It was a real honour to launch the new wallpaper editions to our ‘My Country’ design with origin Aboriginal interiors collection at Decorex 2018 amongst much admired brands including Timorous Beasties, Rapture & Wright and Thibaut. Bay Gallery Home delights in people coming across it for the first time and there was no shortage of enraptured people on our stand at Decorex 2018.
The artists we represent continue to explore the bountiful botanic aesthetic of the Australian outback sharing with us paintings of exquisite detail. We strive to replicate the painting as close to the original piece as possible thereby retaining the integrity of the artists original purpose when executing it.

Bay Gallery Home is working hard on creating 'Songlines' our first collection of fabrics based on paintings by artists we proudly represent. We have developed the world's first Aboriginal velvets available in three colours with slightly differing depictions of the Goanna Dreaming (Warnu Jukurrpa) - essentially a love story set in the Central Desert of Australia. In keeping with our 'design with origin' ethos we have been faithful to the original artwork in the design work thereby protecting the Dreamtime story and the intent of the artist. Keep an eye on the website over the next month or so as beautiful tableware, blinds and cushions will be amongst our first offerings.

Papunya Tula is the legendary site where the contemporary Aboriginal art movement bloomed becoming famous for its Western Desert dot art.
Amongst the different displaced Western Desert people's brought to Papunya Tula (Tula meaning small hill where a Honey ant dreaming sits) were Tommy Watson, Clifford Possum and Ningura Napurrula, each of whom went on to become wildly successful international artists.
The original company now operates from Alice Springs but we paid a visit to the existing art centre and found some of the sacred iconography depicted in the early works honoured while developing new interpretations of their ancient Dreamtime stories.
We had to keep a respectful distance while photographing the artists. Close up the paintings were breathtaking. Below is the landscape around the art centre.

Margaret Kemarre Ross, Bush Flowers & Medicine Plants.
"We look for these plants in rocky country, we can find a little purple plum that we use to clean the kidneys and sometimes for flu. The yellow flowers are used for scabies, we boil them in water and wash our skin with it. The pink flowers we use for when we have sore eyes, we mix the flowers with water and the colour changes to a light green."
The Australian Aboriginal people are the one of the oldest continuous populations on earth, and their visual language is considered one of the world’s oldest Art forms, spanning over 50,000 years. The connection to 'country' is essential. Their tribal Dreamings, creation and mapping myths, rituals and sacred topography inspire bold, beautiful abstract paintings featuring the landscape, plants and animals of Australia's central desert. The Aboriginals see no difference between themselves, the sky, the land and the animals they share it with. All are one and the same.

My Country, Bush Onion 1 ceramic tile
Bush onion, or janmarda, can be found in the river banks and are dug up using digging sticks. The Aboriginal people wait for the leaves to dry out before eating it. So long as the bulb is white inside, it will be eaten raw or cooked.
Through her painting, the tile artist Sarah Napurrula White is telling a Bush Onion Dreaming, or Janmarda Jukurrpa. One of the main sites for this story is Purrupurru, in the remote red centre of Australia, where you can see an old Jungarrayi man in the form of a large stone figure.
Sarah also likes to paint Bush Onion Dreamings because she likes the designs and patterns. When she’s not painting, Sarah works for the aged and children, and on weekends she loves to go hunting with the old people.
The majority of our artists are women who play an active role in their communities, not only practically but in building communal ties through the visual language of Dreamtime painting.
With their geometric harmony, these ceramic tiles lend themselves to versatile use, from en masse styling as a splash back, to design feature in our bespoke furniture range.

My Country, Emu Dreaming ceramic wall tile
Emu Dreaming denotes a sacred waterhole where initiation ceremonies are performed. The jealousy between Emus and the Australian Bustard are a theme of Dreamtime, and they would be found fighting over bush raisins around the site...
The artist, Sarah Napurrarula White, lives and paints several hours away from the main art centre. Every few weeks art centre workers drive three hours to the remote settlement on her traditional homelands that she shares with her young family.
Her paintings were used for several tile designs due to their simple, beautiful graphic nature – giving them an aesthetic versatility when used in space: whether modern, rustic or eclectic!

My Country, Wallpaper BLUE depicts Kangaroo plant & Pigweed plentiful after the rain, a rich source of food for Kangaroos.
In this depiction, Michelle Pula Morton introduces us to a microscopic view of the land she cherishes, an intimate portrayal that is a distinct departure from her typical work.
In 2013, Michelle was awarded the 30th Telstra National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art Award (NATSIAA) People’s Choice in 2013. The award recognises important contributions made by Indigenous artists from regional and urban areas throughout Australia, working in both traditional and contemporary media

Today we celebrate Australia's cultural richness by remembering the Australian Aboriginal Flag and its symbolic colours: black for the aboriginal people of Australia; yellow for the sun – the protector & giver of life; red for the earth, the ceremonial red ochres and the Aboriginal peoples' spiritual relationship to the land.
The flag was designed in 1971 by Aboriginal artist Harold Thomas. It is now an 'Official Flag of Australia', but was originally created for the land rights movement, establishing the inherent Aboriginal right to land.

"Our art is born from the dreams of each artist and the intense colours we see in our land."
My Country references the Australian Aboriginal philosophy and creative process, whereby all of creation is in relationship, at one with the land.
In our pioneering translations of our artists' artwork into interiors ranges : wallpapers, tiles, rugs, we bring something of the character of Australia's landscapes into your homes.
The artwork we represent stands in the tradition of a sophisticated visual language, composed of layers of regular irregularities of colour, geometry, repetition and scale dynamics.
The particular provenance and symbols of this art – mapping myths, rituals and sacred topography – results in a compelling, versatile aesthetic with a most subtle compositional depth of field. It imbues spaces with wider horizons of the imagination.
We are proud to introduce you to My Country !
