This is us, this is the way it is – that’s what Sally Mulda’s paintings of town camp life seem to say. Grog scenes abound and when I visit Tangentyere Artists studio where she paints, she is working on one, putting it aside, taking it up again. It shows a paddy wagon in the river and two policemen pouring out grog, while four disconsolate Aboriginal people walk away. But police aren’t always present, nor is grog. With the same kind of steady observation Mulda (pictured at work) shows the scenes of everyday sociability, writes KIERAN FINNANE.
