Group Exhibition: Our Place and Whiskey Tjukangku: New Works - Art Collector

Whiskey Tjukangku, 960-11 Arrernte Country, 2011. Acrylic on linen, 91 x 101cm
Iwantja Arts and Crafts will feature two shows from their artists at RAFT artspace. ‘My Place’ is a group show by emerging men artists depicting stories of country and home life in Indulkana community, SA. The second show by Iwantja Arts is a solo exhibition by Whiskey Tjukangku. Whiskey first exhibited at RAFT artspace in 2010, and held his first solo show in 2011 at RAFT. Whiskey’s former work as a cowboy, and the journeys he made mustering cattle all over the desert as a young man, forms a strong part of his sense of identity. Now, as an older man, Whiskey likes to recall through his paintings that very time of his life and the places he feels most connected to.
