'Riding Home' - Cars & Country Workshop

We've been having a great time at Yarliyil doing something a little bit different. Instead of painting on canvas, Stan Brumby has been kind enough to donate car parts from his own back yard that the artists can clean, prepare and paint on.

Using recycled materials with their own histories and memories that have come to be part of the Halls Creek landscape, the artists have begun to lay down their own stories of country directly onto these new surfaces. Though at first the artists found it a little daunting to figure out how to use these materials, I think the results speak to their excitement and enthusiasm. The artists' excitement started spreading across town, with extended family, residents and tourists all coming in for a look.

    Biddy Timbinah - CGG Award for Excellence

    “My Father’s Country”

    A personal exploration of the artist’s family and land in the North of WA. Beautifully crafted with an innate use of colour and textures recreating the rhythms found in the geography of the land of her father – as seen from the bird’s eye perspective. This is a work of great sensitivity created with an honesty and passion rarely seen and even harder to master.
