2014 Sonia Kurarra - River Country
Presenting Sonia Kurarra's second solo exhibition at Aboriginal & Pacific Art, held in association with Mangkaja Arts, Fitzroy Crossing, WA.
Sonia paints the sandy billabong country along the stretch of the Fitzroy River that runs directly behind the community. After the floodwaters recede, there are billabongs that hold a plentiful supply of parlka [barramundi], kurlumajarti [catfish] and bream. Her recent works are striking in their richly applied colour and abstract approach to the representation of river country.
