Presenting a monthly curated exhibition program, the Koskela Gallery is a spotlight for Australian contemporary artists working across a range of media. We celebrate the creativity of our homegrown art scene, with a unique emphasis on emerging art for new collectors.
Jane Tangney & Tjanpi Desert Weavers
July 28 - August 26, 2018
Jane Tangney is a Western Australian artist immersed in the ever-evolving genre of landscape painting. Her sensitively observed works are richly nuanced responses - not only to place, but to broader notions of the human condition. Jane’s use of colour, paint handling and compositional forms are a lyrical blend of restraint and complexity. Heavy impasto paintings in oil and beeswax are often juxtaposed with works on paper that invite intimacy and lightness.
Tjanpi Desert Weavers is a social enterprise of the Ngaanyatjarra Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (NPY) Women’s Council created to enable women in remote central deserts to earn their own income from fibre art. Tjanpi represents more than 400 Aboriginal women artists from 26 remote communities on the NPY lands. The NPY lands cover approximately 350,000 square kms across the tri-state (WA, SA, NT) border region of Central Australia.
