Gabriel-Maralngurra-Catalogue

Gabriel Maralngurra was introduced to rockart by his uncle, Thompson Yulidjirri (c. 1930-2009), who took him to see the paintings on Injalak Hill when he was a child. Gabriel is inspired by the rock art galleries around West ArnhemLand which are often densely layered with paintings. Rock art painting is a tradition which has been dated back to at least 45,000 years before the present.

Kunwarrdebim is a small collection inspired by the magic and influence of the rock art galleries that surround Gunbalanya. Such galleries hold imagery that teaches people stories and lessons that influence how they live their lives today. This bright collection showcases the most recent designs by our artists and has been mostly sewn on country by our Studio Coordinator, Lily Durland. Thanks to the help of CDP for the use of there sewing space!

We have also called upon our friends at @sisterbuffalo to make a few custom pieces that are reworks of vintage garments with Injalak textiles. Finding inspiration from Kunwinkju people repurposing old stories and lessons from the rock art to apply to their lives today.

We can’t wait to show you more as we get closer to the date!
