 Mawukura Jimmy Nerrimah produces electrifying paintings that are full of movement, echoing the illusion of heat, drought and fires. Bearing the signature characteristics of the desert artists of the West Kimberley and Alice Springs, Nerrimah uses a singular palette, painting with only two or three colours applied over a single background colour. He uses fine optical lines and concentric circles, reflecting ceremonial dancing and song lines. The exhibition is a tribute to this esteemed artist, who sadly passed away early this year.
