway in Western Australia.
Nathan Thomas demonstrates his multidisciplinary skill as an artist, working across painting, ceramics, and carving. His artworks combine knowledge of ancestral Country with contemporary experiences, employing this broad range of media to explore these vast themes.
Nathan’s Country is Bedford Downs, located about 5 hours southwest of Kununurra in the Kimberley region.
