Week 3

Timmy Payungka

was born in 1942 and lived until 2000, he was from the Papunya Tula school of painting. He was born west of Wilkinkarra. in the 1960's he and his family were taken to Papunya,

According to Daphne Williams of Papunya Tula, a trip west from Alice to Kintore with Timmy could take two or three times as long as a trip without him, so great as his enthusiasm for stopping along the way to tell his companions the stories of the land they passed through. He is also creddited as being one of the most exhibited aboriginal artists

being the most exhibited artists is a very great honour there was a time when the aboriginal art movement exploded and there was exhibitions all over the world

David Malangi

was born one the 27th of june 1927 and died in 1998. He was a bark painter from Arnhem Land and one of the most well known figures in contemporary indigenous art. When one of his designs was used on the australian one dollar note in 1996 with out his knowledge it gave rise to issues of aboriginal copyright in australia, he was later compensated.

He painted on clear, red ochre or black backgrounds. He used much broader and bolder brushstrokes than other Arnhem Land bark painters. His work includes depictions of the sea eagle, crow, snake and goanna.

He represented Australia at the São Paulo Art Biennial in 1983. He contributed ten hollow logs for the Aboriginal Memorial at the National Gallery of Australia in 1988. He travelled to New York in 1988 as part of the Dreamings exhibition of Aboriginal art. In July 2004 an exhibition opened of David Malangi's work at the National Gallery of Australia called No Ordinary Place.

This weel a also attended the our metro mob exhibition it was very eye opening and different from the our metro mob exhibitona the festival centre. The Our metro mob exhibition took place at Tandanya in a small single room in the gallery. It included works but local adelaide artists only and showed a wide range of medium including sculpture, photography,painting, and even jewelery design. The most powerful part of the exhibition was seeig old techniques used in new and exciting ways a blending of the styles.
