Alcaston Gallery presents important new paintings by Karen Mills. The new body of paintings forms part of an ongoing series by Karen Mills that began with a bush trip in 2013, assisted by Waringarri Arts, WA in which the artist accompanied Kittey Malarvie to visit her country at Sturt Creek Station.

The ethereal paintings illustrate the artist's observations of this landscape, and the rich history of Indigenous culture pre-colonisation, often hidden beneath layers of sediment formed over thousands of years. The use of clay adds a provocative dimension to Mills’ paintings.
