Gareth Sansom is a major Australian artist whose career spans more than forty years. Welcome to my mind provides an overview of the development of Sansom’s work, yet it is not a retrospective. The display is comprised of selected works that indicate certain preoccupations and recurrent motifs in the artist’s practice. Sansom produces paintings, drawings, photographs, video, and digital images. His personal approach to picture making can be interpreted in terms of assemblage and photomontage. Pop-expressionism, sociological comment, personal references, humour, and sexually provocative imagery, are all present in his work.
Now open, The world is not a foreign land brings together work by Timothy Cook, Djambawa Marawili, Ngarra, Rusty Peters, Freda Warlapinni and Nyapanyapa Yunupingu. Crossing three geographically and culturally distinct regions—the Tiwi Islands, the Kimberley, and North-eastern Arnhem Land—each artist presents sometimes strikingly different perspectives on what constitutes Indigenous contemporary art.
