This exhibition showcases new paintings by senior Kaiadilt artist Netta Loogatha. She first exhibited in 2005 as one the renowned seven sisters from Bentinck Island who burst onto the art scene with their vibrant and unique depictions of their country in the Gulf of Carpentaria, Queensland. Her vibrant paintings mirror the tropical landscape; her expressive brushstrokes and use of brilliant colour perfectly portray the countless oyster reefs and salt pans that dominate Bentinck Island. Loogatha celebrates the landscape through her paintings, as well as using her art to teach the younger generation about the history and importance of her country. Her work has been collected by major institutions including the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne and the Queensland Art Gallery, Brisbane.
