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.
July 29 - August 27, 2017
A sneak peek of our upcoming exhibition Walma / Moon Rise, featuring black and white works by 15 of the brightest emerging and senior Indigenous Australian artists.
Walma is a Yolngu word, translating as ‘to emerge’ or ‘rise’, particularly in relation to the sun and moon, embodying the confidence and optimism within the current generation of Indigenous artists, and their continuation of the world’s oldest living culture.
The exhibition is timed to coincide with International Indigenous Peoples Day on Aug 9, the 2017 Darwin Aboriginal Art Fair and the 34th National Aboriginal and Torres-Strait Islander Art Award.

Having grown up in India amongst tremendous economic diversity and now living in Australia amongst huge cultural diversity, the contrast between consumption - mindful or mindless and austerity - forced or chosen, has never been more vivid for Gunjan Aylawadi. Through her unique and intricate, paper tapestry technique, she explores the intersection between craft traditions, sensory pleasures she experienced growing up and the new culture she finds herself in now. Crafting thoughtful mosaics out of personal reflections, she creates works with simple materials and processes that are as important as the end result - illustrating the quiet power of slowing down and a thoughtful absorption of our environments.
