ReDot Fine Art Gallery is delighted and extremely honoured to host Sarah Brown’s inaugural overseas show, REMOTE.

REMOTE is a collection of 45 works on canvas and gesso boards, a stunning body of work inspired by the magnificent Western Desert Landscapes and Sarah’s life-changing contributions in Indigenous communities, which captures the audience with its honesty and profound connection to country.

Sarah Brown is a remarkable woman. Not only is she an extremely talented and inspirational artist, based in Alice Springs, but also a nurse, health care worker and she was instrumental in setting up the Purple House, the headquarters for the Western Desert Nganampa Walytja Palyantjaku Tjutaku (WDNWPT), a health organisation for Indigenous communities which translates as ‘keeping all our families well’.

In the last decade WDNWPT has established and continues to operate eleven remote Indigenous community dialysis centres, which have become a beacon of hope in a chronic epidemic which sees Indigenous Australians suffer renal failure at a rate 15-30 times higher than national average.

Whilst Sarah is the CEO of WDNWPT, and her every working hour is spent supporting the Indigenous communities, she finds painting is a release. A nocturnal activity that allows her to reflect, consider and attempt to order the no doubt chaotic professional path she has chosen to pursue. Her work is in exceptionally high demand as collectors are captivated by her ability to render the imagery of the Western Desert that she has been servicing as a nurse for almost 24 years.

Sarah says her influences are several: Impressionist and post-Impressionist painters; local artists’ work, especially Rod Moss’, from whom she had some technical guidance early on in Alice Springs. But her true influences are much more profound than any of those – they are simply the influence of life, of leaving a mark and giving back. In a world full of hardship and inequality, she works relentlessly to leave a better mark, a more humane mark and a lasting mark from her remote Australian outback posting, and every one of her works achieves this with authority and that “uniqueness” that is Sarah Brown.

The exhibition begins on Wednesday 16 November runs until Saturday 31 December 2016, with an official opening night on Thursday 1 December 2016, which will also be attended in person by Sarah. A must-see show for anyone interested in understanding the current plight of modern day Indigenous health issues and also to see the beauty of the Australian outback through the eyes of a remarkable woman and artist.
