2017 Lawrence Pennington
Aboriginal & Pacific Art is honoured to present the solo exhibition of Lawrence Pennington, senior Spinifex artist and law man from Tjuntjuntjara in Western Australia. Lawrence paints the Tjukurpa of his people, the Spinifex people. His paintings, with colours heightened by their contrast to the dark background, are confident in line and form, giving a sweeping sense of the country they depict. Lawrence paints with great expression and vision, jewel-like paintings that capture, in diverse combinations of features, the important stories and places of his homeland.
