Born in 1930 in Victory Downs, an outstation near Pukatja, Ernabella, Sandy Brumby only discovered his passion for painting when he reached his sixties. Yet, in his relatively short career he has already caught the attention of high profile collectors and major art institutions alike, with his works having been acquired by significant public collections, including the National Gallery of Victoria and Queensland Art Gallery.

In this exhibition of small yet strong paintings, Sandy Brumby displays a unique approach in telling his story, as well as a strong connection to his country and his culture. His artworks are raw and bold, with thick applications of paint and a distinct use of palette, revealing his love for colour and composition.
