Sydney Morning Herald: Reflecting on ‘Tjala Tjukurpa/Honey Ant Story’ by Yaritji Young

July 7, 2020

Buxton Contemporary director Ryan Johnston reflects on one of his favourite local art works.

“To me looking at these works is like experiencing an event of significant power; you’ve got this wild colour tearing across the canvas in multiple trajectories, some go directly to the bottom, some contour wildly across it, some traverse this amazing lattice of complex line work and explode forcefully down the bottom into this densely layered mass of concentric circles that bounce off in different directions over the edge of the canvas as if to suggest this painting is just one episode in a much broader series of events that extend out into and across space and time.”
