The artists from Waringarri Aboriginal Arts in Kununurra, north-eastern Western Australia, are celebrated today for their unique ability in mixing these ochres together to create a myriad of pastels, olive greens and brooding shades of blue in contemporary arts practice. Through burning, mixing and the careful juxtaposition of ochres and charcoal, these leading artists from the East Kimberley, have developed formulas to produce beautiful hues and stunning blends of colour to express their culture on canvas as evidenced in this exhibition.
