‘Notes from my Country’ is Naomi’s second full solo painting show with us, thirteen Acrylic on Linen artworks boldly exclaim the strides Naomi is making, thirteen reasons to take note of one of Australia’s most important Indigenous practitioners.
Her work remains as fresh and vibrant today as it was in the early days under the tutelage of Robbi Neale at the Lockhart River Art Centre. The confidence in the brushstrokes evident in each, and every, work as Naomi challenges herself to explore new ideas, concepts, and techniques to give life to her voice.
Canvases have become larger, more intense, fluid. The control of colours engaging, designs increasingly complex and the narrative ever more subtle, all-in direct response to the increasing demand and expectations of the collectors and Institutions that are lining up to purchase her work.
The future for Naomi looks very bright, the pipeline of Institutional events remains full for the foreseeable future and as Naomi’s star shines brighter so her ideas seem to blossom and grow, enabling ever more complex projects and ideas to be developed.
