Rosella Namok

Queensland Indigenous artist Rosella Namok opens her solo exhibition “Naagchi Ngumu’luugku – I Come from There: Lockhart River, Cape York” at Japingka Gallery on Friday 22 November. David Wroth, Japingka director, says: “We are thrilled to have Rosella as our guest for the exhibition, so she can talk about her distinctive and inspiring work.  Her exhibition marks a special occasion in our presenting exciting indigenous art to the Western Australian audience.”

Rosella Namok rose to prominence in the late 1990s as a member of the Lockhart River Art Gang, a group of young artists working out of Cape York in northern Queensland. Born in 1979, Namok combines contemporary techniques with cultural narratives. Many works refer to the traditional stories of the Aangkum people and clans of her home country, while others explore personal subjects and emotional responses to the natural world.  Namok is represented in all major Australian public galleries and collections.

Two paintings by Rosella Namok were recreated to form the 20 metre backdrop to the US ballet company’s 2013 production of Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring. Namok’s paintings “Rain” and “Marks on Sand, After King Tide” both landscapes from the artist’s ancestral homeland in Lockhart River near Cape York, were chosen for the production in Houston.  Rosella Namok attended as guest of honour at the premiere. It was the artist’s first opportunity to see classical dance performed on stage.

Stanton Welch, the Houston Ballet’s Australian artistic director said “I found Rosella’s paintings to be unique, timeless, and universal. They reminded me of nature and of a universal landscape ideal for the production of Rite of Spring.” Rosella Namok’s paintings will be on view at Japingka Gallery until 22nd December.
