Darwin-born Lorraine Kabbindi White will exhibit barks and works on paper depicting her family’s country at Mankung Djang, western Arnhem Land. The influence and teaching of her grandfather Lofty Bardayal Nadjamerrek AO is clearly evident in her confident use of fine white lines set against the red ochre background to paint the spirit beings, fauna and flora of her grandfather’s country, often in his specific “Stone Country” x-ray style.

Genevieve Kemarr Loy is from Utopia, around 300 kilometres north-east of Alice Springs; an area which has produced a number of well-recognised artists including Emily Kngwarray, the Petyarr sisters and the Ngal sisters. Genevieve is the granddaughter of Nancy Petyarr and was taught to paint by her father Cowboy Loy Pwerl. She depicts specific custodial subjects associated with her country, particularly the Bush Turkey story, with a bold use of colour and detailed patterning.
