Speaking in Colour showcases for the first time the beautiful collection of indigenous Australian art put together by Carrillo and Ziyin Gantner. The exhibition features paintings from the Central Desert, barks from Arnhem Land, and works from the north of Western Australia and Queensland. Exhibited across five galleries, Speaking In Colour presents watercolour works by Albert Namatjira, his children and others in the Hermannsburg school; paintings by Western Australian artist Julie Dowling and master painters from Papunya, Turkey Creek, Balgo Hills and Utopia. The exhibition provides a wonderful insight into a wide range of approaches to the use of colour in the expression of connection to country and in telling the important stories that emanate from the land.
