Country, people, cultures come together to heal a sick man

Making good our dreams of home

p2542 Taylor Dream of Home humpies cu 300

 

The many ideas, memories, emotions brought into the room in Jennifer Taylor's exhibition, Dream of Home, create a common ground around something that is fundamental for each one of us here in Central Australia, a sense of being at home here with one another, Aboriginal and other Australians – on our best days, our collective dream. KIERAN FINNANE reviews.

'What holds you, the beauty or the damage?'

p2132-Taylor-RAJT7

 

A show at Raft Artspace takes us on a depth journey into landscape painting in the hands of a fine artist, Jennifer Taylor. Her enquiry over three years, conducted in Eastern Arrernte country around the present-day Ross River Resort, led her to think about the possibility of painting landscapes as portraits. Could a landscape painting be “as searching and intimate, as full of life and empathy as a good portrait”? KIERAN FINNANE  reports.

Passing through light and time

 

 

 

Rodd Moss may mostly paint by the hard light of day, but the retrospective at Araluen covering his work in Alice Springs over three decades opened by candlelight and in an atmosphere of reverence. Why did this feel so fitting and potent? asks KIERAN FINNANE.
