Rammey Ramsey (b. 1939, Bow River Station, East Kimberly, WA) has painted for ceremony throughout his entire adult life, and began painting professionally in 2000. He employs striking monochromes and bold colour to depict his stunning gorge country and ancestral lands. This is Warlawoon Country, the name of which he borrows to titles many of his paintings.⁣ Ramsey’s work teases out the complexities of Gija world views and the impact of pastoral occupation on his land.

Ramsey has exhibited widely in Australia, and in group shows in the US, Paris and London. His work is held in the collection of the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia, Sydney and the Ian Potter Gallery, Melbourne.
