In an exhibition of new work titled The Gulf, Kurtjar artist Ian Waldron, showcases his oeuvre developed over many years of practice. About the show, Ian comments: Every work that I have ever painted is anchored in The Gulf one way or another. My art is the visual representation of my identity - I am my country. As a title, The Gulf is my homeland, but also an ambiguous reference to a chasm between two worlds. A collection of acrylic painting, print and sculpture/installation, this show portrays themes and motifs characteristic of Ian’s past work, such as portraits of rural life, symbols of heritage & ancestry and evidence of his early career, painting signage for supermarkets. The artist states, “Recurring motifs in my works comprise characters, sites and memories which are important to me, such as Bloodwood totem and native life on Delta Downs Station up in the Gulf of Carpentaria”.
