Rosie: our featured artist at work

Rosie Ngwarraye Ross painting Sugar Dreaming

Rosie Ngwarraye Ross painting Sugar Dreaming

Rosie Ngwarraye Ross, one of our favourite Central Desert artists, painting in the art centre with fellow artists on what’s bound to be a hot day but they like to stay rugged up when it’s anything less than 40 degrees!

Rosie uses a bold palette to capture her love of the wild desert flowers and bush medicine plants found across her Country.

The omission of the sky in many of this groups compositions allows you to scan the landscape without any focal point thereby drawing your eye across the painting - in no particular order. It is when looking at these works, sometimes for the umpteenth time, we find something new. Almost like it’s secret.

We have a new Rosie in stock which will share with you in a blog early next week. Keep an eye out for it when it’s uploaded for sale on the website. It reminds us of a Monet…

The Desert is a Botanical Garden

View of Country - Margaret Kemarre Ross, Acrylic on Linen 61x51cm

View of Country - Margaret Kemarre Ross, Acrylic on Linen 61x51cm

This painting reminds us of the the colours you find in a Van Gogh - the glorious yellows in the still life works “Sunflowers” and the colour of “Irises”.

It is of course the Australian outback with its ever changing shades as the sun moves through the day altering the colour of the plants and rocky outcrops.

Margaret Kemarre Ross’s family have been outbush for thousands of years collecting bush medicine from their Alyawarr land. Alyawarr is a rich botanical garden for its inhabitants. Each flower serves a medicinal purpose. The little purple ones, for example, can be used for the flu as well as easing kidney pain. When mixed with water the pink ones help with sore eyes and the yellow ones are used to wash their skin.

While expressing her passion for bush medicines paintings also serves to communicate her love of Country as it “keeps culture strong”.

Our 'My Country' velvet collection

MyCountryRuthBluesofacloseup2.jpg

Bay Gallery Home brings you our My Country Ruth Blue, Red and Pink cotton velvet collection. As the latest edition to our award winning Aboriginal interiors collection we have chosen Aboriginal ‘Goanna Dreaming’ paintings by Ruth Nungarrayi Spencer selected on our last trip to the Central Desert communities we represent.

My Country embodies the Dreamtime stories still followed by this ancient culture for use in the every day.

One of the the four interiors surfaces (wallpapers, rugs, ceramic wall tiles and fabrics),  My Country references the Aboriginal philosophy and creative process, whereby all of creation is in relationship, at one with the land.  The original artworks'  particular provenance and symbols - inspired by mapping myths, rituals and sacred topography - results in a compelling, versatile aesthetic with a most subtle compositional depth of field, imbuing spaces with wider horizons of the imagination.

Our designers used techniques combined with high-res scanning process to accurately match every detail and color of the artists’ paintings.

The beauty and quality of our velvets reflect the origins of indigenous creative process and high-quality materials and British manufacturing skill.

We also offer a bespoke Made to Order service as well as selling the velvets by the metre.

Murdie Nampijinpa Morris Two Dogs Dreaming fine bone China

 'My Country' - Blue wallpaper depicting Kangaroo and Pigweed, found all over the Central Desert looking beautiful with chinaware designs by the world renowned artist Murdie Nampijinpa who paints Two Dogs Dreaming.  Murdie is one of the elders sometimes known as the "first contact" group who lived a nomadic traditional lifestyle with their families before the "white fella" made contact.  This generation performed ceremonies that, in some cases, are no longer performed but the Dreamtime stories are still told so subsequent generations can maintain their language and connection to the land - their Country.

Original artwork by Murdie is available from www.baygalleryhome.com.  These paintings were selected on our last visit to the outback.  There's a rawness, depth and spirit to them that speaks to you from thousands of years ago.
