Nora Wompi: Ode to Nora Wompi - Art Collector

Nora Wompi, ‘Yurunkurnpa’. Acrylic on linen, 140 x 117cm. Courtesy: the artist and Suzanne O’Connell Gallery, Brisbane.

  In association with Martumili Artists and Warlayirti Artists, Suzanne O’Connell Gallery pays respects to the under-heralded titan of Australian painting, Nora Wompi. This exhibition offers a remarkable opportunity to survey the works produced in the final seven years of Wompi’s life, as she moved between working with Warlayirti Artist at Wirrimanu (Balgo) and Martumili Artists in Newman. This covers a period of increasing minimalism in Wompi’s practice, as the defined line work, circles and dots of early paintings were increasingly replaced with broad fields of gestural colour which run across the canvas like trails in the wilderness.

Exhibition opens: 2–4pm Saturday 1 September 2018
Exhibition closes: 6 October 2018
Location: Suzanne O’Connell Gallery, 93 James St, New Farm QLD
