Shakara Montalto (close up of etching)

Star of Dennis, Dennis Thorpe, woodblock on Magnani paper

An exhibition of new installation, etching, and relief works by Aboriginal artists Shakara Montalto (Gunditjmara) and Dennis Thorpe (Muruwari). 2013 has been an introduction to printmaking for these artists. The works created are brief excursions on the surface of the complexities of existence. The dynamics of symbolism, representation, drug use in society, cultural identity and sustainability are shifting. Bright pop colours, found objects and the power of language are icons across the spectrum of culture represented in this exhibition.
